The hospitality industry at the Coast has received a major boost after the newest luxury hybrid accommodation facility, the Nyali Golf View Residence, opened its doors to the public.

Deputy President William Ruto visited the facility on Saturday.
The facility is associated with Dr Simon Gicharu, founder and chairman of the Mount Kenya University (MKU).
Ruto welcomed the entry of the hotel into the Mombasa’s tourism market, saying it would help improve accommodation in the tourist resort city.
He said the new investment ‘fits well’ into the national government’s plan on housing, a key pillar in the Big Four development agenda of food security, affordable housing, universal healthcare and manufacturing.
The DP said he was happy that local experts played a big role in the construction of “this fabulous building” as plumbers, masons and electrical engineers, all who graduated from local technical institutions, were involved.

He announced that the national government would put up 3,000 to 5,000 low-cost houses constructed in the first phase as the Big Four agenda takes shape. “In the long run the formidable housing plan will see 20,000 houses constructed in Mombasa,’’ he said.
He said the affordable and low-cost housing programe seeks to give accommodation to over six million Kenyans living in informal settlements, create jobs for the youth and generally stimulate the economy.

Kilifi County Minister for Tourism Nahida Mohamed Athman said the new facility has opened its doors when the tourism sector is on a high note with hotels reporting very good occupancies.
‘’Tourism at the moment is very positive as arrivals are up, hotels are full and the airports are recording high arrivals as December and New Year holidays beckon,” said Ms Athman.
Chief Executive Officer of Goldwyne Consult, Benedict Mutuku, who is managing the property, said they were committed to luxury experiences for guests.
Dr Mutuku said the new hybrid residential building also boasted of a presidential suite.
He said the hotel consisted of furnished and unfurnished rooms, noting it would help plug demand for beds in Mombasa during peak holiday seasons.
