investment on Durban’s beachfront and, along with the International Convention Centre and uShaka Marine World, forms part of the Platinum Triangle and is a key element in the rejuvenation of the Golden Mile,” says Graham Wood, Managing Director of Tsogo Sun Hotels.
General Manager Kaliq Essop says: “My vision for Suncoast Towers is to deliver individually crafted, timeless hospitality experiences through creativity, exclusivity and sheer decadence. This five-star hotel is spectacular, contemporary and luxurious and offers the perfect escape.”
“After a private check-in, guests are personally escorted to their rooms and are given a personal tour before being left alone to savour the upmarket in-room amenities, which include a unique Suncoast Towers fragrance, a choice of teas, hot chocolate and two different types of coffee, as well as extra movie channels and a DVD player with movie menu. All our rooms have magnificent orchids and, as a special treat at the end of the day, we also offer a complimentary ‘snack of the day’ from our chef,” he elaborates.
One of the unique features of the hotel is the lavishly appointed two-bedroom Penthouse Suite spanning the entire 10th floor. It comes complete with balcony and uninterrupted views of the ocean, an entertainment area, a large dining area, a lounge with a home entertainment system, a study and two en suite bathrooms. The fully equipped kitchen allows guests to prepare meals and entertain, or they have the option of a butler service.
“Our unique lifestyle spa is situated on the entire 9th floor and promises a revitalising and rejuvenating experience for any guest wishing to indulge in pure pampering, soul-nurturing bliss,” says Essop. “All seven treatment rooms, two of which are dual rooms, offer en suite facilities to create a very private and comfortable space, and all have a most spectacular view of the Indian Ocean. The practitioners have been trained by Indonesian therapists in our signature massage, ‘The Sea Whisperer’, as well as other treatments.
”The Executive Chef offers guests world-class cuisine at the Riviera Restaurant, which celebrates a mix of authentic Mediterranean dishes as well as popular Durban favourites and seafood specialities. With architecture that mirrors the classic Art Deco of Miami, this hotel offers both business and leisure travellers endless five-star opportunities.
