Durban - The Protea Hotel Hluhluwe & Safaris attracts both foreign and domestic tourists, including large numbers of Americans, Germans and French.
It is located on the tropical North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal in an area filled to capacity with unique cultural and adventure experiences.
Protea Hotels has announced that parts of the hotel are currently undergoing a soft refurbishment geared to enhance its rustic bush style.
“This new refurbishment will complement previous upgrades to the rooms done three years ago,” explains Danny Bryer, Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue Management at Protea Hotels. “This time our focus is on the public areas of the hotel - the restaurant and reception area.
“The refurbishment will have no impact on the guest experience or on these facilities, which will remain open to guests throughout; the work will be completed at the end of July.”
Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve is a haven for animal-lovers looking for a safari experience in one of the hotel’s own open game drive vehicles.
Guests can interact with elephants and cheetahs, take a trip to a reptile park, and visit the beaches and marine life of Cape Vidal and Sodwana Bay or take a boat cruise in St Lucia.
Then there are also cultural treats, such as traditional Zulu dance shows and visits to cultural villages. The stay is enriched by an outdoor dinner under the African sky in the Zulu Boma.
Offering both 3-star hotel accommodation and superior deluxe, a more luxurious option in the form of a 3-bedroomed self-catering thatched lodge, The Protea Hotel Hluhluwe & Safaris is a destination for a great winter’s break.
