Orion Hotels & Resorts has finalised the purchase of the Selborne Hotel, Spa & Golf Estate in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.It is the third purchase for the company in 2010 and is the 11th South African hotel in its portfolio, reports Travelwires.com.
First opened in 1985, Selbourne provides luxury accommodation and an 18-hole golf course to guests. Further expansion has since added 120 villas that are occupied all year round.
The nearest airport to the resort is Durban Airport.
Orion chief executive officer Franz Gmeiner said: “It is a unique property that offers excellent hospitality and facilities to discerning clientele and the golfing fraternity.
“As a niche luxury hotel, it forms part of a growing, high value added sector of the travel industry.”
He added the company is keen to further expand its South African holdings and recently purchased the Magoebaskloof Hotel and the Coach House Hotel & Spa near Tzaneen.
