African Pride Endless Horizons Boutique Hotel is Durban's new exclusive five-star-graded conference venue. Paired with an upmarket, intimate five-star boutique hotel, it offers guests bed and breakfast as well as the perfect opportunity to impress clients or colleagues with its comfortable surrounds, cutting-edge audio and visual systems and cordon-bleu catering. One of only two in KwaZulu-Natal to receive this grading from South Africa's Tourism Grading Council, the venue can be configured to suit guests' requirements and can seat up to 80 people. GUESTS giving presentations can arrive with only a memory stick, DVD or CD containing their presentation and the technical STAFF will take care of the rest.The decor is understated, fresh and appealing - with antique Chinese, Thai and Indonesian artworks and furnishings interspersed with modern-day custom-made pieces. This creates a light and airy feel in the public spaces and is a refreshingly new approach. Fabrics reflect a citrus-coloured palette contrasted with ocean-toned blues, greens and turquoise, linked with neutral shades against dark timber contemporary furniture. Artworks range from intricately-crafted ancient wooden screens to giant block-mounted photographs of organic elements.
Situated high above Durban North on Umhlanga Rocks Drive, African Pride Endless Horizons Boutique Hotel has a contemporary Zen feel, with peaked roof structures, wide rock-clad columns, timber detail and double-volume spaces.
