Swiss International, in partnership with the Foundation Enterprise Programme (FEP) Holdings, is to construct a four-star resort along the Nairobi Nyeri Highway, 100km from Nairobi. 

The Swiss International Sagana Resort and Conference Centre could boost leisure and conference tourism in the Mount Kenya region when the hotel opens later this year.

The 146-room property will have a modern conferencing facility with a capacity for 800 people and is also expected to have two boardrooms and two meeting rooms with a combined capacity of 80 people.

Speaking during the signing of a management contract with Swiss International, FEP Chairman, James Kaguchia, said FEP was excited to partner with Swiss International, which has experience in the hospitality sector.
