Durban, South Africa, March 15, 2018: Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced the completion of the largest hotel chain in South Africa with the construction of a new Master Hotel.
The company is the largest online retailer in South African retailing with over 1.8 million locations worldwide.
The company is planning to add more hotel stores and more guest services in Durban and Johannesburg.
Amazon.com said that the project is the latest in its plans to develop hotels in South and South-East Africa.
The hotel will include an 800-room hotel, a spa and guest services, a restaurant, and a grocery store.
The new hotel will also include a high-speed internet network.
The new Master hotel is the third major Amazon hotel project in South-South Africa.
Amazon announced plans to build a second, 7,000-room flagship hotel at the site of the former Durban International Airport in July 2018.
It is now building the new Master in Durham, a suburb of Johannesburg, the third-largest city in South South Africa.
In a statement, Amazon said the hotel will provide guests with a high level of comfort and convenience with a large number of hotel rooms and amenities, including a spa, meeting rooms, a hotel bar and a library.
The Master Hotel will also offer guests access to the new Amazon Prime Video delivery service, which will bring movies and TV shows to Amazon customers across the world.
“Our goal is to offer guests an exceptional experience, a high quality of life and an unparalleled selection of products and services,” Amazon said.
The project will take approximately five years to complete, and is expected to be complete by 2021.
The Durban Master Hotel is a joint venture between Amazon and the Durban Chamber of Commerce.
Amazon has partnered with Durban’s Chamber of Industry, Tourism and Business to build the new hotel.
The hotel is scheduled to open in 2019.
Amazon said that guests will be able to choose between two hotels: the Durbaran, a boutique hotel designed for luxury travelers, and the Pembwana, a standard hotel that is also available to other hotel guests.
Customers will be offered three hotel rooms, which can be customized to suit their preferences.
The Master Hotel’s signature product is the Amazon gift card, which has been featured in nearly every television ad in the United States and other major international media.
Customers will be given one gift card per day.
The Marriott brand, which owns the Durbans Durban-branded hotels, is partnering with Amazon to develop the Duraban, Durban Hotels and Durbannes Durban Hotels, a joint brand.
The Durban brand will also provide a range of other merchandise, including handbags and furniture, to the Durbes hotel guests through Amazon.
The two companies announced the purchase of more than 20 properties across South Africa and the region.
The sale includes several properties in Durbar, Durbania, Cape Town, Cape Hill, Cape York, Durbar-Natal and Mabubeni.
