A select group of galaxy hotels owned by tycoon Sudhir Ruparelia are now fully open and ready to serve customers and help to ease the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Some of the group hotels and restaurants that will open include Kabira Country Club, Speke Apartments, Bukoto Heights, Boulevard Apartments, Speke Apartments-Kitante and Speke Resort Muyonyo.
Speke Hotel, Forrest Cottages and Dolphin Suites are being prepared and the plan is to have them open soon.
The opening of Hotels and restaurants by Ruparelia will inevitably offer relief to Ugandans who have been locked down in their homes for months and will now be able to order for their favourite cuisines.
The Kabira Country Club is one of Kampala’s favourite high-end relaxing getaway, offering a world class restaurant, gymnasium, accommodation and a heated swimming pool.
President Museveni in February announced the closure of hotels, restaurants and other entertainment places to contain the spread of the Corona virus.
However, with no deaths registered in Uganda, the government has been partially easing the lockdown with hotels and restaurants now allowed to open for customers to pick cuisines on takeaway.
The restaurants and hotels are operating in accordance with World Health Organisation guidelines and observing social distancing for both clients and employees. Employees are wearing face masks and distance between tables has been increased.
