Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge is the new hottie on the Waterfront block!
The hottest hotel in the Africa’s top tourist attraction, the V&A Waterfront, is opening its doors on October 1 with a chic new look after a R50m+ facelift.
Hotel General Manager Charl van Wyk said the refurbishment had transformed the hotel from basic to elegant, modern and sleek, making the most of available space in every room. “But while the hotel had had a complete revamp, we’re striving to ensure that it remains excellent value for money in what is a reasonably expensive precinct.”Van Wyk said one of the biggest and most welcome changes was the installation of air-conditioning throughout the hotel.
The hotel comprises five room types from studios to deluxe units and all were gutted, leaving the architects and designers with a blank canvas.
The deluxe units have arguably undergone the biggest change. They were deconstructed and built from scratch with a bath, separate shower, opaque glass walls between the bathroom and bedroom, gorgeous interior décor and king-size beds.
Inteco Interior Designs’ Gabi Els said furniture, fittings and equipment was specifically designed to maximize the use of the existing space, with most items custom made.
The hotel forms part of the Protea Hospitality Group, Africa’s largest and leading hotel group, and the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business.
Protea Hospitality Group Director of Sales, Marketing and Revenue, Danny Bryer, said the transformation of the hotel was one of the most dramatic he had seen in years.
