Hailed as the gem of the African continent, Botswana is a fascinating country of extraordinary natural beauty, wildlife and mineral wealth.

Just a few minutes from the CBD of the capital, Gaborone, and Sir Seretse Khama International Airport, is the elegant Grand Palm Hotel, Casino and Convention Resort – Botswana’s first five-star hotel complex.

The resort combines African luxury with Peermont quality to provide top-notch accommodation which offers a full range of services for business travellers, premium leisure guests and conference tour groups.

Situated in the heart of Gaborone, the Grand Palm has maintained the highest standards over the years.

A 24.2 million pula (R26m) upgrade has been undertaken, which entailed an expansion and refurbishment of the casino; a refurb of the Walmont Hotel’s exclusive executive floor business lounge, bedroom and bathrooms; and a revamp of the Livingstone’s restaurant into the contemporary Mokolwane Bistro.

The Peermont Walmont Hotel is a contemporary, deluxe 188- room hotel which has won numerous awards, including Botswana’s Leading Hotel.

The Grand Palm has won Best Convention Centre and Best Casino/Entertainment Centre in Botswana.

A choice of restaurants, top entertainment and casino area, a gym and helipad, complimentary shuttle services, internet access, satellite TV and the exclusive executive fifth floor which provides a separate guest relations desk, a business lounge and a private executive boardroom for meetings, are just some of the resort’s facilities and modern conveniences that discerning travellers have come to expect. – Saturday Star.
