When completed in 2020, the property will feature an all-day dining restaurant, a lounge/bar, an Executive Club Lounge, a state-of-the-art fitness centre and a contemporary meeting space.

The property will be in the heart of the city’s Le Plateau business district, home to government buildings and local landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral and Banco National Park.

Mövenpick Hotel Abidjan will be the company's first property in Côte d'Ivoire and one of four currently in active development in the region.

The other three are Mövenpick Hotel & Residences Nairobi in Kenya, which is on track to open in 2018, Mövenpick Hotel Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, set to open in 2019, and Mövenpick Hotel & Conference Centre Abuja in Nigeria set for completion in 2020.
