The Capital Hotel Group has made its first foray outside of Gauteng where it currently operates six exclusive hotels, and into the ultimate destination in the mother city where The Capital Mirage will launch in De Waterkant, Cape Town, in October this year.
The group, started with two small leased properties in 2008, today owns six properties across Sandton, including The Capital Empire, Moloko, 20 West, Villa, Hydro and Esprit, with another five at various stages of development including The Capital on Bath in Rosebank (under construction; to be launched 2016), Menlyn Pretoria, Mushroom Park Sandton), Hyde Park and now Cape Town.The Capital Mirage will have 65 hotel rooms and apartments comprising retail, residential and hotel use with an unrivalled Sky Bar and pool on the roof, multiple restaurants, gym and spa. Managing Director Marc Wachsberger says the new development offers a lifestyle in a league of its own: “This setting offers a fashion, food and entertainment nexus with a vibrant, cosmopolitan energy.”
Designed for opulent living The Capital Mirage offers rooms kitted to the highest standard: Each living space is expertly designed with superb finishes and timeless design from luxury and superior studios to one/two/three bedroom apartments. The spaces offer floor to ceiling vistas, impeccable en-suite bathrooms and generous sized lounge areas. Exclusive services include in- room dining concierge, uncapped, high speed complimentary WI-Fi, HD full bouquet Satellite television, complimentary parking and shuttles to the V & A Waterfront and Cape Town International Convention Centre. This entrepreneurial hotel group has become a complete industry disruptor in less than seven years, with the highest consistent occupancy in Sandton at 83%
Wachsberger says The Capital’s success lies in its combination of the best of both worlds – a full hotel service with the option of self-catering apartments and a host of facilities geared towards the requirements of both business and leisure travelers. This is supported by its commitment to providing an affordable alternative; a quality yet ‘no frills’ product that delivers real value to business travelers. The Capital Hotel Group has achieved outstanding success since its inception and now it’s taking the next step on a journey of exponential growth.
Wachsberger says: “We are the first new hotel development in Cape Town since the World Cup! Cape Town is an unbeatable international location where the business traveller, the international convention center and the international traveller are driving hotel demand.”
