New Websites – Elewana Collection and SkySafari Celebrate New Online Presence

skysafari websiteIn October last year the Elewana Collection of Lodges, Camps and Hotels went ‘live’ online to show our 'new look’ corporate identity. Since that time we are delighted to report that the site has continued to attract an increasing volume of visitors and readers from the four corners of the globe.

And now SkySafari – The Ultimate African Adventure – has now gone live with a totally new website, packed with information and images about each of the camps and lodges that feature in the 7 day SkySafari round trip. Full of interesting facts about Tanzania, the National Parks and the wildlife that you will see on what will be the journey of a lifetime, this website is fast growing in popularity with consumers and trade alike.

Director of Communications, Jason Barry, explains.

SkySafari delivers the ultimate safari experience to each and everyone who visits Tanzania. Connecting four of the six Elewana Collection Lodges, Camps and Hotels, via its executive class Cessna Grand Caravan, SkySafari is fast becoming the safari circuit for the discerning traveller.

The all-new SkySafari website is packed full of relevant and interesting information and we hope that as the site grows skysafari.com becomes an excellent resource for anyone wishing to know more about Tanzania.’

AfroChic Diani Beach Recognised by TripAdvisor Award

afrochic tripadvisor accoladeAfroChic Diani, our boutique hotel that lies on the southern Kenyan shoreline on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, has been identified by TripAdvisor as the Top Hotel in East Africa thanks to the readers' comments on the review sharing website.

The actual ranking according to TripAdvisor for Afrochic Diani Beach is 'Top 25 Hotel in Africa',
'No. 1 Hotel in East Africa' and 'No. 1 Hotel in Diani'.

AfroChic Diani is the perfect getaway for the discerning traveler who wishes to simply ‘flop and drop’ and enjoy the spectacular views of exotic and ancient dhows in full sail. This exclusively intimate hotel - with only 10 guest rooms each with their own en-suite bathroom, balcony and sunloungers - is singularly personable and highly individual. It is this personable service, coupled with an excellent kitchen and its highly desirable location that has led Trip Advisor recognizing AfroChic’s qualities.

Stephan Meves, General Manager of AfroChic is naturally delighted.

We are thrilled to have been recognized by Trip Advisor especially because the recognition is based on our guests comments and recommendations. We are delighted that we have received such high regard with our previous guests and we will continue to strive to become the accommodation of choice in what is simply the most beautiful coastline in Kenya if not the world.

Kilindi Zanzibar Hits the Front Cover of Condé Nast’s Traveller Magazine

traveller magazine coverKilindi Zanzibar, known to many as the perfect romantic getaway on the paradise spice island of Zanzibar, has just received the accolade of appearing on the front cover of Condé Nast’s international publication ‘Traveller’, March 2012 issue.

The image shown is of the view from one of the private Pavilions overlooking the sparkling Indian Ocean waters at Kilindi Zanzibar.

Inside ‘Traveller’ Magazine, there is an in depth review of several boutique properties in Zanzibar, including a feature on Kilindi itself. Lisa Grainger, the Condé Nast journalist who visited the property describes at length the ‘delicious meals’ and the ‘motivated, smiley and friendly’ staff, as well as the mix of contemporary and traditional Zanzibari furnishings creating an eclectic and original décor.

Kilindi is indeed a unique hotel, a true retreat for those who wish to ‘kick-back’ and relax. As highlighted in the ‘Traveller’ this property is a blend of minimalism and superior service. Each Pavilion room has its own dedicated Pavilion Attendant helping each couple to define their experience as they want, when they want. For example, couples can enjoy dining anywhere they choose at Kilindi– their room, the main house, even a table set on the beach at sunset.

But Kilindi is far more than a boutique hotel. It gives more by going back to the basics of hospitality. That is why Kilindi Zanzibar is now one of the most sought after boutique hotels in the Indian Ocean.
