The iconic Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa re-opened its Oasis wing in February 2013 with thirty completely refurbished and renovated rooms, all done in fresh and bright colour schemes. These new rooms have a spectacular location alongside the swimming pool and overlooking the hotel’s gardens, with the backdrop of Signal Hill and Table Bay.
The three different colour schemes include shades of blue with a splash of yellow; tones of red and cream; and fresh lime green. The curtains are exquisitely embroidered and the light wood furniture is made locally by Moorgas and Sons. Overall the impression is modern, but with a timeless classic feel.
Original, innovative and eye-catching artwork from the neighbouring Michaelis School of Fine Art makes a distinct impression. They depict the diverse and colourful heritage of Cape Town, from its first indigenous Khoi inhabitants, to the times of the Dutch East India Company rule, through to colonial governments and the oppressive years of apartheid, to the recent years of democracy and the Rainbow Nation.
The Oasis wing brings a refreshingly light and happy feel to the much-loved and timeless “Nellie”.
Spice up your winter with the Mount Nelson Hotel’s three sensational offers
The Suite Life. It’s akin to travelling first class on the plane, except you can run around the very spacious room, the bed is much bigger (and softer), the views are better, and you get to enjoy a bottle of Cap Classique and sumptuous afternoon tea in plush sofas. And the best part: it is affordable at R1 650 per person sharing.
The Gourmet. What could be better than enjoying an aperitif in the alluring Planet Bar, toastily warm next to the roaring fire, followed by a soul-satisfying five-course dinner with matching wines, served in the lauded Planet Restaurant. At R1 650 per person sharing, bed and breakfast are included.
The Spicy Life. A couple’s massage with hot compresses to loosen tight, tired muscles and your very own blend of deeply relaxing aromatherapy essential oils, allows you to enjoy your sojourn with all your senses. Later, spicy bath oils, fragrant candles and rose petals: no mean treat at R1 650 per person sharing.
