Lonrho unveils hotel in Botswana
Lonrho Hotels today announces it has opened its new first class hotel, Lansmore Masa Square in the heart of Gaborone, one of Africa’s fastest growing destinations.
Lansmore Masa Square will bring the very best of international luxury to Gaborone, offering a range of luxury guest bedrooms, Lansmore Club bedrooms and luxurious suites. Lansmore includes a purpose built Conference Centre with capacity for up to 350 delegates, roof-top pool and sunset bar, a Lonrho business lounge, Espretto coffee shop and the gourmet restaurant, Le Touché de Provence.
Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, is developing rapidly with growth driven by not merely diamonds but an increasing diversified economy. Like any fast growing economy, there is a need for business travellers to have a reliable, convenient and enjoyable base from where to work whilst in Gaborone. Lansmore Masa Square has been specifically designed to be the very best place from where to do business in Botswana. Guest won’t need to worry about whether there is fast WIFI or whether the team can host an important meeting or dinner at short notice; the Lansmore team is dedicated to contributing to the success of its guest.
David Lenigas, Executive Chairman of Lonrho said: “The new Lonrho Lansmore Masa Square hotel is located in the prime market position right at the heart of Gaborone’s new central business district and close to the High Court. The Lansmore Masa Square gives guests easy access to this landmark square, placing guests at the heart of Gaborone with all the comfort they expect from a Lonrho Lansmore Hotel. There is no better place to stay in Gaborone.”
Says Lonrho Hotels chief executive Ewan Cameron: “Lansmore places our guests where they want to be, truly connecting them in the continent’s high growth destinations. Lonrho Hotels wishes to see Lansmore Masa Square being embraced by Gaborone. We’ve designed the Touché de Provence restaurant and Espretto coffee bar to cascade into Masa Square, so as to create a beautiful space to relax, spend time with friends or merely take-away a wonderful cappuccino.”
Lansmore guests can look forward to enjoying a number of outstanding features when they choose Lansmore: arrival concierge, next day’s shirt pressed on arrival, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi powered by a designated satellite link, Lonrho’s business lounge, an tray of African teas, coffees and local fruit in your bedroom and the reassurance that the 24/7 guest service team is always one button away.
“This is a landmark development for Gaborone,” says developer and managing director of RDC Properties, Guido Giachettii. “The new Lonrho Lansmore Hotel is going to be the hub of entertainment and cultural life in Gaborone. We’ve been working on this exciting project for nearly four years and we’re very happy to be partnering with Lonrho Hotels who have the experience and expertise to make the hotel a Botswana landmark.”
