With the ink just dry on the BON Hotel Addis Ababa contract, BON Hotels, a hospitality company that owns, manages and markets hotels throughout South Africa and the rest of the continent, has taken on a second property in East Africa. BON Hotels has acquired the Lake Heights Hotel, Entebbe, Uganda. The hotel will be re-branded as Lake Heights Entebbe by BON Hotels on October 1st, 2016
BON Hotels’ acquisition of Lake Heights is the latest addition to the BON stable and forms an integral part of the group’s expansion plans into Africa. The hotel is poised to take advantage of the high volume of air transit through the nearby Entebbe International Airport, which is itself currently undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion. The Lake Heights Entebbe hotel is a convenient option for leisure travelers, on their way to Uganda’s national parks, as well as corporate travelers en route to Kampala.
Lake Heights Entebbe hotel is the city’s first boutique-style hotel and offers 33 individually-designed rooms overlooking Lake Victoria, all with signature comfortable beds, generous work spaces and high-speed complimentary Wi-Fi. The hotel’s facilities include a wellness center, spa and gymnasium; a full in-house restaurant and bar, overlooking the lake; a purpose-built conference venue and swimming pool.
Tim Grobler, Lake Heights’ General Manager, says: “Guests will enjoy a warm welcome, modern facilities, delicious cuisine and a relaxing time with us – our great location makes for excellent sightseeing and things to do in the area.”
Guy Stehlik, CEO of BON Hotels adds: “This acquisition further cements our presence in key African countries that we identified some time ago.”
