Lansmore Masa Square set to open its doors to the public
by Sunday Standard Reporter
Lansmore Masa Square, a member of Lonrho Hotels, said it will open its doors to the public on Wednesday, subject to regulatory approval.
The Hotel General Manager, Rupert Elliott, is bullish the Botswana Tourism Organisation (BTO), which did another round of inspections on Friday, will give them the go ahead.
“We have announced that we will be opening on Wednesday, so I am hopeful of getting approval,” Elliot said at a press conference.
“There was an inspection this morning (Friday) by BTO and they went to every single room in the hotel,” he added.
Located in the north tower of the Masa Square, Lansmore Masa Square’s presence at the heart of Gaborone’s new CBD serves as the tallest hotel in Botswana.
The hotel, which prides itself as the first business hotel in the country, boasts 153 rooms, which include Standard Rooms, Club Rooms and Suites. Initially, 49 rooms will be made available from next week.
In addition, La Touche de Provence, allows patrons to experience a taste of Provencale cuisine that has its own elusive, local twist.
Lansmore Masa Square also offers, in its Espretto Coffee Shop, the finest African coffee beans in each of its coffee drinks, celebrating the rich products of the continent.
“We are unbelievably excited to be able to open our doors to the public. It’s been a long time coming, but it’s always worth a bit of a wait if the experience is then an unparalleled one,” Elliott added.
Setting itself apart from all others, Lansmore Masa Square boasts the highest hotel rooms in the nation, as well as, on its third floor roof terrace, the highest infinity pool in Botswana.
All guests have free access to Wifi in public areas, and rooms are equipped with LCD flat screens with an extensive selection of TV channels. Innovative design elements are featured in all aspects of the room, including dedicated flexible workspaces with high-speed Internet access and an in-room safe.
In addition to its efforts towards redefining the hospitality experience, Lansmore Masa Square has already begun to establish itself as more than simply a hotel.
It has begun the process of portraying itself as an all-round experience that represents the kind of service and luxury Batswana should become accustomed to.
Moreover, much as with the values of its parent company, Lonrho Hotels, Lansmore Masa Square has set in motion its efforts towards investing in Africa and being a relevant member of the society in which it operates, a testament to its dedication towards growing and developing the nation.
Lansmore Masa Square strikes the perfect balance between business and leisure, with the hotel inspiring the promise of impeccable service, comfort and luxury unlike any Batswana have ever experienced before.
“This is a very exciting time for all of us at Lansmore Masa Square. Botswana is a rich and beautiful country. Of this, there is no doubt. What we hope to bring here is the kind of establishment that exudes, in every aspect, the very embodiment of class, luxury, service excellence and, to our community, a sense of relevance so that we are actually adding value to people’s lives,” said Elliot.
