Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel reopened on April 1, with a completely fresh yet “quintessentially historic” look following an extensive and long-awaited refurbishment.
Respecting the rich history of Victoria Falls and its exquisite natural surroundings, Stanley & Livingstone’s reinvention justifiably delivers on its reputation as a Condé Nast award-winning luxury property, with all the hallmarks guests have come to expect from a MORE Family Collection stay.
Located in the Big Five Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve, this stunning property features 16 luxury suites. But it is the hotel’s spectacular landscaped gardens and views of the water hole that are the star of the show, as guests enjoy sightings of passing plains game over a meal or drinks on the terrace of 1871 at Stanley & Livingstone, set to become the area’s finest dining experience.
Afternoon tea on the terrace is equally a special event, featuring a twist… lemon in gin cocktails and Champagne paired with teas, cakes, and savouries – perfect for discerning nature-lovers who love the good life, good food and great company.
Just a 10-minute drive from Victoria Falls, with complimentary daily transfers provided, Stanley & Livingstone offers the best of both worlds – a tranquil place in nature to restore self and the perfect base from which to enjoy many of the surrounding activities, from gorge swings to game drives, and much more.
Guests visiting the Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with a black rhino; the proceeds of which go towards supporting the dedicated anti-poaching unit. Through their visit, guests, therefore, contribute directly to the preservation of one of the world’s critically endangered animal species.
For families, MORE Family Collection’s celebrated Mack & Madi Kids Explorer programme is unlike any kids’ programme in Southern Africa and younger guests are gifted their own bathroom amenities and a branded backpack with an activities book, pencil case and crayons, among other special treats. Two interleading sets of suites, each including one triple Suite, complete the experience for families headed to Victoria Falls.
Honeymooners and couples are also uniquely catered for, with private Suites, in-room spa treatments and a touch of romance in both dining experiences and turndowns, delivered with heart by Alan Bailes and his team whose genuine Zimbabwean warmth will linger long after guests have returned home.
Their hospitality, along with a Private Travel Concierge for any on-site assistance guests may need, ensure that any stay at Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel is one filled with warmth and fond memories. – MORE Family Collection
