WHAT’S NEW(S) AT SUPEREPS?
In recent months we have been proud to add new clients to our Portfolio from around the world and also to welcome back some previous stalwarts. Among the former are Oman’s luxurious Al Nahda Hotels & Resorts, the five stars-plus Colonna Pevero Hotel in Porto Cervo on world famous Costa Smeralda and something new from the sunny Caribbean, The Boutique Collection – Antigua. Among the latter, we are delighted to welcome back to the fold after a brief absence the spectacularly located Nexus Resort & Spa Karambunai in Sabah, East Malaysia.
. . . now the details!
- The 5 stars Al Nahda Resort & Spa, tranquilly situated amid 30 acres of greenery (in a former mango orchard) is less than an hour’s drive from central Muscat; while, 45 minutes’ drive away, is its sister property, Dunes by Al Nahda, an intimate and ultra-luxurious boutique desert camp. This is the nearest desert resort to downtown Muscat and the UAE. (www.alnahdaresort.com).
- The stunning 5 stars Luxe Colonna Pevero Hotel is beautifully located amid lush hillside gardens less than a mile from Porto Cervo in the heart of Costa Smeralda. Pevero Golf club is only one mile away. (www.colonnapeverohotel.it).
- Another recent addition, The Boutique Collection – Antigua, brings some friendly Caribbean sunshine to our Client Portfolio. Three of Antigua & Barbuda’s most respected travel enterprises – The Villas at Sunset Lane, The Catamaran Hotel and Carib-world Travel – have associated for the purposes of UK Representation under the banner of “The Boutique Collection – Antigua”. The Villas at Sunset Lane, situated on a picturesque hillside near Dickenson Bay and overlooking the Caribbean Sea, is considered Antigua’s Number One All-inclusive boutique hotel. (www.villasatsunsetlane.com). While many experts rate The Catamaran Hotel – a relaxed beachfront boutique property, just half a mile or so from Nelson’s Dockyard – as one of the few truly Caribbean inns remaining in the islands. (www.catamaranantigua.com). The third member of this Caribbean triumvirate, Carib-World Travel, is one of the island’s most experienced and respected DMCs, equally at home when dealing with FITs, leisure groups, MICE, weddings or luxury villa rentals.

. . . IN EAST MALAYSIA
We are pleased to reintroduce one of Malaysia’s best-known hotel resorts, the comprehensively refurbished and spectacular Nexus Resort & Spa, Karambunai,which has signalled its intention to significantly step up its UK marketing activities by announcing the appointment of Supereps International as its UK Representative.
This luxurious resort, ideally situated amid unrivalled natural and landscaped surroundings, on the picturesque Karambunai Peninsula, in Sabah, Borneo (just 38kms from Kota Kinabalu Airport) boasts as a majestic backdrop a stunning 6kms of pristine white sandy beach, a centuries-old tropical rainforest and a lush green on-site golf course.
Extensive and thoughtfully-designed facilities, spread over 3,335 acres, enable the hotel to accommodate vacationers – including families – plus the corporate and MICE sectors. All 485 guestrooms are tastefully furnished with options of panoramic views of the South China Sea, the beautifully-manicured golf course or the tropical rainforest. The property has a superb array of 9 Asian and International restaurants and bars to satisfy all tastes. (www.nexusresort.com).
. . . WHILST IN THAILAND!
There is a stunning addition to Supereps’ Thai Hotels Portfolio. The Kalima Resort & Spa is one of Thailand’s new breed of spectacular hotels. A veritable “hideaway”, this is a luxurious contemporary tropical resort nestled on a jungle-clad hillside on the outskirts of Patong, Phuket with spectacular views over the Andaman Sea. Other outstanding features include the only private hillside beach in Phuket (with its very own artificial sand beach), a mini 9 holes golf course and a relaxing Beach Club. (www.kalimaresort.com).
. . . AND IN AFRICA, CITY LODGE’S FOOTPRINT GROWS AND GROWS
One of South Africa’s best-known and biggest hotel groups, where value-for-money and comfort are the keys, continues to expand. With more than 50 properties strategically located across the country – and with several more on the planning board – the Group, especially its airport hotels, are ideal for the corporate traveller with tariffs to satisfy even the most budget-conscious Company Treasurer . . . and the good news is that City Lodge is expanding fast – both within RSA and in Sub Saharan Africa. In the last 12 months new-build properties have been opened in Midrand (between Johannesburg and Pretoria) downtown Johannesburg and Pietermaritzburg.
Whilst, further afield – and to complement its existing Sub Saharan Portfolio – development is well under way in Dar es Salaam, Nairobi and Windhoek and negotiations for further expansion are ongoing in Kampala and Maputo. (www.clhg.com).
. . . AND FINALLY, “HAPPY TRAILS”!
Every quotation or itinerary prepared by Asian Trails, one of the leading destination management companies in Asia, is signed-off “Happy Trails”! and this is exactly what leisure, conference and incentive clients can expect when you entrust your business to them. The company, which has its operational Head Office in Bangkok, Thailand and country offices in Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Indonesia and Vietnam – and with over 400 staff – can provide comprehensive incoming services throughout South East Asia and China.
