ONE of the country’s flagship hotels in Kariba, Lake View Sun, will be shutting down all operations with effect from Friday next week.
Lake View is owned by the Z
imbabwe Sun Leisure Group.
Low guest volumes to the Kariba area have necessitated the closure, because of unsustainable business.
“However, we remain committed to Kariba as a destination as we continue operating one of our finest hotels in the area, the Caribbea Bay Sun.
Caribbea Bay Sun will be able to absorb the current depressed volumes,” said the Zimsun Leisure Group chief executive officer, Shingi Munyeza.
“During the time of closure, we shall take the opportunity to carry out refurbishments to the property so that we position it competitively for any future boom in tourism. Our closure will not affect our staff who were working at the hotel at the time, as they will all be absorbed by sister hotels within our group,” said Munyeza.
In addition to low tourist volumes, operations in the industry have also been greatly affected by the prevailing fuel problems. – Staff Reporter.
