MORE Family Collection is a luxury group of award-winning hotels and lodges scattered across South Africa’s most sought-after leisure destinations. The brand is celebrated for creating opportunities and experiences that allow its guests to enrich their vacations and their lives. Recently, the brand announced a new addition to its portfolio: private “exclusive-use” residences.
Evolving travel trends
As we all know, with COVID-19 came a need for social distancing. For many, this meant heading off the beaten track, far from the madding crowd. As a result, accommodation options reserved exclusively for one travel party at a time were catapulted into popularity and have remained in high demand ever since.
“The accommodation landscape has changed considerably since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out,” says MORE Family Collection CEO Robert More. “Globally, guests have been seeking out ‘exclusive-use properties’ that they can ‘own’ for the duration of their stay. For our Residences portfolio, we’ve handpicked four properties for this exact purpose, and for their location and the unique experiences they offer.”
The private residences in the MORE Family Collection include the Oldenburg Residence, which is a two-century-old Cape Dutch homestead located in the heart of the Cape Winelands, and the More Quarters Residence, a heritage house in Cape Town’s luxurious Gardens suburb.
Outside of the Cape, the Residences portfolio extends into the bushveld, with the Fish Eagle Residence and Hinkwenu Residence drawing in safari-seekers from far and wide. Both are nestled in the Lion Sands Game Reserve in the greater Kruger National Park. It’s easy to spot the Big 5 during a stay at either residence – after all, the Fish Eagle Residence boasts a private deck overlooking the Sabie River and both residences come equipped with their own private safari vehicle and dedicated field guide team.
Whether an exclusive-use venue or an upmarket hotel is on the cards, travellers can always look to MORE Family Collection for a getaway to remember. Just a few of the experiences on offer through their accommodation options include flavourful food and wine excursions, magical treehouse stays, as well as opportunities for travellers to travel with a purpose by immersing themselves in local communities through charitable initiatives.
