Chinese entrepreneurs have invested US$150 million to build the Hotel Golden Peacock, a tourism-oriented infrastructure situated by the beach in Beira, capital of Mozambique’s Sofala province, the Maputo-based daily Notícias reports.
The five-star hotel includes a casino, disco and conference rooms, along with artificial lakes and guest support structures on the beach.
At the opening, attended by China’s ambassador in Mozambique, Li Chunhua, Sofala province tourism director Aníbal Nhampossa said the start of the hotel’s operations was one more step toward ensuring that tourism plays a strategic role in promoting socio-economic development.
“We are convinced that the location of the Hotel Golden Peacock will make many sun and beach enthusiasts visit this province and enjoy the variety of tourism products we offer,” Nhampossa said. (macauhub)
