Kievits Kroon awarded Best Luxury Country Hotel in Africa

2018 Hotel Awards Winner LogoKievits Kroon Faircity Hotel just outside Pretoria has been awarded Best Luxury Country Hotel in Africa by the 2018 World Luxury Hotel Awards.

The award is a result of votes received from guests and industry consultants and was announced at a spectacular gala celebration hosted at the Ayana Resort & Spa, Bali, Indonesia on 10 November.

Over 300,000 international travellers vote each year during a four-week period to select the winners. Luxury hotels have the opportunity to participate in the World Luxury Hotel Awards by entering into categories that showcase their unique selling points and destinations.

Awards were bestowed on luxury properties which excelled within their service delivery areas on a country, regional, continent or global basis.

Each hotel is looked at in detail concerning votes received during the annual voting phase, overall guest satisfaction from online reviews, facilities at the hotel, design, location, and branding.

Michael Hunter-Smith, Group Marketing Director for the World Luxury Hotel Awards said: “We congratulate all our winners for the 2018 Award Year who, through their tireless efforts and endless passion to elevate their guests experience, have received this honour. True luxury is not easily attained, it takes a team of highly efficient and dedicated staff willing to go the extra mile and stop at nothing to ensure that every guest feels cared for and no challenged not solved. This is the definition of luxury, this is what makes the winners shine at the World Luxury Hotel Awards event.”

Kievits Kroon is set on 16ha of lush manicured lawns and is an oasis of beautiful trees and landscaped gardens which, together with the Cape Dutch-style buildings, have earned it the title “The Winelands in Gauteng”.

The hotel has 142 rooms, a Winelands Spa with outstanding thermae facilities, a gourmet restaurant, Granita, a library bar, an outdoor lap pool and pool bar, a buffet restaurant, a conference centre and a number of functions venues.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, flat screen televisions with selected DStv channels, tea and coffee making facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, quality linen, and a bar fridge. There is a nightly turn-down service.

Kievits Kroon is well-known for its excellent service and friendly, accommodating staff, and General Manager Francois Stremmelaar believes that this is what sets it apart.

“It’s a great honour to be recognised with such a prestigious award,” said Stremmelaar, “particularly as this is our seventh consecutive award from World Luxury Hotel Awards. It tells us that we are doing something right and encourages us to keep raising the bar.”
