"Jones is right - commented Roberto Marini - you have to start from the redevelopment of Malindi, to focus on a classy clientele. It 's time to say enough to all inclusive holidays and holiday villages.
And even on the demolition of certain structures I agree. It would be too good Malindi back to what it was five years ago. "
Even Roberto Lenzi, owner of Crystal Bay and 7 Islands Resort and Paparemo Beach, is convinced that the upgrade of Kilifi County must start the services.
"We have the beauty of the area - says Lenzi - Watamu has everything to be the Formentera Africa. But we want rules, clean, elegant and functional buildings. Only then you can push those who want to invest in building elite structures ready to accommodate a clientele in step with the times we love fun and can afford to spend, in exchange for beauty and quality. "
For Tiritò Pasquale, owner of Jacaranda Resort, cleanliness and facilities are priorities that would help a lot. "The coastal road connecting pr Malindi to Watamu falls in view of the necessary infrastructure mentioned by Jones - specifies the Roman businessman - and would retrain all a wonderful coastal slope, which runs from Mayungu to Jacaranda Bay, where the beaches are cleaner and the facilities are not obsolete. But the international airport is a key step to keep alive the tourism Kilifi County. "
