The General Manager said the ten year lease had started on the 1st December 2013 and will end in 2023. According to the head of the Finance section, they are presently engaged in a massive renovation work in the hotel as this has not been done for the past seven years. “Another challenge we are facing is on the issue of the Ebola, as guests are not forthcoming because of the outbreak in some countries in West Africa,” he said.

He said the hotel is still operating under the name Ocean Bay Hotel Resort. On how much the hotel was leased, the head of Finance said he cannot answer this question as he is just an employee.    ]]>
