Mvenpick Hotels & Resorts has just taken over a five-star landmark hotel in Karachi from Sheraton, marking the first property in Pakistan to be managed by the upscale international hospitality company of Swiss heritage



The 407-room hotel, now known as the Mvenpick Hotel Karachi, is based in the city's prime Club Road location and a major refurbishment “ renovating two guest room floors, all restaurants and the lobby “ will be carried out later this year.

The 184-room Mvenpick Hotel Casablanca enjoys a rooftop pool, spa, three restaurants, six meeting rooms and a relaxed urban style. Known as Hotel Casablanca Plaza, the 16-storey hotel was completely renovated in 2011 and will see further enhancements to its restaurants and lounges.



The company's third Moroccan property will be opened at the end of 2014 on the exclusive Avenue Mohammed V in the Hivernage District of Marrakech. Currently under construction, the 374-room Mvenpick Hotel Marrakech will be one of the city's largest conference hotels.

The hotel's construction has been carried out in line with the latest international sustainable standards, using recycled materials and state-of-the-art energy and water saving technology, while the hotel's interiors are by renowned designer Sinan Kafadar and evoke the naval influence of the Golden Horn estuary during the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods
