The five star Arabella Hotel & Spa in Kleinmond, which is part of the exclusive African Pride Hotels portfolio, is adding two 100m2 conference rooms.  This extension which will bring the total number of meetings and conference venues within the sought after luxury hotel to 13.

The new conferences venues at Arabella will each accommodate up to 72 delegates, or they can be combined to accommodate a maximum of 162 delegates. The rooms will be filled with natural light and have an extraordinary view over the hotel pool and across the valley on the far side of the Bot River Lagoon, which is the largest of its type in Southern Africa.  A large foyer area will be available which can be used for welcome drinks or as a relaxation space during breaks. The new venues will be equipped with built-in drop-down screens and data projectors.

The Arabella Hotel & Spa is also expanding its popular Jamani Restaurant to accommodate greater numbers of leisure groups and conferencing clientele.  The new extension will have sections that can be screened off for groups or specific events, so there is far less impact on other guests who may be dining at the same time.

“We are receiving more and more requests for private dining – especially at our luxury hotel restaurants,” says Nicholas Barenblatt, Group Marketing Manager for African Pride Hotels. “It’s far more than just a trend, which is why a private dining venue has been added to Jamani restaurant as part of the expansion. “With the Arabella Hotel & Spa being such a popular MICE destination there is most definitely demand for private dining and we’re looking forward to seeing the end result.”
