The Tourist Hotel Bungoma was started in 1969 by the Bungoma Teachers Co-operative Society (BUTICO) when Bungoma was a single District, through member’s contributions.

The Hotel has undergone several Management changes and was actually not very lucky in establishing itself as a marked leader and when new hotels started coming up in Bungoma Town, it found itself elbowed to the periphery and it ended up closing.

In the meantime, unfortunately, the teachers did not benefit anything from their investment. The leadership of BUTICO was forced to look for a strategic partner and that is when they found Bonito Hotels Ltd in 2014 who agreed to lease the Hotel and carry out a re-development to include a Swimming Pool, Conference facilities, Private dining room, a Gym, Sauna, Massage, Private rooms, a garden among other facilities. A completely new Night Club (Club Oval) has been put up.

It will be the first time that the teachers will now enjoy their Investment from the proceeds of rent.

The hotel is bringing to Bungoma County unparalleled Catering and dining services that will see the introduction of Vegetarian Cuisine with a completely separate Kitchen for the purpose. It is also introducing Halal cooking for the Muslim Customers whose Kitchen is also separate.

Bungoma Town is fast establishing itself as the entertainment hub of the Western Region. Tourist Hotel Bungoma has not been left behind. Club Oval has just opened the doors to the Public and was operating at Full Capacity during the entire festive season. The Club goes into the History of Bungoma town as the first to open the year with fireworks at midnight on 31stDecember 2014

The Club oval design is unique. It is Oval in shape and accommodates two floors. The floor houses the Underworld with a Bar, a dance floor with facilities for a live Band, and a state of the art Discotheque with an inviting lighting and sound system.

In-spite of the more superior facilities being offered at Club Oval the Developers took a decision not to charge entrance fees and also maintained the same Bar prices as are found in other Bars in Bungoma town.

The second floor holds the VIP Lounge suitable for senior members who wish to enjoy the facilities of a club at a distance. This floor also houses a sportsmen section where patrons can watch games on television including the English Premier League as they enjoy their drink.


The roof top at the Club will become the most popular venue for Cocktail parties, Sundowner and special occasions for Companies and their employees.
