Following a major, almost two-year-long, US$9m revitalisation of the hotel, the entire signature North Wing was refurbished and modernised, opening in September 2013 to grand acclaim. This wing now includes a new, exclusive Club Lounge, private kitchen and chef, sumptuous boardroom for 12, conference room and state-of-the-art gymnasium.
For this impressive restyling Meikles entrusted the vaunted Cape Town-based interior design company Weixelbaumer Design, who in 2008 refurbished The Cape Grace, one of South Africa’s most prestigious hotels. That superior artistry, and that of the Meikles uniqueness, are showcased on their website www.weixelbaumerdesign.co.za.
In preparation for our Centenary in 2015 Meikles has proudly emerged as one of the most distinctive hotels one could stay in. The North Wing rooms maintain the traditional charm and elegance of “classic” Meikles while moving the hotel into the modern, stylish era and showcasing bold, colourful African glamour.
Every North Wing room is unique and features superb hand-painted fabrics and African ceramic torso artefacts using the colours of the Zimbabwe flag. They are indeed Modern Masterpieces! The piece de resistance is the incredible Presidential Suite.
South Wing Rooms feature new beds and flat-screen televisions. They are more traditional and were not part of the major 2013 refurbishment. They have an “Out of Africa” ambiance complemented by rich mahogany furnishings.
Inter-connecting rooms are available in the South Wing to create family suites. There are 12 floors of non-smoking rooms as well as rooms for guests with disabilities.
