Lonely Planet review

It looks a bit worn from outside, but enter the lobby and you’ll find this hotel, part of the Protea Luxury Collection, is smart and glossy. The calming, all-white rooms are Asian-inspired minimalist. You can order drinks on the terrace by the long, skinny pool in summer or grab dinner by the fireplace at the gourmet restaurant and cocktail bar.
