Pepperclub expansion leads boom in South African tourism

Pepperclub expansion leads boom in South African tourism Pepperclub is considered one the finest resorts in South Africa

Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, a five star 20 storey luxury hotel situated in the heart of Cape Town and surrounded by all major attractions, has outlined plans to introduce five exclusive club floors tailored specifically for the discerning traveller.

Located between the 15th and 20th floors, the Club Floors at Pepperclub will include offerings such as an all-exclusive priority check-in and check-out facility, unlimited Wi-Fi and complimentary business center assistance in the Club Floor lounge, luxury amenities, VIP room drops prior to arrival and chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce airport transfers.

Forming part of the exclusive Club Floors at Pepperclub is the hotel’s 750m2 penthouse, which is complete with a private rooftop swimming pool and sundeck offering panoramic views of the city.

According to Nick Seewer, chief executive, Pepperclub Hotel & Spa, the Club Floors at Pepperclub concept will offer discerning travellers more than just the standard facilities and services one would expect from a five star establishment.

“Due to the growing international trend of hotels introducing this concept, we are excited to launch this exclusive offering to our guests and extend those extra services to those who want a fully exclusive stay when visiting Cape Town.”

South African Tourism

South African tourism has also been growing, according to Seewer, who argues the trend is likely to continue into 2013.

“The tourism industry went through a bad slump following the recession in 2009 and only recently has the country seen an uptick in the number of visitor’s travelling again,” he explained.

“South Africa and Cape Town in particular, experienced an extremely successful 2012/2013 summer season with many major attractions reporting record visitor numbers.”

Seewer added the increase could be attributed to a number of reasons.

“The country appears to be making steady progress in continuing to attract both local and international visitors year after year. 

“While this past summer season saw the same markets visiting the hotel, namely Asia, Europe, North and South America as the previous year, the number traveling from these regions this season has increased substantially, with the Asian market in particular developing especially quickly.

“There was also a noticeable increase of European travellers compared to last year, which could be attributed to the market adapting to the recession, as well as the value for money South Africa is currently offering with the favourable exchange rate.”

Seewer explained positive figures are likely to continue into the winter season.

“The winter season is looking extremely positive due to an upturn in business expected from tour and incentive groups, as well as a very strong increase in interest from the North American market that enjoy travelling during South Africa’s quieter months.”
