Our Story

Dakota is a hotel with soul. We engage our
guests through sincere hospitality.


Our values and disciplined structure is the catalyst for
a “stop making sense” style of innovation. Our enthusiasm and desire
to deliver the highest standards of service will be the foundation
upon which we continue to build our success.



Why the name, Dakota?


The Dakota aircraft changed the face of air travel in the ‘30’s and today
it encapsulates the Heart, Soul and Spirit behind the DAKOTA brand. Air travel,
once a privilege of the rich elite was revolutionised by this aircraft.
It offered stylish service and cabin accommodation at an affordable price.


This concept applies today to the DAKOTA brand.
We drive ourselves to provide guests with a unique experience based on the
principles of style, and exceptional service to exceed all expectations.
