Tsogo Sun Launches SunSquare Cape Town

The Mother City was abuzz last week as Mzansi personalities (foodies, musicians, comedians, fashion designers, TV presenters, radio DJ’s, journalists, bloggers etc.) gathered at the newly launched Tsogo Sun, SunSquare Cape Town.

SunSquare Cape Town is bringing a contemporary new accommodation experience to Cape Town.   This hotel fits within Tsogo Sun’s portfolio of over 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations in South Africa.

Tsogo Sun CEO, Marcel von Aulock, comments: “When reviewing the property’s recent R35 million refurbishment, we saw the SunSquare brand as an ideal fit for the hotel’s contemporary style, ambience and location in the city’s tourism hub. The decision was thus taken to rebrand the De Waal property”.

SunSquare Cape Town is set to add another dimension of urban cool to the cosmopolitan City Bowl area. Its trendy style and modern features will appeal to those looking to stay somewhere that embraces the individual and welcomes the unique. It is a place to feel connected while meeting, mingling, listening to music inspired from soulful lounges across the globe, or simply taking in the magnificent sights and sounds of the city.

SunSquare Cape Town also has a brand new restaurant, Zepi, which offers an exciting and authentic dining experience for local Capetonians and hotel guests alike. The innovative menu focuses on fresh seasonal ingredient with a rotating menu of starters, mains and desserts along with signature dishes like the Bazaruto chicken, prego rolls and pizzas.   Guests were treated to bubbly, cocktails and some of these mouth-watering items.  Siv Ngesi had the guests in stitches while GoodLuck and DJ Dean Fuel had everyone on their feet dancing, wiggling and singing along.
