The much anticipated re-opening of the iconic Ritz Hotel in Sea Point, Cape Town has been announced – the newly refurbished hotel will officially open its doors and welcome guests to an unprecedented level of seductive luxury mid-2017.
The landmark hotel is reopening after an extensive R120 million refurbishment carried out by hospitality services and investments company Shimmy Luxury Collection (SLC). The construction around The Ritz and the plan for her opening have whipped both media and locals into a frenzy of excitement, and not without reason.
Luxury is standard and high speed, free, uncapped Wi-Fi and conferencing facilities are a given. What will blow visitors away is the attention to décor, details and offerings. From the instantly recognizable homage to laid back Miami style luxury, the Martinique banana leaf wallpaper in CASA restaurant, to the towering gold palms welcoming you into the refurbished ultra-volume reception area – no element has gone unattended and each seeks to combine opulence with function and fun.
