Three Cities Exceptional Hotels has added the first Zululand destination to its esteemed Resorts brand, currently boasting resorts in Drakensberg, on the West Coast and in Mpumalanga. Mike Lambert, chief executive of Three Cities, said that the inclusion of the Jozini Tiger Lodge in Northern KwaZulu Natal which not only provides an exceptional destination for a family getaway but also includes a conference centre that is able to accommodate at least 50 delegates is the perfect fit for the Three Cities portfolio.
He said that in tough economic times, it made sense for operations such as Jozini Tiger Lodge to conclude management agreements with trusted brands such as Three Cities as there were a great deal of synergies that could be realised to the benefit both stakeholders.
He pointed out that owners of resorts could leverage 24 years of hospitality management and marketing expertise. One of the chief benefits was to connect with Three Cities’ booking and reservation system which assisted both suppliers and independent travelers with a “one stop shop” itinerary. An extensive investment in a digital reservation platform encompassing real time connection to each resort’s reservation system, a dedicated call centre, online booking engine as well as direct links into several online travel agencies and other API and GDS channels makes the Three Cities reservation process seamless.
“This facility proves invaluable and cost effective resources for many facilities that don’t have the technical infrastructure and marketing reach that our system provides, Lambert added.
The Jozini Tiger Lodge was built early in 2008. Located approximately 300km from Durban, close to the picturesque Pongolapoort River and the Jozini Dam. The lodge provides a range of accommodation options including self catering units and bed and breakfast facilities in luxurious en suite accommodation.
Jozini town is a stone throw from world renowned tourist attractions such as Kosi Bay, Sodwana Bay and popular game reserves such as Hluhluwe Mfolozi, Mkuze game and Ndumo.
