“Recently at Sunbird Waterfront and Sunbird Livingstonia, we opened doors to the lake facing restaurant facility. The restaurant facility is positioned to improve the dining experience for the two resorts, further complimenting the overall resort experience.

“In our quest to ensure a diverse customer experience all under the Sunbird brand, we will soon be breaking ground for an Eco lodge construction in Majete Game reserve, this will target the discerning traveller looking to experience nature and game tourism while accommodating business and pleasure,” he said.

He added that despite being hit by Covid 19 pandemic, the company made a point to maintain the standards.

Munthali said the opening up of global travel and easing of coronavirus restrictions by the government has aided them on a positive recovery path.

During the AGM, shareholders also affirmed the retirement of Board Chairman George Patridge and the appointment of new directors MacDonald Mafuta Mwale, George Mnesa and Moreen Mbeye.
