A lit-up red carpet entrance, six-foot doormen and the piped scent of Davidoff Cool Water, state-of-the-art meeting rooms complete with colour-coded chocolate M&Ms, customised kid’s rooms (who doesn’t want a Ben 10 duvet?) and lots of other wow factor features ensure this hotel lives up to its title as Africa's first "hip 5-star hotel". Hotel staff here live to create memorable and fun experiences. The library bar is perfect for drinks after you have signed the huge deal, or take in a piazza view from the wraparound veranda. The March restaurant has been newly renovated and there is an extraordinary poolside.
