Kruger Shalati has been named one of this year’s winners in Travel + Leisure’s It List.
The It List spotlights hotels and resorts that have made the biggest impression on Travel + Leisure’s editors and contributors. It’s no mean feat as we were selected out of hundreds of properties across the globe and were selected as one of just 71 that makes the cut, and the only South African property on the 2021 list!
The past year has been a challenging year for the industry worldwide, so to make such an impression while opening a product of this nature in a global tourism crisis where core markets are not travelling, makes their inclusion on the list super special.
‘We’re confident that our global reach will gain even more traction after this prestigious accolade, as well as the feature on the Train on the Bridge The UK Financial Times also released today, and not forgetting the spread in the UK Daily Mail last month, so please let us know if you have enquiries,’ said Kruger Shalati. ‘Our passionate staff has been welcoming a steady flow of guests and we continue to receive amazing feedback.’
‘After, blood, sweat, and many more tears than I would like to admit, Kruger Shalati is not only a unique and fast becoming iconic destination but also a work of art. The design detail and precise engineering are truly remarkable. We are ecstatic about the news that we have been recognised on a prestigious platform such as Travel + Leisure, which is one of the most highly regarded travel news publications in the world, for us to make it onto their exclusive list – especially as the only South African product – is exceptional and we are extremely proud of the project team and all our incredible staff who made this a reality,’ said the executive manager of brand, sales, and marketing Judiet Barnes.
‘With tourism on its knees, we are relying on South Africans to help support the sector during this crucial time. Our amazing country offers something for all and with all the unique properties now available at great prices it really is the best time to take full advantage thereof. When it comes to uniqueness – Well… Kruger Shalati is amongst some of the finest and most anticipated.
We understand the importance of matching great service to all guests that visit this elevated sanctuary and we acknowledge that regardless of who arrives – our full attention is placed on all our guests, whether they come directly or from an agency. We are well-positioned with many years of hospitality experience to provide world-class experiences to your guests in the new Shalati way! COVID safe travel protocols are in the heart of what we do and rest assured – you will find what you expected to find and lots more!’ said the executive manager of operations Gavin Ferreira.
