Since 2007, Batipart decided to diversify its economic interests and expand activities internationally. The development of ONOMO is today one of the international investment axes of the Batipart group.
In 2009, Batipart took part in the creation of ONOMO, a new hotel group with the ambition of making ONOMO Hotels the leading pan-African hospitality platform in the 3* segment.
Batipart currently holds 71.64% of ONOMO following a fundraise in November 2017 attracting two new investors namely CDC Group PLC and CM-CIC Capital.
ONOMO Hotels is an African 3* hotel platform targeting clients in the business segment. ONOMO Hotels offer a unique guest experience at an affordable rate in Africa, combining contemporary comfort with the African art of living, while ensuring tailored and state-of-the-art security and connectivity. ONOMO establishes itself in the business districts of the capitals and major gateway cities on the African continent.
ONOMO are investors, developers and managers of their international standard hotels. Given the complexity to adapt to different countries an owner-manager model is prioritised. Their approach is based on 5 fundamental pillars: Economy, ecology, cultural integration, technology and security.
In 2019, with more than 600 employees, ONOMO manages 15 hotels representing a total of 2000 keys throughout the African continent, notably in Morocco (Rabat, Casablanca), in West Africa (Conakry, Lomé, Abidjan, Dakar, Bamako and Libreville), South Africa (Cape Town, Durban, Sandton) and East Africa (Kigali). In 2018, ONOMO generated 24.5M EUR in revenue and plans to generate close to 40M EUR in 2019.
ONOMO controls a number of real estate holdings representing a sizeable development pipeline, amounting to approximately 13 hotels and 1500 keys secured to complete its hotel portfolio. 5 hotels (680 keys) are in construction in Douala, Casablanca, Tanger, Maputo and Kampala.
