AFRICA Albida Tourism (AAT) has completed the $1 million refurbishment exercise at its flagship property, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, as the hospitality group renews its tourism products.
AAT on Tuesday said the completion of the upgrade at the 72-roomed property was a culmination of extensive work done over three months.
“. . . the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is comfortably within the final few days of completion where we have been completely redesigning and refashioning all 72 standard rooms, deluxe rooms and suites,” AAT operations manager Brian Gardiner said.
“We have simultaneously been reviewing our entire service delivery and guest cares throughout the resort and with the combination of the newly-refashioned rooms are confident this will translate into a delivery of experience for our guests well beyond their expectations.”
Gardiner said the increased room quality provides a perfect match now to the newly-introduced and exquisite Victoria Falls Safari Suites, and premium Victoria Falls Safari Club and this puts AAT in a very strong position to deliver the highest quality product in the area.
AAT said Victoria Falls Safari Lodge now boasts of new and modern rooms with newly-installed protective insect screens and sliding glass doors opening into a bright and spacious interior.
“All the rooms have private balconies with superb views of spectacular African sunsets and the bushveld. Cornwall International Interiors have introduced earthy colours, with rich red cushions and soft furnishing which complement the African-themed elegant ambience.
AAT property portfolio includes the Gold Crown Resort Condominium International, Lokuthula Lodges, the five-star Victoria Falls Safari Club, Victoria Falls Safari Suites and the Ngoma Safari Lodge located in Chobe, Botswana.
Since the introduction of the multicurrency regime in 2009, hospitality groups have been undertaking refurbishments.
Government has also helped the sector by allowing it to import equipment duty free.
