Mini -makeover for a grand old lady

The ever popular boutique hotel of the Atlantic seaboard, the Three Cities Bantry Bay Suite Hotel, is following the example of many women of a certain age, and indulging in a mini makeover. Unlike most women, however, this lady is spending R1 million on her transformation.

Over the next three months, the deluxe suites will be delightfully enhanced in a neutral palette with touches of soft green and pale silver.  Pale matt porcelain tiles and new showers featuring clean lines and upmarket fittings will impart a fresh, new and modern look.  Market-leading Geberit sanitary technology will be included in the suites, saving water and improving water consumption.

Most of the work is directed at soft furnishing improvements – new beds, pillows and cushions - but there will be some changes that will be slightly noisier. The management has ensured that those long, lazy lie-ins won’t be affected as noise levels will be limited to only a few days and between 10h00 and 17h00.   

“That is the time when most of our guests are out and about anyway,” says Eben Lassen, General Manager. “The whales and dolphins in the majestic Atlantic Ocean and the easy walk along the seaside promenade to the V&A Waterfront tempt them out of their suites.”

Three Cities Docklands Hotel Wodka Restaurant review on Taste Detectives.

http://tastedetectives.co.za/wodka/ 

It all started with a bible study being nearby. The guilt hit me!

Grabbing the evidence I headed down to the harbour. I found myself wandering down Point road and thought to myself, they’ll blame the Nigerians.

Spotting an open space behind a boom gate, I took my gap. Feverishly pulling at the video tape, and letting it blow away. Exasperated, I looked up, and noticed that I was in fact in the parking lot of Three Cities Docklands Hotel, and I had at least three witnesses watching me from their balconies.

Bust! There were more tapes to destroy and now was not the time to do it…..

I spotted the hotel entrance and casually made my way in. Besides the nerves made me hungry. Crossing the oasis of a courtyard, the restaurant entrance beckoned me in.

I spotted a wingback and made it my own. Not long and a Guinness was in my hand, calming the nerves. The decor is swanky with an edgy urban industrial feel, a combination of brick, wood steel and glass, yet warm. It reminded me of that Russian General’s bunker. She was a three star general…

A famous Pushkin quote came to mind. “The less we love a woman, the easier we please her” My phone was buzzing in irritating repetition. The wife was calling. I muted it by sticking it under the cushion.

Now Russians enjoy toasting throughout meals, especially where guests are present. It is obligatory to respond by downing a shot of vodka, after every meal. First up were chicken livers. What got to me was the toasted ciabatta…. I dipped, licked and savaged that plate. It burnt the hell out me, but danger was the order of the day. Good grub!

Then I hit a shot of vodka. I promised the waitress a large tip for sitting down during this ritual; it would be poor etiquette to do this alone.

There were flames licking the roof as the chef grilled my calamari in the open plan kitchen. (I made sure it came with a wine sauce). Man the sauce was almost as good as the white spirits. By now inhibitions were out the window, and I tilted that bowl “soup-style”, polishing it off. I do recall the calamari not being chewy, that’s all.

Another shot of spirits and the waitress dutifully standing on attention. One for the team! Nostrovia.

It seemed appropriate to hit the puddings hard, two would do. Cheesecake and Chocolate mousse. The chocolate mousse scared the crap out of me. I came to my senses, this is how my family jewels would look if I didn’t take those calls from the wife, but first another shot.

Clearly booze makes you smart because the remainder of my tapes now became streamers for the couple sucking face behind me.

A wedding party with their bevy of photographers blinded me for a second, but the security kindly escorted me out, and even called the wife to fetch me.

I think the food was good...

Three Cities Imvubu Lodge participated in The Richards Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT) Relay Run in July 2014. This is an annual event to raise funds for local charities within which RBCT operates. Three Cities Imvubu Lodge had a refreshment stand for the runners that took part in the race and won the award for “Water Table of the year.”  The Team had great fun on the day, cheering, handing out water and spraying the runners with water guns.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY CELEBRATED IN TRUE STYLE
 
Three Cities Royal Palm Hotel hosted a “Christmas in July” in our Dish Restaurant on the 29th July 2014.  Every lady received a handmade Christmas cracker with the content being a beautiful exclusive fragrance sponsored by L’Oreal
 
The event was a tremendous success with our ladies enjoying true traditional “Christmas”.  A delicious array of scrumptious food and jolly dance from our special Father Christmas were one of the highlights of the evening.
 
A huge thank you to our ambassador Damon Beard whom kindly M.C.’s creating much laughter and memories.  Yvonne Troskie’ speech highlighted the importance of choosing a fragrance and the beauty of ‘touch’, smell and taste.  Thank you to our amazing sponsors L’Oreal, Business Partners, Spa D’ Sulis, Spirit D’ Sulis and of course none other than the Magnificent Three Cities Royal Palm Hotel.
