BON Hotels adds Nelspruit property to its portfolio 


BON Hotels has announced the recent addition of Destiny Lodge Nelspruit by BON Hotels to its portfolio.

The property is a 35-roomed four-star hotel.

This concludes the group’s second South African transaction in a matter of months, the group’s second property located in the Kruger Park region, and BON’s sixth acquisition of 2018.

The hotel is located five minutes from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.

The government tourism segment – local and international conferencing – will form part of the group’s immediate and future strategy, as the property commences with a refurbishment of the current offering.

The improvements include more than doubling the room capacity by adding 35 new rooms and a comprehensive refurbishment of the entire property.

In addition to the immediate upgrades, plans are confirmed for the erection of a first-rate international convention centre.

Construction of the convention centre will commence mid-2018 and will have a capacity of 1,500 delegates.
