Leopard Beach Resort re-opening
tentatively put to 12th December

LUXURY SOUTH COAST LEOPARD BEACH RESORT AND SPA
RE-BUILING ON COURSE FOR MID DECEMBER RE-OPENING

 

Coastweek -- The management of the 'Chui', as the Leopard Beach Resort and Spa is fondly referred to by friends and aficionados, has confirmed that the present rebuilding of parts of the resort damaged by a fire two months ago, is on course for a provisional reopening date of 12th December, just in time for the Christmas and New Year season.

It is understood that sections of the hotel damaged by the fire have been taken down and are being rebuilt from scratch, giving the 'Chui' an even fresher look as brand new, state of the art facilities can now be introduced, making a virtue out of the tragedy.

The hotel management also confirmed that the construction of the 28 new garden and forest villas, offering either two or three bedrooms, remains on course for a full opening in early 2013.

This will form a new standard of resort accommodation for discerning travelers with their own private pools and a separate fusion restaurant, which will add to the 5 restaurants already in place across the sprawling resort complex on one of Kenyas finest beaches.

Chris Modigell, the brain behind the continued success and popularity of the 'Chui' expressed his satisfaction with the rebuilding progress.

The exact re-opening date would depend on the timely arrival of newly ordered furniture and equipment, the approvals from local authorities for the re-building of the affected sections of the resort in a modernized style and the timely settlement of the remaining insurance payouts.

  • Notably, it is also Chris Modigell's birthday today, so 'Happy Birthday' to him and all the best to the entire team at the 'Chui' towards the reopening of this award winning resort.
