NH Collection Hotels & Resorts

The very first NH Collection property in South Africa is slated to soon launch in Sandton this year. This marks a major change and is cause for bittersweet excitement as the world’s second leading hospitality group  with over 500 properties spread across 56 countries worldwide makes its debut with what is to be called NH Collection Sandton. Look forward to a property that exudes sophistication and leaves you ‘feel[ing] the extraordinary’ after July 2024. The properties typically include spacious bedrooms, gold accents, and understated glamour.

Vignette Collection

Undoubtedly for the aesthete and passionate creatives, International Hotel Group’s (IHG) Vignette Collection communicates poetically around the power and importance of storytelling and community, stating the unique elements of this particular hotel brand. True to its emphasis on uniqueness, the hotels are named thusly – from Yours Truly in the USA to Th8 Palm Beach Resort in the UAE and Hotel X Brisbane Fortitude Vly in Australia – which all carry a vibe of their own while maintaining the lush and considered tone of the Vignette Collection brand.

Coming soon to the African continent is the very first Vignette Collection property to be built in Zimbabwe, House of Chinhara, Victoria Falls.
