Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to the Bank’s website, this summary covers equity investments by Kasada Hospitality Fund LP (Kasada) of Mauritius, through Osprey DSS Limited of Mauritius, into Lamantin Beach Hotel S.A. (OpCo) and S.C.I. Ouest-Africa (PropCo) of Senegal. MIGA has been requested to provide political risk insurance coverage for up to EUR 20.4 million against the risks of expropriation, transfer restriction and currency inconvertibility, and war and civil disturbance for a period of up to 15 years.

The project consists of the acquisition and subsequent refurbishment and repositioning of Lamantin Beach Hotel and Blue Bay (the "Hotel") in Saly, Senegal. The acquisition of the Hotel was completed in September 2022.

This project is part of a Master Contract issued to Kasada in 2021, which covers a portfolio of existing and new hotels in Sub-Saharan Africa. Kasada Hospitality Fund is a private equity fund with a focus on the Sub-Saharan Africa hospitality sector. The fund is owned by the Qatar Investment Authority (Qatar's sovereign wealth fund) and Accor (the 6th largest hotel management company in the world) as limited partners. Kasada expects to establish a portfolio of more than 20 hotels (estimated 4,000 hotel keys) requiring a total investment (debt and equity) of US$1 billion.
