Royal elephant compilation 1It started twenty-five years ago with a Scottish themed lodge. Soon after, a five-star fly-fishing haven opened up on the others side of the Swartkops Mountain in Muldersdrift. Next the sound of pinging golf balls and roaring lions were added to this ever-growing portfolio. What does Guvon Hotels and Spas have up their sleeve next? Something with a distinct Moroccan flavour, it seems.

In line with CEO Kosie Pansegrouw’s vision of creating niche products in prime locations and places of outstanding natural beauty, Guvon Hotels and Spas are known for its innovation, constant improvement and sustained passion for the hospitality industry, through the dedicated effort of its dynamic team. Adding Royal Elephant with its unique Moroccan theme fits like a hand in glove, adding substance to this vision of offering leisure, corporate and wedding guests something different and a cut above the rest.
