The chain has signed a joint venture with the prestigious tourism group Tikida to renovate the Rivoli hotel, centrally located in Casablanca, and transform it into one of the city’s best 5-star establishments.

On 25th October 2016. Casablanca is the business centre of Morocco and one of the nation’s most cosmopolitan cities. This is the reason why the Barceló Hotel Group set its sights on the city when it added its first Moroccan establishment in 2006: the Barceló Casablanca. Now, 10 years later, it has returned to announce the agreement with the Tikida Group, which is made up of the Bennabes and Marrache families, to establish a joint venture that will manage the property and the renovation of the centrally located Rivoli hotel.
