We have a few things to report, not least of which is that we recently received our Booking.com Guest Review Award – with a resounding average of 9.6 out of 10! Thank you so much to everyone who has written us such lovely reviews – both on Booking.com and also TripAdvisor, where we continue to retain our Five Star rating.
The other exciting thing to tell you about booking-wise is that we are now also on Expedia – allowing our guests even more options for booking, paying and reviewing our beautiful guest lodge. Find out more on that here. Since going live in April we’ve already had bookings from as far afield as China!
Closer to home, one recent development in the local area which is definitely worth mentioning is the opening of the Mall of Africa just 15 minutes away from Aloe Lane, giving our guests an exciting new alternative to Sandton City complex.
At over 130,000 square meters it is Africa’s largest single phase shopping mall – and is part of the ambitious ‘Waterfall’ city development. The Mall of Africa has over 300 shops, including seven flagship stores, covering both local and international brands. It is split into five areas known as Forest Walk, Desert Court, Great Lakes, Crystal Court and Oleum Court.
The international brands include well-known names such as Paul Smith, Adidas, Nine West, Swarovski, Geri Webber, Timberland, Bobbi Brown, Lacoste, Armani, H&M, River Island, Pandora, Hugo Boss, Guess, Jo Malone, Hackett of London, Hamleys and Versace. Definitely something for everyone . . .
Lastly, we also wanted to let you know that we are in the process of launching an Instagram page – more details on that soon!
