Authentic Retreats is a management and marketing company based in South Africa, specialising in unique and boutique properties with extraordinary experiences. We work to represent hand-picked, Authentic Retreats that make luxury travel dreams a reality.

We have a distinctive approach to how we do business and are not a “one size fits all” hotel management company. Our pride and passion lie in creating exceptional guest experiences, adding value to business models, protecting assets, and building strong individual brands for high end luxury properties.

The Authentic Retreats team offer a diverse range of skills and a wealth of collective experience in the hospitality industry, from holistic hotel management, to a full suite of sales and marketing services, encompassing all of the latest tools in technology.

But we aren’t a traditional hotel management company, and this isn’t a copy and paste solution. We work closely with property owners to tailor make packages based on where we can add
practical value, considering the individual needs of a business and brand.

In this high paced, ever changing environment, we emphasise the ability to be agile with decision making, follow structured reporting schedules, and use quantifiable data, which is vital to enable transparency, and focus on deliverables.

We grow assets, enhance guest experience, upskill management teams, and build meaningful and authentic brands.
