Garden Court South Beach gets new look


Garden Court South Beach, on Durban’s (South Africa) beachfront, has undergone a million dollar refurbishment which has revived the 42-year-old property. 

The $1.5 million investment has made way for the remodel of the hotel’s public areas including upgrades to elevators, public bathrooms and the reception area, as well as a soft refurbishment of its 414 guest rooms. 

As part of the project, the hotel acquired new furniture, artwork, soft furnishings and the addition of further cubicles in the downstairs public bathrooms.

In addition, the revamped rooms now boast 40-inch televisions, padded headboards and newly-upholstered desk chairs.

The decor and colour palettes are a blend of muted tones reflective of the hotel’s scenic beach location, paired with elements of dark wood, ivory parchment and graphite aluminium.
