With the addition of a new luxurious apartment for travelers, tastefully decorated to meet the standards of the most discerning tourist, the ever-popular Garden Route region is well placed to cater to the luxury travel market. The 5-star apartment is located in the Protea Hotel by Marriott® Mossel Bay.
According to Ronel Theron, the hotel’s GM, “This area is increasingly popular among both the international and the domestic tourist market, and the need for quality accommodation is growing. It was with this in mind that we decided to refurbish the hotel’s self-catering apartment with a view to providing a top-notch offering in the luxury segment.”
The apartment has two bedrooms and a living area. In addition to its premier position with stunning sea views over both the bay and the majestic Outeniqua Mountains, the focus of the refurbishment has been on providing the best of everything. “The fully fitted kitchen, for instance, is equipped with Miele appliances,” Theron explains, “and we have installed a state-of-the-art Bose sound system.”
With a private entrance and exclusive parking bay, the apartment offers the traveler significant seclusion. But, being located within the hotel itself, guests can also enjoy the many facilities available at the hotel. The swimming pool is adjacent to the apartment allowing for easy access to both the pool and Blue Oyster Cocktail bar where guests can enjoy an aperitif before dinner.
While the apartment is self-catering, dinner can also be enjoyed at the popular Café Gannet Seafood Restaurant, or an in-room private dinner may be arranged in the suite on request.
“The apartment is perfect for honeymooners, who will no doubt appreciate having their own entrance,” says Theron. “But it’s also a great option for the holiday-maker looking for spacious, beautifully furnished accommodation with great views.”
Just a 20-minute drive from the George Airport, the hotel is centrally situated within the Dias Museum Complex, in easy walking distance to the harbour at Santos Beach.
