BERJAYA BEACH RESORT AND CASINO SUFFERS SECOND FIRE IN A YEAR
Swift action by well trained staff was reportedly the main reason for a second fire in the year being brought under swift control without spreading further into the resort’s facilities. The speciality pizzeria restaurant caught fire in the deep of yesterday night, according to a regular source on Mahe around 3.30 am, but the firebrigade, once alerted, arrived at the scene within the space of less than 10 minutes with a dozen fire fighters assisting the hotel team already on site and as a result the fire was put out within half an hour.
A fire on 22nd of January, as reported here, had caused substantially greater damage at the time, since fully repaired of course, but also led to additional efforts to train the staff on fire prevention and fire fighting skills, well worth the expense as last night’s fire proved.
The Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Beach Resort and Casino is one of the Seychelles largest resort hotels and has been a feature for the past nearly 4 decades but kept up with modern day standards by regular renovations and upgrading of rooms and public areas. 232 rooms and suites, 3 restaurants and bars offer guests a choice of accommodation and different menus and the attached Casino is a magnet for many who are trying lady luck at night.
