Angelina Jolie and her devotion to Namibia became a source of inspiration for Zannier Hotels, which is to open two hotels in Namibia next year and is seeking a third project in the country.
So far, France, Cambodia, Namibia, Belgium, Vietnam – Zannier Hotels is spreading its stylish touch worldwide, and the role of Angelina Jolie in this expansion is very strong. In 2006, the Hollywood actress showed the world how beautiful, interesting and friendly Namibia is.
The company already owns Le Chalet by Zannier in Megeve, France, which was the first hotel created by Arnaud Zannier and Phum Baitang, which opened in Siem Reap, Cambodia in 2015.
Jolie’s love to Namibia helps to attract the tourists
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made the great favour to Namibia when chosen this African country as a birth place to their first child Shiloh. The celeb couple just escaped Hollywood to give the birth of their offspring in Namibia. Later, not only the stars were inspired by Jolie’s love to Namibia, but hotelier too.
It was following a suggestion made by actress Angelina Jolie, who stayed at Phum Baitang for several months when making a Netflix film in the country, that Zannier sought out the projects in Namibia.
“Namibia was an incredible discovery for me – I was so impressed by the nature and the fact that you are completely cut off from the outside world,”
Zannier said. But before the Namibia projects, Zannier Hotels is opening 1898 The Post in the Belgian city of Ghent, where Zannier and his company are based.
