Cresta Marakanelo Limited (CML) is expanding its Mahalapye property by 64 additional rooms. The development will take place on a piece of land adjacent to the existing hotel, as the two plots have since been consolidated.

The extended part of the hotel offers 62 additional rooms comprising 58 standard rooms, two twin rooms, one presidential suite and one paraplegic. Currently, the hotel has 64 rooms, which will now be spread over 126 rooms.

“This coupled with the projected increased revenue generation of the hotel will make this a strategic investment. There will also be a divisible and soundproof conference room which at maximum capacity will accommodate 100 delegates (this is in addition to the 250-conferencing capacity on the existing hotel).

The estimated development cost is P40 million, building only excluding furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF and E). Estimated FF and E are P16 million,” CML managing director Mokwena Morulane said.
