To maintain the highest standards in refurbishment design and quality, Legacy Hotels & Resorts has invested R6.7 million in soft refurbishments across two of its timeshare properties. With an extensive property portfolio that includes timeshare, Legacy Hotels & Resorts is a leading expert in independent luxury hotels and resorts.
“Our resorts and bush lodges have all been carefully designed and built to complement the special features of each destination. While each Legacy property is entirely unique, they all share a charm, elegance and commitment to service excellence,” explains Charlene Gibbon, the purchasing manager for Legacy Hotels & Resorts.
The Group recently completed a R6.7 million soft refurbishment of the timeshare units at Castleburn Resort and Bakubung Bush Lodge. Prior thereto, R10 million was invested in the enhancement of the timeshare units at Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge and Kruger Park Lodge.
“Ensuring our owners feel comfortable and at home during their stay, means staying ahead of our game by keeping our resorts up to standard, fresh and technologically aligned,” says Charlene.
She adds that refurbishment also gives owners the peace of mind that their replacement reserve fund is being wisely managed without having to raise special levies for refurbishment projects. The Group makes use of a professional designer who specifies timeless pieces which are hard wearing and suitable for high use, but with a modern look and feel. Top of mind is owners’ time to kick up their feet and relax as they take a break from the busyness and haste of everyday life. So to keep inconvenience to a minimum, refurbishments are carried out during the unit’s maintenance week.
“We have invested significantly in our timeshare properties and are proud to deliver high-quality, modern guest experiences that aligns with our brand standards. The compliments received from owners reassures us that we are fulfilling our promise of exceptional experiences that will be loved and remembered for life,” concludes Charlene.
Castleburn turns up its tranquil appeal
In the foothills of the southern Drakensberg nestles Castleburn, a home to wildlife, birdlife, unpolluted air and crystal clear streams. Inspired by its surrounding natural beauty, the recently completed soft refurbishment has elevated the tranquil appeal of an already outstanding property. The Fisherman’s Lofts, comprising sixteen two-bedroom apartments, now exude a more modern feel while retaining the earthy tones of the rustic mountain theme. All the apartments received new light fittings, updated plug points and new tiles in the lounge, dining, kitchen and guest bathrooms. While a big drawcard is being able to escape the hustle of city life and busy schedules, owners can still access a Wi-Fi service in the comfort of their chalet when needed.
Bakubung gets the stamp of approval
Fondly translated as “Place of the Hippo”, Bakubung Bush Lodge brings timeshare owners closer to the splendour and beauty of the African bush. And it’s not just the African splendour they love. A general refurbishment of the softs and some furniture has given the timeshare chalets a whole new look and feel which has received the stamp of approval from owners. The soft tones of the African bush colour palette are embraced throughout the chalet. New curtains, soft carpeting, crisp white linen in the bedrooms as well as new couches, re-upholstered sleeper couches and refurbished kitchen cupboards seamlessly create a refreshed atmosphere where owners can unwind and truly relax.
