Only 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport in the heart of the city’s northern suburbs corporate headquarters hotspot is where the stylish Protea Hotel Vineyards Estate is opening its doors on June 4, 2011.
The new hotel in Tyger Valley, surrounded by the vineyards of the D’Aria Wine Estate, is the ultimate no-fuss executive stay and conferencing venue.
The Protea Hotel Vineyards Estate Hotel’s location lends itself to decor that blends harmoniously with its vineyard surrounds. The tasteful and spacious reception area is reminiscent of a stone-clad wine cellar, with a comfortable seating area around the showpiece fireplace.
Venturing upstairs on the sloping property, GUESTS will find themselves in the Great Room that doubles as a vibey, comfortable lounge with intimate seating areas and a bar that services the lounge and the extensive courtyard terrace that surrounds the swimming pool.
The terrace is equipped with a pizza oven, from which authentic Italian pizza masterpieces will emerge. Designer pizzas will be the hotel’s signature speciality.
The Protea Hotel Vineyards Estate will open with 29 hotels rooms in June, to be followed by a further 64 apartment suites in October this year.
The rooms have extra-length king-size beds, an executive work station, fridge and full bathroom. Many have private balconies.
Hotel owner Guy Stehlik said the hotel was perfectly situated to serve the corporate market in Cape Town’s northern suburbs, but in surrounds conducive to absolute relaxation.
“Our conferencing facilities are top-notch with state-of-the-art equipment. But when the work day is over, we can show off the landscape surrounding the hotel with trips to nearby wine farms for tastings. Other options are to relax next to the pool with a glass of great regional wine, or catch up with friends and colleagues in the bar lounge.
At this hotel we will be offering 3-star prices and 4-star value.”
