Riverside refurbishment update


The Three Cities Riverside Hotel & Spa in the South African coastal city of Durban has been undergoing a phased refurbishment over the last 18 months.

To date, the porte cochêre, reception area and all the rooms on the top floor have been completed. In January, work started on the rooms on the second floor and 16 of these will be complete by the end of March. A further 28 rooms will go out of circulation in June and will be completed by the December holiday season.

The major focus of the refurbishment has been on the bathrooms, which after 15 years had become dated. The new-look bathrooms are contemporary in design and include new tiles, baths, basins, vanities, fixtures and fittings. The refurbished passageways feature stainless steel light fittings, which present a lighter look and are in keeping with the overall aesthetic.

The Three Cities Riverside Hotel & Spa offers easy access to King Shaka International Airport, Umhlanga, the city centre, Kingsmead Cricket Ground, Kings Park and the Moses Mabhida stadiums.
