MPUMALANGA one of the county’s top destination, makes its mark on the international radar, once again.
This follows news that Angels View, a world-class luxury hotel has won, not once, but three coveted accolades at the 2023 World Luxury Hotel Awards: Luxury Scenic View Hotel (Continental category), Luxury Country Hotel (Regional category) and Luxury Conference & Event Hotel (Country category).
Perched in picturesque village of Graskop in Mpumalanga, the luxury hotel opened its doors to the world this year, and already has made international headlines.
Owned by travellers and the proprietors, wife Mme Mumsy and Dr Reuel Khoza, are both excited for the awards.
“We are ecstatic! Dreams, particularly dreams we dream awake, do come true, because they morph into compelling visions,” says Dr Khoza, also a celebrated businessman with top accolades under his belt.
He’s a former Nedbank and Eskom chairperson.
“Sequent to co-investing in one of South Africa’s leading hotel groups for several decades, we thought it was time we invested in one iconic one of our own. The late Dr Robbie Nel of Hazyview introduced us to the breathtaking view some eight years ago. The rest is history. Our imagination of what is now Angels View was aided by the creativity of architect Gerhard Jooste from Nelspruit. The vision is now reality,” says Dr Khoza, whom both are Mpumalanga residents.
Both also pointed out that even the biggest dreams, need many hands and a collaborative effort – and they acknowledge Extraordinary, for having done an excellent job of putting Angels View on the map.
Mme Mumsy points out that visitors are always blown away by the combination of incredible natural attractions, wildlife, and first-class hospitality in the region.
She says, “The allure of the Panorama Route boasting God’s Window, The Three Rondavels, The Potholes, Mac Mac Falls, are irresistible for our guests. We are delighted that we have invested in this part of the world so that God’s own artistic work is showcased against the backdrop of our warmth, luxury and hospitality.”
Having been to this magical hotel- it espouses nature and tranquility!
