Relaunching The President Hotel in Bantry Bay

President Hotel

Over the years, the President Hotel has become a weekend go-to for locals looking to catch up over a cocktail and a vacation must for tourists when visiting Bantry Bay. The hotel, with its crisp white exterior and crystal-clear swimming pool (the envy of most pool-owners in Cape Town, I’m sure) is perfectly situated, with no need to compromise on dreamy beach front views to be closer to popular tourist attractions. If I am to be quite honest though, with six restaurants and bars to check out, all within the air-conditioned hotel, you won’t see me leaving in a hurry! Especially now as the hotel has recently undergone a massive revamp and the end result has the hotel looking brand-spanking new and fabulously on-trend.

Welcome to the Pool Party

To celebrate its makeover The President Hotel hosted the ultimate pool party (unicorn pool floats and all). Trust me when I say that the only thing hotter than the hotel’s new look was the weather. Cape Town gifted us with a scorcher of a day and there was no better place to be than pool-side at The President. Thankfully Stellenbrau, Cruxland, Triple Three, and a number of The President Hotel’s finest vendors were at the ready with perfectly chilled drinks and delectable pool-side snacks.

As if a stylish new interior wasn’t enough, The President has also launched an exciting VIP Loyalty Card programme, ‘The President’s Club’. Every time you buy food and drinks at The President, swipe your VIP Loyalty Card to earn points and track your earnings on their app, available for download on the App Store and Google Play Store.

After tasting and sipping our way around the event, enjoying everything from craft gins, beers, pizza, burgers, and freshly made smoothies, we bagged ourselves some loungers, kicked back, and got our tan on.

A short while later, tummies full and skin slightly sunburnt, we were drawn to the stage by the familiar sound of local and international favourite Matthew Mole. You didn’t need to ask the guests twice, as halfway into the first song the pool party erupted into a dance – with guests of all ages bopping and swaying to the music in the welcomed shade of the hotel.
