Recognizing their shared level of commitment to sustainability, excellence and authenticity that has made The Brando a world leader, we are pleased to recommend the following properties for your consideration.


The Red Carnation Hotel Collection 
President and founder Beatrice Tollman built Red Carnation Hotels with a vision for service excellence and a passion for generous hospitality.
Today the collection proudly stands at 20 exceptional properties around the world, each unique and special, whilst sharing the founding values that define our family-owned and run business.
The hotel collection is lovingly named after the signature flower Mrs Tollman’s husband always wears, and this symbol of hospitality is also worn by every member of the team.
The guest experience is always at the heart of Red Carnation, where talented teams exceed expectations with warm and caring service, delicious cuisine and thoughtful touches. We also connect guests with the local destination through authentic and meaningful experiences, beautiful and restorative design, and curated art collections. These hotels are truly the art of hospitality.


The Milestone Hotel & Residences, United-Kingdom
Located just opposite Kensington Palace, with exceptional views across the Gardens to this most famous of homes, The Milestone is a true London landmark and instantly recognisable for its striking red-and-white brick façade. Step into a Grade-II listed Victorian building and discover old world charm, beautiful rich furnishings, exquisite original arts and outstanding cuisine. Just a short stroll from the legendary Royal Albert Hall, as well as Notting Hill and Knightsbridge, its leafy surroundings are perfect for a beautiful picnic in the park.


Xigera Safari Lodge, Botswana
Xigera is Red Carnation and the Tollman family’s love letter to the magic of the African bush. Every aspect is handcrafted to beguile guests’ senses and stir their souls – from the evocative interiors to one-of-a-kind encounters. Transformed by Africa’s life-enhancing beauty, it is a story of remarkable renewal. Of rebirth and family legacy, and of the pioneering spirit that drives us to seek out Africa’s wild spaces. This is Xigera (pronounced ‘kee-jera’), named for the Pied Kingfisher that makes its home amid the watery channels of Botswana’s Moremi Game Reserve. The culmination of a lifelong dream of the Tollman family, drawing on six decades of devotion to unparalleled luxury in service.
