The Dusit D2 hotel will re-open its doors to the public in June after the January terror attack that left 21 people dead.
The hotel lost six employees; four on full-time basis and two were contracted security guards.
Still affected by the well coordinated attack, the Chief Operating Officer Lim Boon Kwee assured the guests that they are putting in place “rigorous security procedures.”
“While we are still deeply affected by the recent events at the 14 Riverside complex, morale is high and everyone is pulling together to create a special return for the hotel. As ever, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remain our priority, and we will continue to have rigorous security procedures in place that contribute to the high levels of comfort and care for which we are known worldwide,” Mr Kwee said.
According to the hotel general manager Michael Metaxas noted that the continued support from the public is their driving force.
“This positive energy is driving us as we prepare the hotel to delight guests and visitors once more with delightful service, impressive design, and safe and comfortable surroundings for people to socialise, stay and conduct business,” Mr Metaxas said.
The Jihadist group Al-Shabaab took responsibility for the attack and in custody are tens of individuals connected to the deadly attack.
The DCI George Kinoti is apparently looking into the involvement of CBK Supervision Department, the Financial Reporting Center, Safaricom’s M-Pesa Supervision Department and officials from Standard Chartered Bank, Kenya Commercial Bank, Equity Bank, Diamond Trust Bank and Cooperative Bank.
“We will go for each and every person from the banking sector to the mobile money transfer networks that were lax in their work,” Kinoti told a local daily.
