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.

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
