The hotel is also the first in Africa to be operated via the company’s management division, adding to an existing portfolio of franchised properties in Morocco, Ghana, Nigeria and Tunisia.
Conference facilities include seven meeting rooms catering for up to 375 guests, while five food and beverage outlets serve a range of African and international cuisines. There is a swimming pool and state-of-the-art rooftop gym, as well as direct access to the white sands of Jangwani Beach.
The 139 rooms comprise 117 superior rooms with ocean or garden views, 21 executive suites and one presidential suite.
Dan Ruff, Wyndham Hotel Group’s president and managing director for Europe, Middle East, Africa and the Indian Ocean, said: "The opening of Ramada Resort Dar es Salaam is of significant strategic importance for us. Given the increasing demand for quality, internationally-branded accommodation in Eastern Africa, as well as our commitment to getting closer to our guests and our customers through the expansion of our managed property division, it is a key milestone in our regional growth.
Construction on the hotel began in 2009.
Murtaza Fazal, owner of the Ramada Resort Dar es Salaam, said he was "proud" to be the first investor in Eastern African to introduce the Ramada brand to the market.
