Malawi’s first hot spring resort, Ymca (formerly called Yomagoron), opened its doors in 2013, with the intention of providing a respite from the scorching heat of the capital city of Kampala.
The resort’s owner, the Ymcsa Nyama-Kuny, told CNN’s “Inside Out” that the hot springs, which offer a range of activities ranging from water skiing and swimming to music and art, was the perfect setting for a village celebration.
“The hot springs are very beautiful, and you can even see the sunrise,” he said.
“You can see the clouds, the trees and everything.
And the people, who come here are very happy.
They come here for a reason.”
Ymcias resort has attracted some of the most iconic images of Malawian history, including the famous statue of the man who founded the country and a statue of a woman who helped build the country’s first hospital.
According to Ymcia Village’s website, the village is home to many indigenous tribes and the people of Ymco are known for their love of the water.
They are known as the “hot springs of Africa,” according to a 2014 report from CNN.
According a 2015 study published by the Malawi Institute of Public Policy, the majority of Malians still live in villages that are predominantly agricultural, and about one in five live in areas with no natural resources.
Some believe that Ymccas resort is helping to protect the country from further degradation due to climate change.
“We need to build a future where the rainforests will be in place and where our water resources will be developed so that we can protect the water resources of our country,” Malawi Prime Minister Mokule Mbalula said at a press conference on Monday.
“But this is not only about Ymcus, we also need to do something for the Ycmsa people.
It is our duty to protect their future.”
The resort was named the “National Capital of the Year” by the National Association of Towns and Towns, but has since been shut down.
However, the resort’s owners say they are still planning to reopen in 2019, when they plan to move their operations to another location.
“There’s no question that it is a blessing for us to have the water, to have our people, to our heritage, to the Ymcas people,” Ymcesa Nyamas spokesperson Dina Kwelela told CNN.
“I think that the Ycmacs people are very excited about this.”
