Explore Angola: The tourism industry seeks to turn Covid-19 into ‘advantage’
The losing effect of the Covid-19 pandemic around the world has been a source of great hope for those who want to travel for business or vacation. Especially in countries such as Angola in Africa, the measures implemented jointly by the tourism sector actors after Covid-19 have managed to minimize the dangers to health. Hotels in Angola have set goals as “maximum health safety and hospitality”.
It is possible to see how Angola hosts its guests in the best way at The Mangais Golf Resort Hotel, which is built in a nature like the capital Luanda.
“We also have a haram for horse riding, fields for football and rugby. Besides the hotel, the restaurant also has a unique view. The Kwanza River is very beautiful,” says Catarina de Castro, director of Maingais, who has the only golf course on his property.
All over the world, hotels are going through a tough test due to the pandemic. This resulted in hotels, in particular, to implement very strict health protocols. In this way, the hotel was able to continue not to close its doors and to serve its customers.
Nelson Martins, staying at the hotel, states that another “advantage” of the hotel is the playgrounds and areas for children. “They are in a green field. I love being in touch with nature”.
Angola’s luxury service industry is still in its infancy. But thanks to countries such as Kenya, South Africa and Botswana, huge goals have been set for the future.
Kenyan Ambassador Josphat K. Maikara states that Mangais is “one of the best places to visit” in Luanda. LTINI pointed out that tourism will grow rapidly if such facilities are developed in the country, and states that Kenya is “ready” to engage in joint ventures and provide support.
In Luanda, the luxury Epic is a project that guides you along the way. It attracts the attention of customers from the business sector, which continues to come mostly during the pandemic period. Visitors feel safe thanks to the hotel’s health protocol that puts health above all else.
Catarina De Pina Joana, Marketing Manager of Epic Sana Hotel, underlines that they have given their employees rigorous training on Covid-19 rules and that this has greatly benefited them.
Underlining that the hotel staying due to Covid should inspire trust in the customer, Tunde Laniyan, business person, says that Epic Sana is “very good” in this regard.
The new Intercontinental Hotel in the capital is also a sign that important steps are being taken for the growth of the tourism sector in the country. The hotel, which will start accepting reservations from September, has received its architecture from diamond and is the first five-star hotel in the country.
