Radisson Blu Hotel Port Elizabeth
With its temperate climate and scenic Blue Flag beaches, Port Elizabeth lies on the east coast of South Africa, and visitors to this vibrant city soon come to understand why it is known as the "Friendly City". The Radisson Blu Hotel Port Elizabeth is located on the beachfront at Summerstrand, with a clear view of Algoa Bay. This superb location allows guests easy access to the beaches and many of the other attractions of Port Elizabeth, while business people can have the best of both worlds, being close to the commercial center of the city, while at the same time enjoying the holiday atmosphere of the beachfront.
The hotel’s 173 rooms offer breathtaking floor to ceiling views of the sparkling azure Indian Ocean, complemented by clean-cut décor that gives each room a crisp, clean ambiance. Clearly comfort and convenience are key priorities at the Radisson Blu Hotel, and all rooms have direct-dial phones with voicemail, high-speed wireless internet access, a mini-bar, hot beverage making facilities, individual climate control, satellite television, safe and hairdryer.
Focusing primarily on Italian cuisine, the hotel’s Filini restaurant offers a varied menu, with dishes being made from only the best and freshest ingredients. Leading off from the restaurant, Tabú Bar & Lounge stretches out onto the wooden deck alongside the pool, providing an informal setting for socializing while appreciating the magnificent view.
The Radisson Blue Hotel Port Elizabeth has dedicated an entire floor of the building to ultra-modern, multi-functional event rooms, each of which have been named after Port Elizabeth’s lovely beaches. Using natural lighting and climate control, along with the latest in audio-visual technology, these rooms are perfect for hosting any event, from a high-powered business meeting to an elegant wedding. Staff with experience in event coordination are on hand to ensure that every aspect of an event held at the hotel is well catered for.
With the emphasis on holistic health, the hotel’s Camelot Spa offers a wide variety of innovative therapies tailor-made to suit your needs. The spa is also equipped with steam rooms and a flotation pool guaranteed to float the tension right out of you. Taking into account the limited amount of “me-time” that people have available, the Radisson Blu Hotel Port Elizabeth has built on the concept of the highly acclaimed Power-Plate to work out a program that shows benefits in as little as 15 minutes a day in their revolutionary Space Gym.
Places of interest within walking distance of the Radisson Blu Hotel Port Elizabeth include the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment Complex, the Bayworld Oceanarium and Museum and the lovely beaches of Algoa Bay, also known as Nelson Mandela Bay.
