THE PLUSH Pearl of Africa hotel has finally opened its doors to the public.
And what an amazing place it is!
An eye spinning Shs1.75 trillion has been sunk in to lift the megastructure to its dizzying height.
It has been a work 11 years in the making – since 2006 precisely – and with its completion, the owners have all reason to smile.
Businessman Muhammed Hamid has partnered with Carlson Rezidor Group, a world leading hotel operator, to make this business venture a reality.
The 296-room facility has luxurious rooms, two restaurants, three bars, a 15th floor executive lounge, nine meeting rooms and a cutting-edge business center.
“This facility is definitely one of the best in Africa and the world. It is going to be the first Quorvus Collection Hotel in Africa and the fourth in the world,” said the hotel CEO.
At least 15 floors out of the 22 will be opened for use by the public, with 250 fully-furnished rooms.
Everything at the facility is unique, from services to the setup of rooms and high quality standards.
Guests should brace themselves for five-star treatment
The facility has a state of the art spacious gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Expert designers and engineers to make the finishing designs and setups were employed.
Currently, over 200 workers, mainly Ugandans, have been trained for a year to handle business in the hotel, with the hope that the facility will attract mainly international tourists planning visits in the East African region.
“We know the hotel is going to boost tourism in the country and there will be a chain of other financial benefits,” said the CEO.
