Hotel Public Space Design Finalist
Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge
California, United States
Lying on the edge of Botswana’s mysterious Savute Channel and within Chobe National Park, where the ‘big five’ roam, the Belmond Savute Elephant Lodge has undergone a full redesign, the result of a collaboration between Belmond (owner/operator), Muza Lab (interior design) and Luxury Frontiers (architectural, infrastructure and back of house design). Together, they set about reinvigorating the resort to engage guests through curated spaces, showcase the natural beauty of the locale and reflect Belmond’s commitment to sustainability. The team designed entirely new public areas – including an arrival lobby, dining room, lounge and bar, library, pool, spa and game-viewing hide — while also refurbishing the guest suites. The resulting design is a contemporary tribute to the golden age of exploration. And while the design rightfully evokes a sense of adventure and discovery, guests are also drawn to connect with the natural world and slow down to the rhythm of the land that surrounds them.
