The palatial Palazzo, Montecasino hotel in the heart of Fourways, Sandton – a property that celebrates its 13th anniversary later this year – will be undergoing a refurbishment of all rooms and the addition of a new function venue, commencing at the end of September.
“We pride ourselves on our reputation for providing ‘the velvet touch’ to guests, and this refurb will ensure that we maintain the high standard of refined elegance and opulence that have become the hallmarks of the property since we opened in November 2000,” comments Robert Jasper, General Manager of the Palazzo, Montecasino.
Under the watchful eye of David Muirhead and Associates, all 246 rooms will undergo a transformation, giving the luxurious rooms a contemporary colour palette in elegant fabrics and wall finishes.
The refurbishment forms part of Tsogo Sun’s strategy of focusing on organic growth in the current financial year, and sees an investment of R60 million by the group. “We will be refreshing the entire experience and focusing on all the finishes and details that will distinguish the hotel for our discerning hotel guests, such as guest amenities, lighting and electronics,” continues Jasper.
“In addition to the room refurbishment, and in response to our guests’ valued feedback, we will also be building a function venue in the garden alongside the colonnade leading through to the Montecasino complex. This will ensure that we can accommodate the demand for additional restaurant and function space,” says Jasper.
The refurbishment will begin at the end of September in the west wing of the hotel and it is expected that the fourth and fifth floors will be completed by mid-December, with the first three floors following by mid June. The new function venue will also be completed within the first half of 2014.
