- “Lamantin Beach Resort & Spa managed by Accor is a fantastic addition to our portfolio in Senegal,” says Mark Willis CEO India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey for Accor. “We are proud and happy to partner, once again, with Kasada on another wonderful project. Bringing the first Movenpick Hotels & Resorts property to the country is a testament, not only to the brand’s growth momentum, but also to the tourism appeal of Senegal as a destination.”
