Cresta Hotels CEO, Glenn Stutchbury and the Gardini family are pleased to announce that they have entered into a lease agreement for the operation of Sprayview Hotel in Victoria Falls.

The hotel shall be rebranded Cresta Sprayview and Cresta shall immediately start work on the refurbishment and branding of the hotel.

This agreement allows Cresta to enter into the popular resort town of Victoria Falls, an area previously not covered by their portfolio of hotels in Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. With the General Assembly of the UNWTO being hosted jointly by Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Livingstone, Zambia in August 2013, Cresta will be working towards re-opening the hotel by that date.

Opened in the 1970’s, Sprayview is very much part of the Victoria Falls hospitality history and this agreement creates a win-win for both parties. The Cresta Sprayview will fir into the three star market segment after the refurbishment, an area where the visitor to Victoria Falls needs additional room stock with facilities and service to match. The end product shall be 64 rooms, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, 3 conference rooms and all within 1.4km of the mighty Victoria Falls.

Cresta Hotels currently operates 8 hotels in Botswana, 1 hotel in Zambia and 4 hotels in Zimbabwe, through Cresta Marakanelo listed in Botswana and Cresta Hospitality owned by Zimbabwe Stock Exchange quoted TA Holdings Limited. All the hotels are mid range products and Cresta Sprayview will be a perfect fit for the market tier that the group specializes in.
