Nestled beneath Bantry Bay’s iconic Lion’s Head and Table Mountain, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and just a step away from Cape Town’s CBD is the most beautiful urban resort in the city, The President Hotel. This award winning four-star luxury hotel’s 349 rooms combine contemporary sophistication and comfort with spaciousness.
With world-class services and luxury facilities, the hotel offers an enticing selection of restaurants, bars, lounges, wheelchair friendly facilities, safe onsite parking and gardens to accommodate a wide range of needs and desires. The conference venues boast state-of-the-art infrastructure and the Wi-Fi connection is the fastest of any hotel in South Africa. Guests can experience fresh sea air, panoramic ocean views, superb cuisine, unsurpassed service and a friendly team, making for an unforgettable stay.
“The President Hotel was opened by Nelson “Madiba” Mandela, the father of our democracy, who was renowned for his immensely sincere hospitality and warmth. At the hotel, we aim to retain his ethos and a level of excellence for us all to strive to achieve,” says Nikki Varden, Sales and Marketing Manager of the hotel. “In doing so, our vision is to create a vibrant and guest-centric culture at the hotel.”
High-tech conference facilities
The President Hotel’s newly refurbished, high-tech conference centre is designed to suit business travellers, and local professionals looking for a quality conferencing experience situated in a spectacular setting. The superior facilities include 200Mbs Wi-Fi, cutting-edge AV technology, gourmet food and beverage menus, as well as a professional onsite team to ensure hassle-free and stress-free conferences and events.
“We have found, over the past couple of years, that our hotel has grown in the area of catering for conferencing and special events,” comments Jeremy Clayton, general manager, “So we have invested in the best technology to optimise that and create a new fresh space for our guests as well as the community.”
Showcasing some of the best culinary pleasures of Cape Town, the President’s Botany Café and Island restaurant focus on all things fresh; organic, artisanal, seasonal, and bursting with flavour. From both menus, along with the a la carte, terrace, room service, and cocktail menus, guests can choose from an innovative variety of dishes and drinks to satisfy any craving. “The inspiration behind this culinary effervescence is Craig Paterson, our highly renowned executive chef, who comes to us with a weight and depth of expertise that adds incredible value to our brand,” explains Clayton.
Armed with a choice of these tantalising dishes, guests can stroll out to the terrace overlooking the infinity pool and the limitless reaches of the Atlantic Ocean or relax inside and savour the experience. The President Hotel has a wide selection of offerings to fit all needs, and budgets.
There are also various packages on offer to ensure guests enjoy the best of Cape Town, and the hotel during their stay at the President. Adventurers can explore the city with the hotel’s Presidential Pass, which gives package users a discount on top attractions around the city. For special occasions such as a honeymoon, anniversary or a birthday, the hotel offers a wide range of affordable packages to make for a memorable experience.
