Located just in the middle of Broadhurst suburb in Gaborone, Elegant and Exclusive Boutique is an upmarket lodging facility like no other. The place screams elegance and class. When you are outside, you would take it to be like any other regular guest house. But go inside and brace yourself to be blown away by class and elegance. Add great hospitality to that and you will have to do a reality check. The furniture used is mostly wood. The reception has luxurious couches and an ambience to die for. There are the standard rooms, deluxe, executive and presidential. The rooms are individually crafted, with exclusive dimensions. The owner of the boutique Ruth Gabasiane said, “Each of our rooms has a theme of its own, intended to continuously attract repeat guests, to visit and stay with us again for a different experience”. She said they make sure that all their guests either those having short or long stays, feel uniquely special and enjoy their stay by offering them personalised service. There is a swimming pool, outdoor shower, garden and outdoor relaxation areas, barbeque facility, free unlimited Wi-Fi, in room television sets with DSTv and unlike many places there is also in-room ironing facilities.
The presidential suite is dubbed Diamond and is all white with over the top furniture. Gabasiane said in making the rooms they made sure that they blended high quality import pieces and African personality with exceptional modern standards and luxury fittings. “Every room has its own individual character and vibe. The bathrooms are also fitted with state of the art san-ware and accessories, each of them with its own flair,” she said. The Diamond offers opulent living and dining area and extravagant bathroom, offering privacy with easy access to the pool area. The Ruby is also a presidential suite that opens into a private patio, overlooking the gardens and also exclusively furnished. There is the Emerald which is semi-detached with secluded privacy and luring serenity. This one comes equipped with a spacious open plan bathroom, kitchenette and a lavish bedroom perfectly appropriate for a business trip or a couple. In order to cater for those living with a disability there is also the Topaz room which is specially adapted for wheelchair access but still retaining the ambience of all the rooms.
