Preferred Hotels adds to SA portfolio


Preferred Hotels & Resorts added 16 new member hotels to its global portfolio between July and September, two of which are in South Africa.

The President Hotel in Cape Town has 349 luxury guestrooms and apartments, and is now Preferred’s largest hotel in Africa.

Set in the exclusive Bantry Bay neighbourhood, between the Lion’s Head mountain range and coastline, the President Hotel offers views across the Atlantic Ocean and is a stone’s throw from the V&A Waterfront.

The Last Word Kitara is located in the Klaserie Nature Reserve, inside the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga.

The lodge has been extensively refurbished to create six camp-style luxury suites built in stone with savannah views across the river – a popular spot for elephants and other residents to drink and bathe.
