Singita Sabi Sand, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa
Established over half a century ago, Relais & Châteaux is an association of hoteliers, chefs and restaurateurs that has set the standard for excellence in hospitality. Relais & Châteaux has redefined luxury hospitality by emphasising holistic experiences that transport its guests, taking them on a sensual journey and introducing them to a deeper, truer understanding of the Art of Living.
The story of Relais & Châteaux begins in 1941 when two former music hall entertainers, Marcel and Nelly Tilloy purchased “La Cardinale”, an estate in the Rhône Valley. In 1952 the Tilloys began recruiting other hoteliers and restaurant owners that shared the same level of quality and excellence and passions for fine cuisine and Art de Vivre. In 1954, this group of kindred spirits merged together to create Relais & Châteaux. In the beginning, there were only eight establishments along the road between Paris and the French Riviera. Today, there are more than 540 members.
Vast expanses of space and awe-inspiring natural scenery surround each of Singita’s renowned safari lodges and camps. Dotted throughout unspoiled nature reserves across several African countries, these luxurious dwellings limit vehicles and guests to ensure the preservation of their unique environments and the creation of transformative guest experiences. Spend your days spotting rare local wildlife and your nights being pampered with exceptional service and amenities.
