The plush pool area on the first floor complete with new decking and an outdoor bar service which flows from the new poolside restaurant is the perfect place to unwind in grandeur and enjoy a relaxed Cape Town Summer.

The Hotel will also be opening a nightclub on the basement level once all the necessary impact assessment studies are concluded. It will be an exclusive club hosting world-renowned DJ Black Coffee in a first time ever residency capacity, adding to the vibrant Cape Town nightlife.
