1. Re: Plaza Hotel


The North coast has been quiet for a few years now, it's not just the financial crisis, it never really recovered from the post election violence and the hiatus in charter flights that followed it, since then Thomas Cook stopped its own flights, Thomson stopped its Manchester flights. then we had the publicity of the Lamu kidnappings and murder and the associated advisories and warnings. Then Monarch pulled out of the route. Then we had the grenade attacks and more advisories, and recently the UK tour companies dropped North coast hotels from mainstream brochures because they are too expensive. Most now only carry the South Coast hotels in their standard brochures. North Coast hotels seem to get most of their custom from Europeans, Asians and locals these days.

As for the Plaza I presume you mean the Plaza Beach, as far as I'm aware it's still in business, I haven't heard of any of the Bamburi hotels closing
