From its shimmering beaches and bright lights, to its table-shaped mountain and mouth-watering cuisine, there’s no better place to chase away your COVID blues than the Mother City.
And whether you’re a Cape Town local or a visitor from further afield, a spectacular place to put up your feet in post-lockdown bliss is The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel.
“Spring is just around corner – and with it the promise of beach days, sunsets and sundowners here at The Peninsula, even if you still need to catch up on work in between,” says Chris Godenir, The hotel’s General Manager.
“With more people working remotely now, we’ve been hard at work creating a space for those looking to break that cabin fever and exchange their virtual Zoom backgrounds for the real deal: crisp azure skies and rolling ocean views ,” he says.
Bleisure travellers, assemble!
A top spot for holidaymakers, The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel ticks all the right boxes when it comes to those ‘bleisure’ (business plus leisure) trips, especially for those travelling inter-provincially with families.
“While the kids are kept pre-occupied at the pool area and playroom under the watchful eye of our staff, moms and dads can easily spend a few hours at one of our dedicated work stations catching up on emails or taking an important call,” explains Godenir.
There’s also no reason why younger guests can’t catch up on some schoolwork during their stay but as a change in routine, The Dream Xplorer’s club offers an interactive programme for little ones who have also been working from home during the national lockdown.
For added peace of mind, the team has been mindful to incorporate activities on-site that adhere to social distancing and minimise touch points, but without compromising on fun.
The Faces Bar & Lounge
There is no shortage of places to put your feet up and relax at The Peninsula. The Faces Bar & Lounge is located off the foyer where visitors can rally a for an after-work catch up, or even set up a casual face-to-face business meeting without compromising on safety.
“The menu here consists of various tapas-style snack options, including pitas, wraps and platters and the venue itself also doubles up as a meeting place for morning coffee and contemplation,” explains Godenir.
“It hits the sweet spot for those wanting to kick-back and embrace the ambiance of the city, with bartenders who will recall you by name, and weekly specials on the agenda.”
The Faces Bar & Lounge concept represents all that is good in Cape Town, with a bounty of locally-sourced craft beers and Cape brandies on offer. The stand-out offering is the collection of Woodstock Gin Company craft gins, which hotel guests and visitors can personally select from the Gin Trolley.
“The team has worked hard to ensure that local products take preference at all our restaurants and bars,” says Godenir.
“Supporting the local economy is the only way to ensure a sustainable future and The Peninsula couldn’t be prouder to be part of making the changes necessary to achieve it.”
If you thought the value-adds at The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel ended there, you’re in for one more treat with Strolla Bar & Restaurant.
“Located adjacent to hotel, this establishment has long been a fond favourite for Capetonians and out-of-town visitors to the Mother City,” explains Godenir.
“Anyone who walks through the doors of the hotel is more than welcome to pop down to Strolla, be it for a quick Bootlegger coffee to go, or a last-minute lunch with friends or and family.”
This venue maintains a separate brand and identity from The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel, offering a dedicated Sushi Bar and the Tanqueray Gin Bar – just the place to fill a glass before sitting down to a simple, yet sophisticated meal in elegant and comfortable seaside surrounds.
The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel team is ready to welcome you
The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel endeared itself to locals over lockdown, offering their suites as a safe remote working option for those needing peace, quiet and connectivity (and sweeping sea views), as well as professional, hotel-standard, off-site cleaning and maintenance services for Sea Point residents and surrounds.
“With domestic travel prohibited and borders closed to international guests, we had to think outside the box to generate additional income for our staff,” says Godenir. “We’ve kept busy during lockdown, and it’s been incredible to see our team come together so beautifully. Now it’s time to celebrate level 2 – and the opportunity to welcome guests again.”
