With great pride, Janine Cifelli Representation welcomes Zannier Hotels to its portfolio. The brainchild of Arnaud Zannier, this family-owned collection includes Phum Baitang, Cambodia; 1898 The Post, Belgium; Le Chalet, France; Omaanda, Namibia; and Yangon Excelsior in Myanmar. In summer, 2019, Zannier will open a second property in Namibia – Sonop, a tented camp in the Namib desert. Each Zannier hotel is different from the other; yet equally exquisite, capturing the essence and authenticity of its locale.
“We are absolutely thrilled to work with these extraordinary properties – simple in beauty, but highly sophisticated in scope,” says founder Janine Cifelli. Now part of the JCR family:
Phum Baitang, Cambodia: Translated, Phum Baitang means “green village.” And this Siem Reap property lives up to its name, resting elegantly outside of city center, amidst rice paddies and lemongrass fields. Features 45 villas (half with private pools) scattered against lush vegetation. And close to nearby Angkor Wat temple.
1898 The Post, Belgium: Just an hour from Brussels, in the medieval town center of Ghent, this former post office playfully retains its historical roots with names like “The Stamp, The Envelope and The Postcard.” Features 37 rooms and suites, gorgeous city views, and not-to-miss cocktail bar – ‘The Cobbler’ – named after the specialty cocktail shaker.
Le Chalet, France: Located in the French Alps village of Megève, this traditional alpine chalet features 12 gorgeous guest rooms, an open living area with fireplace and casual bistro-chic cuisine: classic French dishes such as steak tartare and frog legs. Open only during the winter months, Le Chalet is a nirvana for skiing and snow adventures.
Omaanda, Namibia: Set in a private conservation reserve, in Windhoek East, this recently opened beautiful lodge features ten traditionally made mud huts, stunning views of the savannah, sumptuous cuisine, including ‘game meat’ from the spit. And forever memorable excursions: elephant, leopard, rhino tracking; private and group game drives.
Yangon Excelsior, Myanmar: An easy, five-minute walk to the temples and sights in Old Yangon, the Yangon Excelsior is reminiscent of the British colonial era and evocative of travel glamour. Décor is vintage, yet modern in style, with leather and manual typewriters; parquet floors and checkered marble slabs.
Sonop, Namibia (opening 2019): The vibe of this tented camp, in the Karas region of the Namib desert, is 1920s British colonial. Each of the lodge’s ten tents are furnished with exotic carpets, antiques, copper bathtubs and rain showers; dinners are classically from a bygone era – complete with black-tie and white-glove service.
