The Hotel is located at Umodzi Park in Lilongwe which also includes the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC).

Information, Tourism and Culture Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa described the opening of the hotel as a milestone in the country’s history in line with government’s vision of boosting the tourism sector and the economy.

“The hotel will enhance Malawi’s appeal as a destination for international conference and tourism, thereby bringing in much needed foreign exchange and job creation for the locals,” Nankhumwa said.

Peermont President’s Hotel and BICC were constructed during the late President, Bingu wa Mutharika’s reign. While BICC has been in use, the hotel had remained idle after construction was completed.

It comprises 130 rooms and suites, with 60 Classic King Rooms, 60 Classic Twin Rooms, a special assistance room and 10 Presidential Suites with air-conditioning and 40-inch Television.

Peermont is a South Africa-based group running hotels, casinos and resorts in South Africa, Botswana and now Malawi.

    WE do not need a foreign company to run a hotel. This is unreasonable. If you want let them build their own hotel. Let Sunbird run it.

  9. Mchikumbe Nthesa says:

    The hotel has to be opened its long time it was completed 2012. Lloyd, the request for operators was advertised and if those brands you are talking about did not express interest what do you think government could have done. You sound to have exposure but not knowledgeable, you dont force or handpick operators

  10. chiphwanya says:

    I don’t like the name though, “peermont presidents” as if its for the presidents only. No no no malawians we can do better than this, just change the Name pliz

  11. Dziko says:

    So you still need South Africans to do it after all what they have done to your sons and daughters in their country?

  12. mbuyun says:

    How I wish all presidents be without advisors. He made some of his dreams a reality. Lo! Came second term, with New wife and new advisors Malawi mayooh! May his soul rest in peace .

  13. ujeni says:

    This was funded by the Chinese and built by the Chinese. Malawians stop claiming foreign funded and built structures as if you toiled for it. Learn to build your own things.

  14. Truck says:

    That’s good move people get some employment keep it up!

  15. Nyani wa ku Mwananyani says:

    That Bingu guy had the interests of Malawi at heart, definitely when it comes to infrastructure. Witness this (and BICC), the new stadium, mines, and the numerous roads. We should mention those roads even though many are not completed because the projects were scuttled by atsamunda – i.e. foreigners egged on by ensconced disgruntled politicians and NGO contractors. No country was ever developed without modern infrastructure. His training in economics served him and our country well. No question.
    Too bad Bingu did not sprout onto the political scene earlier. Malawi would not be the laughing stock of SADC it is today. It would have been the envy, by now!

  16. Lloyd says:

    We could surely have gone for a much stronger brand than Peermont. Names like Sheraton, Hilton, Rotana, Le Meridien would have helped in bringing home a global brand. Mwadyapo zingati from Peermont? Reminds me of the Uranium contracts in Karonga.
