Sun Africa Hotels has branched out into hotel management with a new brand named “SUN 101.” The hotel group, managed on behalf of the owners by Mr. Rahul Sood, himself no stranger to Uganda where he oversaw the pre-opening and opening of the Metropole Hotel back in 2007, has confirmed exclusively this morning that they have signed up their first client which will be a three-star hotel in one of the sub-hubs outside the Central Business District. Of course, this will not end with just one property under the SUN 101 brand, and more signings are expected to be announced soon.
Sun Africa Hotels’ Mombasa property is also advancing towards opening, due later this year, as a range of additional equipment is expected to arrive in mid-June in time for the traditional mid-season for the Kenya coast.
Located next to the Voyager Resort, the Sun Africa Hotels Beach Resort Mombasa is a small boutique hotel development with just 18 rooms including several suites, thought to be a perfect match to its sister properties like Sovereign Suites in Limuru and the Kiboko Luxury Tented Camp on the shores of Lake Naivasha. Formal announcements about SUN 101 will be made in due course, as will further updates on the timeframe of the resort opening in Mombasa.
