We are excited to share with you the news that Belmond Eagle Island Lodge has been selected to undergo a complete refurbishment and upgrade in 2015! This is a valuable and essential investment by Belmond in the lodge which promises to deliver even greater safari experiences when completed.
The closure of the lodge will commence on the 5th January 2015 with the expected opening date being the 1st November 2015.
An exclusive safari experience, Belmond Eagle Island Lodge features 11 luxury accommodations and a Private Suite, each of which will feature a more spacious design and layout when the lodge reopens. Flooded with daylight and with delta views, the new luxury rooms will be elegant and light in design with warm colours such as dusty gold, bright yellows and oranges added carefully throughout reflecting the natural location. Facilities will include separate day beds, walk-in wardrobes and indoor and outdoor showers.
The public areas of lodge are also being totally renovated and will include the creation of a more roomy reception area, a new restaurant with inside and outside dining, a new swimming pool, and a new lounge area with central bar and library. A new roof will span across the entire space allowing guests to move freely between the different areas should it rain. Combining contemporary technology with the utmost comfort, design elements will make the most of Belmond Eagle Island Lodge’s 270 degree views of the delta and draw on Botswana’s vibrant colours and patterns for inspiration mixing local art with international pieces.
