    Keeping in line with the hotel’s sustainability journey, the new features incorporate local artists, pieces and furnishings that focus on reducing their environmental impact. The simple and elegant high tables, give a clean and sophisticated look, with tall seating almost floating alongside. A showstopping Cape Winelands backdrop from Cara Saven Wall Design, and beautifully illustrated by local artist, Michael Chandler effortlessly completes the space that flows into the bar area. Oak café tables create a stylish setting for comfort and conversations, while touches of uplifting mustard, in the form of upcycled couches, add a playful pop of colour to the sophisticated emerald and grey space.
