Founded with the belief that people are connected through shared memories, Dream Hotels & Resorts was established with the dream of creating lasting memories by providing the right canvas: a varied portfolio of resorts and lodges including exclusive membership and ownership opportunities in South Africa’s most sought-after holiday destinations.
Dream Hotels & Resorts’ mantra across its 21 properties, ranging from the iconic Blue Marlin Hotel in Scottburgh, the Peninsula All-Suite Hotel in the Western Cape to Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa in the beautiful Cape Wine lands all the way to Finfoot Lake Reserve situated in the Greater Pilanesberg, is to provide an experience that makes the guest feel like the only guest. This “One Guest” approach centres on exceeding expectations to provide guests with the dream holiday they deserve.
Our collection of destinations is a dynamic and varied one and that is no coincidence. With over 28 years of experience within the hospitality industry, the company strives to discover the special qualities of a location by pinpointing those hidden gems that can be rejuvenated through refurbishment and especially designed for families who long to explore and rediscover South Africa. Originally founded by Weston Dickson and Diane Gordon as Leisure Options in 1988, the business later expanded to incorporate Dream Vacation Club, and has grown considerably. Coupled with membership options and a luxury portfolio of ownership opportunities, we offer a holiday solution to suit you and your family’s specific needs.
Taking a holiday is no longer a luxury but an absolute necessity. It is with this philosophy in mind that Dream Hotels & Resorts continues to grow from strength to strength, always striving to provide people from all walks of life with the joy of travel.
To co-create memorable travel experiences which, connect people for a brighter future.
We deliver dynamic and exceptional hospitality solutions in Africa that connect local and global travellers to our communities in a sustainable and relevant manner.
Dream Hotels & Resorts is run as a family business in structure and in culture, striving to get other families to travel. “A family that plays together, stays together”, that’s the mantra which lies behind the success of the business. With property in their blood and a passion for hospitality, Dream Hotels & Resorts is currently taking the mixed use market by storm and offers exciting opportunities to continuously innovate by adopting a model aligned with international best practice.
