Elephant Springs Apartments now open!

SOA’s newly renovated self-catering establishment in Bela Bela, Elephant Springs Apartments, has officially opened its doors this past month. The 20-unit, 3-bedroomed property located opposite Forever Resorts Warmbaths, welcomed its first guests to rave reviews.

The property, which shares the restaurant, bar and reception with the next door hotel, boasts brand new interiors in each unit, with renovated bathrooms (both now offer a shower), new look kitchen and allocated braai stands for each unit. All groundfloor units have a built in braai on their patios, while balcony units have numbered braai stands next to the pool.

Additional guest toilets have been added to the courtyard area for guests who stay in the balcony units, making it more convenient and no longer having to head up the stairs should the need arise. A new pergola is also added to the pool side, with upcoming children playground facilities introduced later in the year. The swimming pool has also been redone with a beautiful blue look that matches the new Greek-inspired exterior colour scheme.

Another new feature is the selfie hotspot of angel wings, which guests are recommended to use as their backdrop when posting photos on social media. The property has its own social media channels and can be tagged at @elephantspringsapartments on Instagram and Facebook, or @apartmentsES on Twitter.

Complimentary WiFi is also part of the offering at the Elephant Springs Apartments, and each unit has its own Smart TV with Netflix, ShowMax and YouTube available free of charge.

Elephant Springs Apartments renovation underway

One of Bela Bela’s favourite self-catering destinations have closed its doors in early May for a complete renovation project that is set to be completed late June 2022.

The look of brand new self-catering apartments have recently been teased in glimpses behind the scenes. Highlights will include new closed off patios with built-in braais for the ground floor units, private numbered braais for the balcony units next to the pool, new bedroom layouts, upgraded en suite bathroom for the main bedroom, as well as a new look second bathroom that now boasts a large walk in shower.

The look of the property will also completely change with a brand new coat of paint and a different colour scheme. According to Director Stef Venter, the look will match Bela Bela being a holiday destination, and visitors will rejoice in the new atmosphere this new look will create.

To further assist future guests, the self-catering side have been split from the hotel side, and will henceforth be available to book online as separate entities. The split has already occurred on the official website www.elephantsprings.co.za, which offers visitors the choice between hotel and apartments.
