The new luxury waterfront EnglishPoint Marina in Mombasa will be commissioned in June this year. The completed marina is unique and exceptional in its own way as currently it is the only one that is built along the east coast of Africa.
The waterfront, which will be open to public, faces Mombasa’s Old Town and has been designed to suit most customers as it integrates a hotel, apartments, restaurant, casinos, a public boardwalk and a marina where luxury boats will be moored. It also constitutes a total of 88 berths which have access to all hotel services.
The facility is anticipated to be a key development that might positively tilt the scales of the ailing tourism sector in Kenya and make it boom once again. It has already started operations by receiving guest bookings as it undergoes its final touches.
“We are through with the hardware and busy finalizing on the software. We have witnessed a wonderful response from interested investors and visitors. We even already have guests in the rooms,” said the property owner, Mr. Alnoor Kanji.
Mr. Kanji explained that the prices are favourable and affordable to their entire guests as the three-bedroom apartments go for between US$ 472,000 and US$ 932,000, and a penthouse which goes for US$ 1.9m.
The daily rates for serviced apartments range from between US$ 198 to US$ 329, while daily hotel charges range from US$ 165, US$ 219 and US$ 274 for single, double and suites respectively.
