The funky Protea Hotel Fire & Ice, in the heart of Cape Town, has recently been extended. The hotel now boasts an additional 59 superior rooms, a techno-gym, a pool deck, a champagne deck with views of the city and Table Mountain and a fashionable ‘chill’ lounge. The interior is dominated by black, red and chrome, emphasising the ‘fire’ theme, and this dominant colour combination adds a real feeling of ‘chic’ to the main guest areas, which is additionally enhanced by a new fibre-optic curtain which adorns a main stairway. The guest-only lounge is, by contrast, fully embraces the ‘ice’ theme, with its white tiles and white furniture.
The new rooms have a modern feel to them, and boast a unique ‘in-room’ frameless shower and flat-screen wall-mounted TVs.
