In an unprecedented move, the Radisson Hotel Group has broadened its horizons into Africa’s wild heartland, unveiling the Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit. This marks the group’s pioneering venture into the safari lodge domain, providing a sumptuous gateway to Africa’s untamed beauty and majestic wildlife. Located in the verdant expanse of Limpopo province, the hotel is a stone’s throw from the iconic Kruger National Park and the breathtaking Blyde River Canyon, setting a new standard in luxury wilderness experiences.
The Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit is a testament to the Radisson Hotel Group’s ambitious vision, being the 11th establishment to grace South Africa’s soil under its banner. Positioned merely 2km from Hoedspruit and a brief 20-minute journey from Eastgate Airport, the hotel is tranquil amidst the sprawling savannahs, offering direct access to some of the globe’s most coveted natural wonders.
The hotel itself is a marvel of design, merging contemporary Scandinavian aesthetics with the rich palette of the African landscape. The 138 rooms and suites are masterpieces of relaxation, adorned with natural materials, wooden accents, and a colour scheme that echoes the earthy hues of the surrounding wilderness. This design philosophy extends to the outdoor spaces, where guests can revel in the majesty of the Drakensberg mountains, the highest range in Southern Africa, from the comfort of their private pools or while dining al fresco.
Culinary journeys at the Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit are as diverse as the landscape it inhabits. With three distinct restaurants, guests can savour South African and Lebanese flavours at Mirage, enjoy a medley of Mediterranean and international dishes at Pegasus, or partake in traditional African fare under the stars at Boma. Each dining experience is crafted to complement the natural beauty and serene atmosphere of the hotel’s unique location.
Tim Cordon, COO for the Middle East, Africa, and SEAP at Radisson Hotel Group, expressed his enthusiasm for the opening, stating, “The Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit not only marks our 11th hotel in South Africa but also completes our Golden Triangle Safari offering. This is a testament to our commitment to providing unparalleled experiences in some of the most breathtaking locations on earth.”
Charles McCarthy, the hotel’s General Manager, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing the blend of Radisson’s signature Yes I Can! service philosophy with the unmatched setting of the safari hotel. The aim is to offer an unforgettable stay, whether guests seek adventure, relaxation, or a distinctive venue for events and meetings.
Beyond the indulgent accommodations and gastronomic delights, the Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit is a wellness sanctuary. The Amani Spa, with its panoramic views of the grasslands, offers a range of rejuvenating treatments in a serene setting. Meanwhile, the state-of-the-art fitness centre ensures that guests can maintain their wellness routines amidst the tranquillity of the African bush.
The hotel also caters to corporate and social gatherings with versatile meeting and event spaces that accommodate up to 200 guests. These venues and the hotel’s breathtaking natural backdrop provide an unparalleled setting for memorable events.
In the heart of South Africa’s wilderness, the Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit emerges as a beacon of luxury, adventure, and serene escapism. It’s not just a hotel; it’s a bridge to Africa’s profound beauty and untamed spirit, promising an experience that transcends the ordinary.
