As the countdown to the end of the year takes shape, Sheraton Kampala Hotel yesterday unveiled its festive season event line up which will run from December 6th, 2020 to 1st January 2020.
Speaking at the launch of the festivities, the Hotel’s General Manager, Jean Philippe Bittencourt said,
“Sheraton Kampala Hotel has been the home of festive celebrations in Uganda for over a decade and we are not about to stop, especially given the tremulous year this has been. Now is a time for us to revive the festive cheer, to remind our customers of the reason to live, giving thanks for the life we have with our friends and families at Sheraton Kampala Hotel in a clean and safe environment,” adding that;
“As per our current operating procedures, we have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection at highly frequented areas and regularly touched surfaces such as counters at front desk, elevators, public bathrooms, room keys and gym equipment to minimize risk of the spread of COVID 19. We urge every person that visits Sheraton Kampala Hotel to wear their masks while on our premises,” said Mr. Bittencourt
This year’s Hotel festive activities will kick off with Christmas carols presented by the talented Imani Milele Choir on December 6th, 2020 and Christ the King Choir on December 13th, 2020 during the Tots n Xmas Kids party. The kids will be entertained with lots of activities ranging from bouncing castles, face painting, water slides and more.
Mr. Bittencourt noted that, “Children are the center of Christmas celebrations. The Christmas spirit has lived on for generations because it’s ingrained in us from a young age. We will have a children’s corner that will have plenty of entertainment for them ranging from water slides, jumping castles, face painting and Santa engagements on Christmas Day. The parents and guardians will be able to enjoy their time dining and watching the Christmas carols as our professional child handlers manage the children on Christmas Day.”
