Briatore’s Billionaire’s Resort in Malindi set for August opening


Flavio Briatore’s 500 million Kenya Shilling investment in the Billionaire Resort will pay off when the new luxury resort in Kenya’s seaside town of Malindi will open its doors to the owners of the apartments in August this year.

Briatore, the former Renault F1 team boss before having to retire in disgrace over a staged accident at the Singapore GP in 2008, was reportedly in Malindi over the weekend to inspect progress on the new resort. Already complete are the beach restaurant, open since end December last year, and the Casino which was completed in March and work on the 24 luxury apartments and public areas is continuing at full throttle, on schedule for a mid August opening. According to media statements made by Briatore during his most recent visit, 80 percent of the units have already been sold. It is not clear if these apartments will only be occupied by the owners or if they, by arrangement with the management, can sublet them to paying guests. The sales price per apartment also appears to be a tightly guarded secret as are the identities of the buyers so far.

Briatore already owns the Lion in the Sun Resort which features only 16 luxuriously appointed bedrooms and suites and where charges start at 400 Euro for a single and 600 Euro for a double and from 700 Euros for a suite

Also open already is the Thalaspa Henry Chenot, where guests of the Lion in the Sun will be able to experience a wellness regime during their stay, complemented by tailor made menus from the kitchen team based on fresh organic ingredients, low on calories but high on taste and nutritional value. Malindi reloaded, Version 2.0 coming up, so watch this space for more news as and when available.

  6. Hi, part of the reason why some future employees are jobless is failure to look for jobs at the right places! Despite many asking for a job at Millionnaire’s on this blog and being advised to apply directly, many more are still asking the same question! Before posting I read all the previous comments even though I’m not looking for a job there. Does it mean these job seekers are too busy to read? Or just disinterested? My advice: Please take your time and do enough research on the establishment you want to work for. That way you will at least be sure your application gets to the right person. All the best!

    Sorry W. for having to write this advice here. I like following your Aviation, Tourism and Conservation news!

    1. Thank you Steve for reading my blog, and in
      some details it seems. This is not the only case,
      I get regular enquiries for the Boma Hotel about
      which I wrote about three years ago, or for airlines
      where I wrote about their recruitment teams coming to
      Eastern Africa. It seems many just fly at the opportunity
      to ‘apply’ without a second thought where to apply.
      Some in fact respond to me to get them email contacts
      and personal phone numbers of GM’s or HR managers …
      You might think seriously? Yes, seriously!!!
      If they do not know how to use Google or other search
      engines, what does that tell us … or perhaps they
      are too lazy to do their own research …
      Thanks for your contributions today.

  7. I have a feeling part of the reason why our unemployed youth are having hard time in getting jobs is applying for the jobs at the wrong places! I’m surprised to find potential employees falling over themselves asking for jobs at Billionnaire’s on this blog which is not even the Millionnaire’s club website! Despite Wolfgang telling them to apply at the right place, others still ask the same? Before posting I read most previous posts even thought I’m not looking for the said jobs. Does it mean our jobseekers don’t have time or they are just disinterested in seeking information this valuable to them??? Do they really expect a serious employer to consider them on the basis of a blog post? Have we failed in giving our graduates the right advice???
    Sorry Wolfgang but I had to intervene on your blog that I like reading. I always find it informative in the ATC domain!
