Double Takes: South African Hotel Offers Guests an Over Night in a “Shanty Town”

This luxury hotel and spa in Bloemfontein, South Africa is designed to look and “feel” like a shanty town. The Emoya Estate’s Shanty Town gives guests what has been deemed by critics as a tasteless chance to live like your poor, only with modern conveniences like running water, heated floors and wifi. I don’t have issue with the conditions of this hotel, or the experience it offers. To me, it’s an issue of insensitive marketing and branding, especially coming from a luxury hotel and spa.
