Protea Hotels by Marriott is celebrating its 40th anniversary with significant expansions. The brand announced the opening of its first property in Angola and a new hotel in Pretoria, South Africa. These new locations—Protea by Marriott Luanda and Protea by Marriott Pretoria Hatfield—aim to offer both business and leisure travelers a chance to experience vibrant local cultures and warm hospitality. The hotels promise exceptional accommodation, modern amenities, and world-class service.

Protea Hotels by Marriott, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s extensive portfolio, has grown remarkably since its inception in July 1984. Initially starting with four hotels in South Africa, the brand now operates over 60 properties across South Africa and eight other African countries. These countries include Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and now Angola. The brand’s widespread presence in primary and secondary business centers, as well as desirable leisure destinations, makes it a popular choice for travelers exploring Africa.

Celebrating Four Decades of Excellence

Sandra Schulze-Potgieter, Vice President of Premium & Select Brands for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa at Marriott International, highlighted the significance of this milestone. She said, “This month we celebrate four decades of exceptional service and genuine African hospitality. What better way to commemorate this milestone than by further strengthening Protea Hotels’ legacy with our first hotel in Angola and the ongoing expansion of the brand in South Africa. Both properties will combine contemporary comfort with a deep appreciation for local culture and heritage, offering guests a unique and enriching stay.”
