Italian billionaire and investor in the soon to be complete Sh500 million Billionaires Club in Malindi Mr Flavio Briatore stresses a point during a press conference at the Club as Malindi MP Mr Gedion Mung’aro listens on 11 November 2012.
“This resort will change the face and image of tourism for not only Malindi, but Kenya at large. We did not want to make something ordinary, but something out of the ordinary.
“We have similar resorts in France and other parts of Europe including in Sardinia Island near Italy and not any other in Africa,” he said in the company of Malindi member of Parliament Mr Gideon Mung’aro.
The billionaire, who is on a working holiday in Malindi and staying at his exclusive Lion in the Sun residence with his close friend, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, said the new resort would have 24 private, exclusive apartments.
Mr Briatore challenged the local and national governments to put their house in order by improving security, cleaning the environment and improving the infrastructure.
