Best rates at O&L hotels
According to Bruce Hutchison, Managing Director of Olthaver and List Leisure Hotels and Lodges, the idea of repositioning the prices was to help every Namibian to experience tranquility experienced by other visitors at the two lodges. “We truly want all Namibians to enjoy what our many visitors from overseas do and believe that these exclusive offers will help them do so,” he said.
He said that the mission of Olthaver and List Leisure Hotels and Lodges is to offer a genuine sense of place, experienced with warmth, sincerity and a sense of being hosted. “With Namibians, what you see is what you get. We want to empower our employees to welcome our guests by hosting them, not serving them,” he said. Hutchison added that Olthaver and List Leisure Hotels and Lodges are not cookie cutter brands but are committed to providing a true Namibian experience.
In addition to the price adjustments, the Olthaver and List Leisure Hotels and Lodges also revamped its website for both lodges as well as the new development, the Strand Hotel to be build in Swakopmund. The websites offer quick and easy access to essential information about destinations. They offer real time availability, online booking and secure payment possibilities and are now more interactive.
According to Olthaver and List Leisure Hotels and Lodges General Manager for Marketing and IT, Thomas Mueller, Namibian companies still market their services through the traditional channels. Namibia needs to get ready for the paradigm shift, we need to integrate old ways of marketing with new strategies in order to attract new customers and retain old ones,” said Mueller.
