The hospitality concern had closed its Bulawayo unit in February to pave way for comprehensive refurbishment works. In an update, Rainbow Tourism Group operations director, Mr Tichawona Hwingwiri, said the revamping exercise was not just limited to plumbing but also covered a wide range of aspects at the hotel.
He said that the scope of the refurbishment was not limited to the plumbing alone but also covered the overhaul of the hotel’s entire guest in-room bathrooms, the replacement of the critical in-room fixtures and windows at an investment of US$2.5 million. The plumbing technology which we have installed at Bulawayo Rainbow Hotel is called Mepla (metal and plastic).
Mr Hwingwiri said as the hotel was closed for the past two months, this gave them an opportunity to repaint both the hotel’s interior and exterior. This is the first major plumbing refurbishment of this hotel since it was built in 1952. They have modernised their in-room guest bathrooms, which have been completely over-hauled and redesigned with new modern fixtures to deliver an enhanced bathroom experience.
