Cresta Hotels expand their “safari property” portfolio with the opening of Cresta Maun, writes Marc Reading of Talking Stick Marketing.
The opening in June of the new 83 room Cresta Maun Hotel on the banks of the Thamalakane River sees Cresta Hotels being able to offer clients traditional hotel accommodation in two iconic areas of Botswana, Maun the gateway to the Okavango Delta and Kasane for the Chobe National Park.
“Our aim with both properties is to offer clients a modern hotel experience when arriving or leaving these gateway towns, we believe that our properties complement a traditional lodge stay” says Glenn Stuchbury MD of Cresta Hospitality.
Maun is the tourism capital of Botswana and the new Cresta Maun Hotel has a contemporary look with a design that fuses all that is modern with the feel of Africa.
To reduce the hotel’s footprint on the ecologically sensitive environment of the Okavango Delta, many green design principles were put into place by architect Paul Munnik, whose design processes emphasise the importance of energy-efficient and economic solutions in building technology in the Botswana climate. All of the hotel’s water is drawn directly from well points in the river and then purified to a very high standard on site.
A dedicated shuttle conveniently meets all inbound international and domestic flights, and an onsite activity desk allows you to easily book a whole host of activities into the Delta and beyond.
