Sunbird Tourism PLC signs management contract with Kara O'Mula Resorts Limited

Posted 18 July 2019

Sunbird Tourism plc, Malawi's leading hospitality provider is proud to welcome onboard Kara O' Mula, under management contract. Under this new partnership, Sunbird Tourism plc will now be responsible for the management of day to day operations of one of Malawi's most revered mountain resorts. Kara O' Mula is an eco-tourism lodge located at the foot of Mulanje Mountain and surrounded by beautiful forestry. It offers a relaxing adventure experience that will now be complimented by Sunbird's unique, excellent and personalized service.

As part of our brand expansion, Sunbird Tourism plc also offers hospitality management services to hotel investors and owners on management contract. This model is a common and valued practice among the leading hotel brands worldwide where Sunbird Tourism plc does not own brick and mortar but rather offers expertise, experience and thorough knowledge of the market and industry through management contract. Kara O' Mula, now to be known as Sunbird Kara O' Mula will have the distinct advantage of leveraging Sunbird Tourism plc's significant investment in people, products, processes and marketing in order to expand and grow the business. Currently, Sunbird Kara O' Mula is undergoing an extensive product upgrade to enhance its product and guest experience. The product and service improvement will in turn elevate the demand for the destination which for a long time has had significant potential that is yet to be realized considering that Mulanje Mountain is one of the major tourist attractions within the region. Sunbird Kara O' Mula becomes the second property after Thawale Game Lodge which was signed under management contract in 2017, currently known as Sunbird Thawale and owned by African Parks Limited in Majete Game Reserve. 

We are thrilled and excited to welcome Sunbird Kara O' Mula to the Sunbird Hotels & Resorts family and we look forward to creating wonderful and memorable experiences through our diverse Resorts powered by excellent and personalized service, as we continue to grow the Sunbird footprint.

Sunbird Hotels and Resorts is Malawi's leading hotel chain with eight properties including four city hotels in all three regions of Malawi, two popular beach resorts along Lake Malawi, an iconic mountain Resort in the former capital city of Zomba and a game lodge in a popular big 5 wild life reserve, Majete.
