Protea Hotel Sea Point has opened its doors to show a fresh new face to guests who are already enjoying the light and airy seaside feel.
The hotel was closed for winter to gut the public areas, restaurant and sea-facing rooms, and while the facade may look the same, the hotel inside has been completely transformed.
A surfboard resting on a mini beach at the hotel entrance sets the stage for the new public areas that are now an open space incorporating a 9m long communal worktable. The open plan design also incorporates the lounge, bar and restaurant area – all decorated in textured blue and soft sand colours. Granite and marble also grace the new communal area that is ideal for socialising, relaxing, get-togethers or work.
iPads have been fitted into the new communal worktable, for guests to take advantage of the 500Mb of free Wi-Fi they receive each day.
Included in the design is a more comfortable lounge area with intimate seating ideal for meetings or simply sitting back to chill.
The hotel’s restaurant patio has been redone with comfortable beach house style furniture and loads of greenery to ensure that diners get that seaside holiday feeling – even if they’re travelling on business.
All the rooms in the hotel have also been fitted with new, more environmentally-friendly air-conditioners.
Among the in-room changes, all the sea-facing rooms are brand new and enjoy a tranquil leisure feel while incorporating modern amenities that meet the exacting needs of business and leisure travellers respectively.
