Receiving the award, the General Manager of Sankara Nairobi, Mr. Moshi Perera noted that this was a huge milestone for the hotel, as “we are committed to exceeding customers’ expectation in every respect”.
In attendance at the award ceremony, SafeHotels Global Operations Director, Andy Williams asserted, “safety is a major concern especially for hotels and should be taken seriously. Our company was created due to the fact that safety is one of the main concerns within the international hotel and meeting industry today.”
Often times, a lack of measures is taken to meet the growing safety and security concerns. Safehotels’ solution is to provide objective third party evaluation of business hotel and conference venues’ security standard world wide – covering all important aspects of hotel and conference security.
