Popular hospitability establishment Sedia Hotel has taken a new look following its acquisition by safari outfit Desert and Delta Safaris which embarked on process to refurbish the facility, starting with all the rooms, a project which has since been completed and operational.
Desert and Delta marketing officer, Blessed Lechane recently took us through the facility and also shared the timeline of the completed transformative refurbishment and the upcoming phase.
According to Lechane, following the acquisition of the hotel, Desert and Delta Safaris channelled efforts towards a complete rebirth of the property, first with the complete refurbishment of all the standard rooms last year.
These were followed by the refurbishment of the six family cottages which used to be two-bedroomed, with their configuration changed to two different types – two converted to family suites, while the others were converted to a 3 bedrooms’ concept (each en suite) which can be booked as separate standard rooms and also as family rooms.
This phase was then followed by the refurbishment of another batch of 12 standard rooms (these mirrored the first 12 batch) which were completed during the first week of October.
This has rebirthed new feel rooms, whose deco, views and the balcony gives the guest a memorable stay. The views of the refurbished standard rooms are also such that they directly overlook the garden under the cover of vegetation that also gives the guest a cool, and serene environment. Here, with the pool by the main area, one escapes the not so forgiving high temperatures of Maun.
This makes the hotel one of the best places to lodge, offering the best service, tranquillity, comfort and good food.
Besides the also boasts a massive, spacious campsite with a capacity of over 250 tents for over landers, self-drives and those going on mobile safaris into the world famous Moremi Game Reserve.
The facility also prides in its restaurant which has been get good reviews for its food that complements the good accommodation, hospitality and the tranquil and serene environment of the facility that sits on the banks of the Thamalakane River.
All these would not have been complete without the people, the staff that make the work and excellent service at the hotel true to Desert and Delta believe in developing the people through tourism, all the employees from the old management were absorbed and new ones employed. To date Sedia Hotel employs 67 staff.
“Sedia is the ideal place to be when you are in Maun. Very beautiful setting, giving you a peaceful atmosphere to enjoy yourself,” Lechane said.
