MASERU — Lesotho Sun International last Thursday launched a new spa and beauty salon as part of the hotel’s upgrading programme.
The reopening of the Lesotho Sun Gym and Spa is part of the hotel’s upgrading programme which began in May last year which is being funded by Sun International and the government of Lesotho.
“We believe the new facilities will cater for in-house guests and also our executive corporate market guests.
“In line with the needs of our in-house guests we have made sure that they have the best facilities to use as they come for their holidays and business meetings,” Martin van der Breggen, Lesotho Sun acting area manager said.
“The hotel was very old and it needed a facelift. This is why we have embarked on the renovations to enhance our services to the clients.”
Van der Breggen said the hotel had since engaged the services of a local beauty salon, Essentials and Beauty, to provide massage and therapy services to both leisure and business travellers.
“In essence what the project entails is the design and layout of the spin room, rejuvenation of the weight section and aerobics area,” he said.
In a statement released to the media last Thursday, Lesotho Sun said they had also refurbished the casino, 158 guest rooms, the conference area, reception foyer, bars, buffet restaurant, kitchen and pool area.
“The hotel has 158 luxury air-conditioned rooms including two royal suites, four duplex rooms and 14 luxury rooms.
“All guest rooms feature an en-suite bathroom, 32 inch flat screen television, digital safe and high speed internet access.”
The statement said “business and leisure travelers will be spoilt for choice with three treatment areas, two nail bars and a fully equipped beauty salon”.
Lesotho Sun says it expects the last phase of the refurbishment to be completed at the end of next month.
The refurbishments began in May last year with the government of Lesotho contributing M30 million towards the project with the balance being contributed by Sun International.
