The palatial Palazzo Hotel at Montecasino in the heart of Fourways in Sandton recently celebrated its 14th anniversary with a comprehensive refurbishment that included the transformation of all rooms, as well as the addition of a beautiful new restaurant and function venue.
The refurbishment formed part of Tsogo Sun’s organic growth strategy and represented an investment of R60 million by the group.
The Palazzo Montecasino offers world-class facilities for leisure and business travellers, including a variety of tastefully decorated rooms that vary from the lavish 600m2 Penthouse to the luxurious Presidential, deluxe, superior and standard rooms.
The development team created a design that retains the hotel’s distinctly Tuscan feel. Lo-Ann Abernethy, Interior Designer at David Muirhead, was responsible for the execution of the designs: “We were inspired by the exquisite gardens and the buildings of the property – and they formed the starting point. We brought through that same essence into the interiors; the same authenticity that makes it true to the Italian spirit, while being innately elegant and luxurious.”
In addition to the room refurbishment, and in response to our guests’ valued feedback, a function venue/restaurant was built in the garden, called Rosa. Its design is in keeping with the Tuscan theme and its back wall is an existing stone boundary wall clad in ivy, lending a garden feel.
