Club Sun ‘N’ Sand Kikambala, Ever been?
To some it is etched in their cherished memories as where they got to exchange their vows on that beautiful wedding day, others spend somewhat part of their lives providing service to numerous guests, and generally to many, this is the place associated with a well deserved and out of this world holiday vacation. Well whatever memory or experience it has offered you at any point, Club Sun ‘N’ Sand now remains but a construction site for the new Sh15 billion Ocean Seven apartments. Yes, the five-star beach resort with a capacity of 600 is to be demolished…shame.
The new construction is said to be as a result of the rising appetite for luxurious apartments; the proposed apartments will consist of two commercial blocks and five residential to be sold to investors. Aside from having 325 condominiums in 17, 19, and 25 storey towers, the 17-acre hotel plot shall feature an exercise park, flora and fauna, as well as a Biogas plant for recycling garbage.
Upon completion, locals are said to be given priority in employment with the expectation of 10,000 opportunities directly and indirectly. Kilifi governor, Amason Kingi stated that the county would abide by the 70 per cent local workforce and 30 per cent outsiders employment rule. So far, about 50 percent of the units have been sold to Kenyans.
