KZN hotel group expands portfolio


ANEW Hotels & Resorts has partnered with the Fortis brand and has concluded an agreement to acquire an additional six properties.

This brings the ANEW stable to 10 hotels and resorts countrywide. The new additions – Hunters Rest in Rustenburg, Highveld and Witbank Hotels in Emalahleni, the Capital and Manor Hatfield Hotels in Pretoria and Malaga Hotel in Sycamore – join the Hilton Hotel, Hluhluwe Hotel, Hluhluwe Lodge and Ingeli Forest Lodge.

“Over the past two years, we have been actively looking for additional properties to expand the ANEW footprint and we were determined to find the right properties and partners in order to grow the brand effectively and sustainably,” said Clinton Armour, CEO of ANEW. “The Fortis culture is very similar to that of ANEW and the synergies of culture, people and technology, made the team-up a natural fit.”
