R870m Houghton Hotel to Join the World’s ‘Exclusive Club’ – 28 June 2016
The Houghton Hotel, in Johannesburg’s plush suburb of Houghton, when finished in 2018, will be one of the most luxurious establishments in South Africa. The R870 million Houghton Hotel has awarded the final construction contract to Stefanutti Stocks. Houghton Hotel Project Manager, Andrew Morris, says Stefanutti Stocks’ excellent track record in the hospitality industry made the company a “natural choice” to complete the hotel.
“We were appointed through a process of amicable negotiations, where an innovative contracting structure was concluded to suit this particular project,” says Dietmar Scriba, Managing Director at Stefanutti Stocks Building Inland.
Morris reports that the earliest stages of construction have already been completed, with bulk earthworks, natural support and piling all installed. “We are well on track for the launch of the first hotel units in late 2017 with The Houghton Hotel opening its doors in 2018,” Morris says. This is set to be a “grand occasion” for South Africa’s hospitality industry, says Morris, as The Houghton Hotel promises to offer accommodation comparable to the best six- and seven-star establishments in the world.
This has secured it a place amongst the Leading Hotels of the World. Deniz Omurgonulsen, the organisation’s Vice President Membership, explains that a number of factors have earned the hotel entry into this “exclusive club”, including its park-like setting in Johannesburg’s greenbelt, proximity to Johannesburg’s top shopping and business districts and the overall luxuriousness of The Houghton Hotel experience.
