“The 10 storey 4 star hotel is a huge investment and proof of the huge potential the county has,” Machakos governor Dr Alfred Mutua said during the launch.
“The hotel will boost our tourism and the hospitality sector.”
Dr Mutua pledged to continue supporting investments in Machakos and encouraged more investors to set up hospitality and recreational facilities in the county.
The fast expanding headquarters of Machakos County has been grappling with lack of high quality hotel accommodation.
“This facility has a lot to offer in terms of conferencing given the proximity of Machakos to Nairobi. It offers a good alternative for corporate organisations in Nairobi who would like to have events in good but not faraway places,” Mr Kioko said.
The hotel, whose value is yet to be disclosed, was funded by Kenya Commercial Bank.
