Mombasa, February 2, 2019
Formal event at Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort
" The décor in the banqueting room was awesome "

For this Gala event Bailliage members and their guests were hosted by the prestigious Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa and Hotel situated north of Mombasa on one of East Africa’s most stunning Indian Ocean beaches. Palatial grounds, Arabic architecture and top-class facilities make it a wonderful place to stay on the Kenyan coast.

The Resort’s General Manager, Maître Hôtelier Siddharth Sathe, went out of his way to ensure a perfect setting for an elegant formal dinner.
