- A 2-night stay, including breakfast, in a delux room (valued R5 200) at the 5-star Glen Avon Lodge Boutique Hotel
One of the first things people remark on when they visit Glen Avon Lodge Boutique Hotel in Cape Town’s famous Constantia Valley is often its greenery. Usually they are referring to its magnificent rose-filled gardens – but whilst a lot of love and care goes into the grounds, they are not what this 21-bedroom, 5-star boutique hotel is most proud of; what the team at Glen Avon Lodge Boutique Hotel is most proud of is their top rating for other green credentials having been awarded the accolade as a “Green Champion with Distinction”, scoring 88% overall for Sustainable Tourism Management. This recognition as a CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE PROPERTY was awarded by Green Tourism Active the Cape Town-based non-profit, global sustainability assessment & certification organisation that is a member of, and recognized by, the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). Glen Avon Lodge Boutique Hotel is setting new standards in sustainable tourism in the Constantia Valley.
