Where Adventure Meets Luxury

Explore the pristine waters of the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef from new luxury hideaway Pelorus Private Island.

Accessible only by private helicopter charter or superyacht, the secluded oasis features just five elegant suites set amid 400 hectares of stunning natural surroundings and is powered only by solar panels and batteries.

Discover the reef by diving, snorkeling, guided jet ski and seabob tours or become acquainted with the flora and fauna of nearby Hinchinbrook Island.

“With the region welcoming the news of an ultra-luxe accommodation offering, Pelorus Private Island puts Queensland in a competitive global landscape, by boasting a rare offering of unparalleled levels of privacy and personalized service that is unique in this part of the world,” Morris Group Chairman Chris Morris said.

“We’re already starting to fill the year with bookings and can’t wait to share this exceptional product with guests from around the globe.”

An African Safari Debut

With majestic views of the Drakensberg Mountains, the Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit in the heart of the Limpopo Province is a breathtaking addition to the hotel group, as well as its first safari hotel in Africa.

Perfectly situated between the Kruger National Park and Blyde River Canyon, the property is surrounded by wildlife and adventures ranging from game drives to horse treks and even hot air balloon rides.

“We are thrilled to open the doors of our first safari-inspired hotel in South Africa. The opening of Radisson Safari Hotel Hoedspruit marks our 11th hotel opening in South Africa and completes our own Golden Triangle Safari offering with exquisite properties in Cape Town and the recently opened Radisson Blu Resort Mosi-oa-Tunya in Livingstone,” Radisson COO Middle East, Africa and SEAP Tim Cordon said.

Lamborghini’s Leap

Luxury car lovers lapped up Lamborghinis in greater numbers than ever before in 2023 as the car manufacturer celebrated its 60th anniversary.

Showing no sign of slowing down, Lamborghini delivered 10,112 cars over the course of the year – representing a 10 percent increase on 2022 figures and the first time the company has broken the 10,000 mark.

The greatest increase was seen in the regions of Europe, Middle East and Africa, which grew by 14 percent compared to the previous year, followed by nine percent in the Americas and four percent in Asia.

While the United States was the top market with 3,000 cars delivered, double-digit spikes were seen in Asia–Pacific with Oceania reporting a rise of 37 percent, Japan coming in at 21 percent and India at 12 percent.

“This outstanding achievement is a clear sign of the growing perception of our brand worldwide and confirms that the strategy we’ve adopted is succeeding,” Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Federico Foschini said.

“It’s a success made possible also thanks to the invaluable contribution of our network of 184 dealerships operating in 54 different markets. Our aim for 2024 is to continue our growth trend in the three macro-regions.”
