    • It was really worthwhile entertaining the international luxury travel editors hosted by ILTM Africa at our property and meeting them first-hand to show them our hotel. It is so well organised and relaxed and we will definitely be back.

    • We met high quality buyers who we will definitely be getting good business from. The US market is booking and demand continues to grow for us and with so many new buyers we are very happy with our participation this year. We will be back again in 2018.
