THE NEW ‘CHUI’ HOSTS NAIROBI TRAVEL AGENTS FLOWN IN BY SAFARILINK
Soon after the official re-opening of the Leopard Beach Resort and Spa on the 12th December did trade partner Safarilink fly a group of 25 Nairobi based travel agents to the Ukunda airfield, where they were met by the resort’s vehicles and taken to get a good look at the new spots this Chui has added.
Hotel supremo Chris Modigell and his team were at hand to greet the agents and show them the new facilities during their 3 day stay, wining and Chaine de Rotisseur dining included.
The Chui team also shared information with this correspondent that the award winning resort, recently crowned a three time in a row champion by the World Travel Awards as Kenya’s best beach resort, now receives over a third of its annual business from within Kenya and the wider East African region, where word of mouth propaganda by past guests has become a successful marketing tool.
Cooperation with airlines such as Air Uganda, which fly daily nonstop from Entebbe to Mombasa, has made the sale of coast holiday packages easy for Ugandans and expatriates living here and the superb quality of accommodation, food and hospitality in general draw ever larger numbers to the Chui.
National airline Kenya Airways too operates holiday packages in conjunction with the Leopard Beach, bringing in guests from across the African network for visitors to enjoy the endless white beaches of Diani, themselves repeatedly named as among the Best Beaches in the World.
Latest information from the resort is that it has been fully booked since the 16th of December until well into the New Year and that the completion and addition of the new 2 and 3 bedroom private villas, 28 in total, cannot come soon enough, considering the demand the resort enjoys. Happy Holidays indeed.
