The present vacant lot that was once the home of the Tulip Hotel, which was demolished earlier this year, will be the new home of a lavish new Tsogo Sun hotel in September 2017.

The new 500-bedroom hotel complex, located on the corner of Buitengracht and Strand street, will cost a cool R680 million to construct and will consist of two products in one complex – a 200-bedroom, modern design SunSquare hotel and a 300-bedroom, new generation StayEasy hotel. Together they offer guests a range of affordable and stylish accommodation.

Included in the new Tsogo Sun development will be banqueting and and conferencing facilities, retail space as well as the fast-growing, casual dining concept Vigour & Verve.

Construction begins next month and should be completed by September 2017, in time for the peak summer tourist season.
