HOSPITALITY: Mombasa’s five- star hotel Pride Inn Paradise Hotel is set to re-open today after nearly four months of closure.

The hotel’s General Manager Ann Peggy, expressed optimism of a bright re-start, especially ahead of resumption of international flights on Saturday.

“We are very optimistic that soon business will be back to normal; the truth be told Kenyans are tired of staying in one place and if they can visit a safe place for a get-away then we are ready to receive them” she said.

Thorough inspection

Peggy added that the hotel  had gone thorough inspection from Ministry of Health (MOH) and it has qualified as a safe facility and has been allowed to re-open.

“We have met all required measures that include maintaining social distancing, fumigation, creating awareness on the Covid-19 and having all our staff tested for the virus” she added.

She also confirmed that the hotel had set aside an isolation room and has a certified clinical officer and a doctor on call in case of an emergency or a suspected case of Covid-19. 

“We have in place masks and sanitisers as our welcome kit, again we are following the guidelines by MOH to screen for fevers  when our guests arrive”.

The opening of the Hotel according to Peggy has been necessitated by the growing demand for accommodation and meetings in the last two months.

“We have demand especially for accommodation and meetings which is once again rising after the two months lockdown.

The hotel has been receiving bookings from local business people and especially for conferences as well as others interested in merrymaking,” she noted.
