Avani Gaborone Resort and Casino has just completed their R103 million renovation- and it looks amazing. 

The renovation was done to introduce AVANI’s signature design hallmarks to  156 guest rooms and public spaces including the main entrance and porte cochere. 

According to a press release by the Avani group, the aim of the renovation is to showcase a new contemporary design and technological enhancements for a modern, functional and relaxing experience. 

Riaan van Rooyen, newly appointed General Manager of AVANI Gaborone Resort & Casino said Avani Hotels and Resorts was committed to cementing relationships with the communities of Gaborone and Botswana. 

"AVANI Gaborone is now the capital’s leading leisure and business resort. It is s ituated in the heart of Gaborone’s business district, home to The Botswana Stock Exchange, Debswana Diamond Company, the Southern African Development Community headquarters and financial institutions, AVANI Gaborone is ideally located for leisure and business travellers and local residents’ seeking great food and a variety of entertainment options," he said. 
The layout of the guest bedrooms and bathrooms has been redesigned to ensure the best use of space. The design is functional, modern and comfortable. 

Room features and amenities include free WiFi, dedicated work station with media hub, LCD television with satellite news, sport and movie channels and a rain shower. 

The conference centre offers an impressive setting for business and social events in Gaborone with a main conference room accommodating up to 500 guests and five private Seminar Rooms will enrich any meeting.  

“We saw the renovation as an opportunity to upskill staff and expand their capabilities. All staff were encouraged to participate in cross-training across departments in order to provide a seamless service.  The service and services offered in a predominantly business hotel differ in significant ways from the priorities in a leisure hotel. 

"Efficiency and a sense of urgency is very important to a business traveller who is generally on the go from very early in the morning. With this in mind we open breakfast earlier, offer free WiFi everywhere, ensure a quick check-in and check-out service and our concierge staff are adept at providing quick transfers, shopping tips and advice on restaurants in the area,” Van Rooyen added.
