Transformation seems to be the right word to describe the new unveiled Avani Hotels and Resorts, formerly known as Gaborone Sun.

Beginning with the reception area, to the exquisite, spacious rooms, there’s been lots of changes made. The foodies will also love the mouth-watering desserts that they have. 

Creativity is yet another catchphrase to describe how the newly-opened hotel was designed. The rooms and bathrooms are quite spacious and will make guests feel they are home away from home. 

The new-look hotel is a perfect fit for the 21st Century. They say that ‘a design for living space serves as a trendy lifestyle hub with social and private spaces where guests can interact, catch up with friends and meet up for business or enjoy time out’.

Avani also provides Wifi for guests to transact business. Newly appointed General Manager Riaan van Rooyen says Avani is now the capital’s leading leisure and business resort. 

“It is clearly evident from the sheer size and scale of the renovation that Avani Hotels & Resorts is committed to cementing relationships with the communities of Gaborone and Botswana as a whole. Avani Gaborone is now the capital’s leading leisure and business resort,” said Rooyen. 

He was addressing the media last week, which also had an opportunity to spend a night experience to view the hotel. Believe it or not the experience was super because the P79 million spent on renovations was just worth it.

The interior composes of natural light that gives great effect, while on the other hand there is The Pantry just by the reception side. The Pantry offers fresh quick bites for people on the move, as well as comfort food and fresh fruit juices, barista coffees and many more.

Sometimes, sleeping in a hotel might be embarrassing especially when one’s key won’t unlock the door. This would call for one to take a lift or walk down the stairs if one’s room is upstairs. Well, that is not the case with the new Avani. 

There are telephones installed in front of every room as a remedy for such an embarrassment. One would just simply call reception and the key issue would be fixed in an instant. What if your phone battery is dying and you only have a cord without an adapter? 

Oh well, Avani will save you the embarrassment. They have such ports for charging phones just with a cord. How lovely! I got to see that portable miracle port and charged my phone. As I switched on, it did not only charge but the bulb on the other side of the bed also lit the room.

 That lounge room comprising of that elegant furniture also gives the mind full refreshment. It is where guests can just chill in and enjoy their stay at Avani.
