THE FOUNDER

Analjit Signh

An international entrepreneur of Indian origin, an intrepid traveller and a true citizen of the world, Analjit Singh (aka BAS) is the visionary behind the Leeu Collection. The Afrikaans word leeu (meaning lion) is the Sanskrit derivation of Singh, and the perfect link between the hospitality portfolio and the man. BAS is the founding chairman of Max India Limited, with interests in life insurance (Max Life), healthcare (Max Healthcare), health insurance (Max Bupa) and senior living (Antara).

His love affair with South Africa started when he first visited the country for the FIFA Soccer World Cup in 2010. BAS visited Cape Town and ventured into the Cape winelands, where he felt "a deep sense of belonging, of energy, a sense of place" in the valley of Franschhoek. Although the journey began in South Africa, the international expansions are aligned with the growing hospitality footprint of the Leeu Collection’s founder.

The pillars of the Leeu Collection are curated art collections, distinct architecture and design, manicured and detailed landscaping, spectacular views, intuitive service, and outstanding food and wine experiences, providing guests with a truly unique, unrivalled experience.
