Kerzner International is a developer and operator of destination resorts, casinos and luxury resorts. The group has its roots in South Africa, but the bulk of its growth and development have taken place away from the African continent, save for three of its existing 10 properties. Now it appears to be looking closely, once again, at Africa, with Kerzner International set to expose more of the African continent to its brand of luxury hospitality, including a comprehensive and unique events offering.
Kerzner International is the custodian of three distinct luxury brands: Atlantis, One&Only and Mazagan. All of the group’s resorts are located in the world’s most eye-catching locations, including the Indian Ocean, South Africa, Dubai, the Bahamas, Mexico, and Morocco. Soon that attractive list will include a few new destinations.
Over the last 18 months Kerzner International has announced the development of four new resorts – One&Only properties in Montenegro, Jeddah and Sanya in China, as well as an Atlantis in Sanya. Kerzner International will also be assuming management of the iconic Hayman Resort on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and it will be reborn as One&Only Hayman Island in July.
What the existing and future Kerzner International properties offer is the perfect back-drop to any event. The group’s approach to hospitality is unique – it works with its guests to create their own bespoke experiences.
