Cape Town tourism gets a major push via new hotels

 Friday, October 6, 2017 


indexThe new R700 million City Bowl, a property of Tsogo Sun based in Cape Town is being reinforced to establish the reputation o f the city as a first-rate holiday destination, as expressed by the group chief executive Jacques Booysen this week.

On Thursday, the 19-storied hotel’s impressive opening was organized. Booysen explained that the City Bowl showed constant commitment to the city of the group. The total number of rooms operated by the company in the city centre came around 2 000 or more.

Booysen also expressed that Cape Town had lately turned into a globally-competitive business and leisure destination and seeing the sights of the city was expanding.

To quote Booysen “Just last year, according to Cape Town Tourism, over half a million visitors arrived in Cape Town by air, representing an 8 percent year-on-year increase. Of these visitors, close to 84 500 were international visitors, which was a strong 29 percent increase over the previous year. The numbers say it all, as we were convinced that the City Bowl would be an excellent location for a major investment, particularly as this is the first large-scale new build in the Cape Town city centre for some years.”

Recently, two economy hotels have been opened by the City Bowl development, the select service SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl with 202 bedrooms and StayEasy Cape Town City Bowl with 302 bedrooms. Booysen explained that the launch of two economy hotels will eventually open up the access to huge market sector as previously four and five-star hotels were leading in the area.

“These two hotels have been developed in response to a growth trend in the mid-market hotel sector in South Africa and offer excellent style and functionality, representing the next generation of room design in this category for Tsogo and offering superb accommodation, great location and good pricing.” Booysen said the development had created much-needed jobs.
