Required & Recommended Upgrades

In recent years Guludo has been in "tick-over" operational mode. Due to this the property requires some basic upgrades to offer an experience on par with its reputation as a world-leading sustainable retreat for discerning international clientele. These upgrades fall into two categories; Required – upgrades which we believe are required to offer a product in line with the vision of Guludo and TLB, and; Recommended – upgrades which we think would elevate Guludo, improve infrastructure and increase revenue.
