SUN AFRICA HOTELS EXPRESSES CONFIDENCE IN COAST MARKET WITH NEW PROPERTY
(Posted 04th October 2013)
Sun Africa Hotels has confirmed that work is progressing well to finally establish a property at the Kenya coast, north of Mombasa. The beachside resort will offer guests 20 suites when completed, in a set up similar to Sun Africa’s Sovereign Suites in Limuru outside Nairobi. Luxurious lounges and public areas will give guests that special feeling of ‘belonging’ as they already do at Sovereign, equally an all suite property twice recognized in the past by World Luxury Hotel Awards in 2011 and 2012.
The Mombasa ‘Sun Africa Beach Resort’ is also expected to join the ‘Preferred Hotels’ under their ‘Boutique’ brand when open in 2014.

Meanwhile has work also started for a new tented safari camp in the Masai Mara due to open in 2014 too, similar to the set up at the Naivasha based Kiboko Luxury Camp, offering a small number of suites under canvas with all the facilities of a fully fledged safari lodge and yet small enough to offer that feeling of privacy away from the often maddening crowds.
In a related development will Sun Africa later this month also launch a guest and corporate loyalty programme, Sun Achiever and Sun Ambassador which will earn points and benefits in any of SAH’s units. Details of the new scheme will, as usual, be featured here first.
Sun Africa’s other properties are the Lake Naivasha Country Club and the Keekorok Lodge besides which they operate Balloon Adventure out of Keekorok. The Lake Baringo Club, as recently narrated in a story here, is closed until further notice as a result of risen lake water levels.
