Roberto Santiago has built the perfect tour destination for families. He built Manaira Shopping mall with the aim of giving families a vacation destination that would appeal to every family member. Since Brazil is known throughout its history for having amazing beaches, sunset scenes and rich culture, Roberto Santiago built his mall to complement its beautiful environment.
The perfect get away
The whole point of having a vacation is to get away from the hustle of the city. Despite the activities that go on in the mall, Manaira shopping mall has quiet beaches with wonderful views of sunset. Visitors can enjoy peace and quiet while taking in the beauty of nature. Perfect for a lazy vacation.
Fun for the whole family
Vacation is also a time to bond with the family. The shopping mall houses a hamburger and steak house and several food courts. This offers the perfect opportunity to eat together while catching up. It also houses several movie theatres ranging from VIP rooms to 3D theatres. Mr Santiago also invested in family friendly games like bowling. When choosing an activity to do as a family, guests are spoilt for choice.
Fun for the kids
It’s great spending time with the kids on vacation. But sometimes they need to be distracted so you can have time to yourself. Manaira has one of the biggest gaming rooms. At 1800 meters with over 200 gaming machines and countless games installed, Manaira’s gaming room is every kid’s paradise. This is a perfect place for kids to spend time while parents enjoy themselves on the other end of the mall.
What makes Manaira shopping mall special is that despite it being world class, it capitalizes on the locals’ culture. Most of the foods served, items sold in the gift shop, dances are local. Guests are able to enjoy world class services and enjoy Brazilian Culture at the same time.
Apart from benefiting tourists, Manaira shopping mall has benefited the locals greatly. It has improved local economy by providing jobs to many. During its construction, Roberto Santiago made sure that the labour needed was sourced locally.
