In a move that leverages opportunities in South Africa as the 2010 FIFA World Cup approaches, Preferred Hotel Group has formed a new strategic partnership with boutique hotel company Mantis Group to become the largest international hotel brand in South Africa. The total number of Preferred members on the continent now reaches 30. These latest 14 additions to the family range from luxury properties in bustling Cape Town, to unique game reserves in Port Elizabeth and the Kruger National Park ­ as well as the renowned Draycott Hotel in London.

"Through this new and mutually beneficial partnership with Mantis Group, Preferred Hotel Group reaffirms our commitment to expanding its infrastructure and presence in Africa," said Jose Ventura, regional director­ of Africa for Preferred Hotel Group. "With the spotlight currently on South Africa, in light of the World Cup, our growing collection of properties provides travellers a variety of 'wish list' holiday experiences for now and in the future."

These new additions join three other new members in South Africa, including Cape Royale Luxury Hotel and Residences, Cape Town; and the Devon Valley Hotel and Erinvale Golf Estate ­ Hotel & Spa both in the Stellenbosch Region.
