Rhulani wins its fourth "Oscar" in the winter wonderland

  • December 12, 2017 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

In the first days of December, Rhulani Safari Lodge was invited for the fourth year in a row by the World Luxury Hotel Awards to the annual Gala Ceremony. And for the fourth time in a row we were handed over a trophy in the highest possible category: "Best Luxury Bush Lodge - Global Winner".

Elegant setting in the Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz / Switzerland

The event was very special this year. Especially because the ceremony took place in the Swiss town of St. Moritz. For Rhulani's owner Rolf, who lives in Switzerland, this was very convenient: "I travelled to Cape Town, Hong Kong and Doha in previous years, so it was ideal for us to have the event practically on our doorstep," says Rolf.

The beautiful drive to the Engadine, crossing the Swiss Alps, in fantastic weather, still took just over three hours. Nevertheless, it was possible to participate with the whole family for once. Rolf's wife Marisa, who deals with marketing tasks, also participated at the event, as well as Rolf's son Timo, who provides support for social media channels of Rhulani.

As usual, the ceremony took place in the most elegant setting. In the midst of a snow wonderland, the organizers chose the Kulm Hotel, one of the most luxurious winter holiday destinations in the Swiss mountains. There were more than 300 guests from 80 different countries present, which probably best illustrates the importance of this award.

The invitation told us that we would win a prize, but the incertitude for us was in which of the four levels "country", "region", 'continent' or "global" it will be. Rolf says: " We are so happy that we received the award, that looks like a little 'Oscar', in the highest category for the fourth time."

This success was made possible again by the vote of all our loyal guests, supporters, business partners, travel agencies and friends. This award works on the principle of "people's choice". We would like to thank all those who have given us the vote!
