IN a major boost for showbiz and tourism for entertainment-starved Mutare, Skyview hotel has established an outdoor entertainment facility that would see fun lovers mix and dine while providing artistes a platform to perform.
The hotel, situated uptown, recently erected a gazebo and braai area with traditional appeal and offers a range of cuisine from traditional, western and a variety of dishes. The hotel has previously hosted comic celebrity, Tyra Chikocho, popularly known as Madam Boss as well as jazz sensation Steve Chikotie.
The hotel’s marketing manageress, Tiny Gango said, “Besides boasting of a conference centre that offers fully inclusive packages suited for banqueting, seminars, exhibitions, workshops, company functions, cocktails, parties, weddings, less exposed artistes, fun lovers and socialites in Mutare will have something to cheer about as the entertainment place will also offer artistes an opportunity to perform and exhibit their talents,” she said.
Among other events, the hotel recently hosted a banquet to commemorate the International Women’s Day at the hotel where the hotel’s finance director, Mrs Rachael Mugwagwa, urged more than 20 female staffers to continue working towards raising their self-worth and claim their role as critical players in the socio-economic development of the country.
“Women should always aim to raise their self worth, be determined and resolute as they are key players both in the economy, country and organisations. Self worth propels us to work harder and assume roles that long back were perceived as men. Self worth reminds us that we are not second class citizens but important players in the development of a nation,” she said.
The hotel, which has managed to re-brand itself into one of the decorated tourism facilities in the eastern highlands, celebrated the day which was commemorated worldwide in style.
