In New York on 28th December 2011, Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, the most respected publication in luxury travel, revealed its 2012 Grand Award winners. We are pleased to announce that Elsa's Kopje was named on the prestigious list, which is comprised of Mr. Harper's favorite 19 properties he visited within the past calendar year.

Each of Mr. Harper's Grand Award winners possesses exceptional character, a commitment to classic hospitality and a profound sense of place. Mr. Harper does not evaluate hotels by means of a checklist, but uses his three decades of experience to distinguish the truly enchanting from the merely excellent.
