Founded in 1997 and headed by CEO Mark Taylor, the eLan Group has become a leader in real estate marketing & sales, sales of hospitality investment projects and more recently diversified into other investment opportunities.
The group has also developed a unique model in its hospitality division; allowing existing hotels to convert their property into sectional title hotels. In doing so, they offer individual investors a return and existing hotel owners an immediate payback on their capital. This was the model used with the iconic Riverside Hotel in Durban; Southern Africa’s most profitable sectional title hotel (in terms of ROI) and a true eLan success story.
South African property developments are currently in great demand with both local and international investors & home buyers and eLan has facilitated developments in excess of R2 billion, including the fastest selling residential estate in the country, Simbithi Eco Estate in Ballito. The Group focus now shifts to developing the Blythedale Coastal Resort to its maximum capacity and having partnered with the Dube Community in this venture, we are proud to call ourselves the Development Company of Blythedale.
The approach is one of strategic planning and building relationships with like-minded individuals and organizations. We wish to partner with those who share a passion for investing in the vast hospitality and real estate opportunities that the African continent has to offer. With our extensive and experienced team of professionals in the hospitality, marketing and property development sectors, eLan looks to the future with keen anticipation.
