Construction works on a multi-million golf resort that will have a five-star hotel and luxurious villas have kicked off in Naivasha.
Dubbed Aberdare Hills Golf Resort, the facility will be built on a 1,600 acres parcel of land near the Aberdares Hills and next to the Flower Business Park which comprises tens of flourishing flower farms.
According to Dr Pritam Panesar, the chairman of Panda Development Company that is undertaking the project, the resort will be built in two phases – the first phase involving the construction of an 18 hole championship golf course and phase two involving the construction of other social amenities.
“Part of the master plan is ready for the first phase and works on the boundaries for the resort are underway,” Dr Panesar said adding that the project is expected to be fully complete in seven years.
On completion, the resort will have a championship golf course (to be ready in 18 months), a five star hotel, a club house and luxurious villas. The development is valued at Sh120 billion.
According to the lead consultant for the project Melanie Richards from the UK, the luxurious five bedroom villas will be build on strategic places on the vast piece of land.
The resort will be self-sufficient in terms of water and power supply.
“We shall have some dams that will collect water and we also intend to harness wind power making the resort self-sufficient in terms of water and power supply,” said Melanie.
