AFRICAN Sun Limited (ASL) says its occupancy levels recorded a 30 percent growth across all segments on the back of significant easing of Covid-19 related lockdowns both locally and abroad.
Presenting a trading update for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, African Sun’s company secretary Venon Musimbe said there was a remarkable improvement in occupancies.
“City hotels including the Troutbeck Resort recorded a 56 percent increase in occupancies compared to 24 percent recorded in 2021. The resort hotels, which have not fully recovered from the impact of Covid-19, achieved an occupancy level of 21 percent compared to five percent recorded during a similar period last year,” he said.
At the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the hotel group saw revenues plummeting by 78 percent.
