Contemporary and sophisticated
The Onyx, a new mixed-use building in Cape Town’s Foreshore that is centrally located on Heerengracht Street, combines hotel facilities, managed by Newmark Hotels, as well as residential spaces. Transformed under the guidance of Cape Town architect Robert Silke, together with luxury property development company, Signatura, its exteriors feature a combination of textures and captivating curves, the combination of white and black (an allusion to the building’s name – a striking gemstone) a taste of the contemporary and sophisticated experience that lies within.
The Onyx’s interiors combine modern extravagance and sophisticated finishes and convenient amenities. The hotel aspect of the development comprises 102 apartment-style rooms, including Studios, Deluxe Studios, One-Bedroom Apartments, Deluxe One-Bedroom Apartments and Two-Bedroom Apartments, kitted out in style for convenience and comfort, longer and shorter stays.
Styled by interior decorator, Francois du Plessis, each studio and apartment features top-end furnishings, finishes and comforts. A fully equipped kitchenette, complete with appliances by leading brands, allows for easy in-room dining and high levels of convenience.
The fourth floor houses a bar, lounge and relaxation area, top-class gym facilities, an indoor-outdoor swimming pool, as well as a spa managed by Sanctuary Signature Spas. The elegant spaces are an ideal relaxation or meeting space and offer striking views of the city and mountain.
On the ground floor, you’ll find MRKT restaurant, a contemporary dining venue serving a fresh and wholesome breakfast and lunch menu, including harvest-inspired buffet offerings. MRKT also consists of a barista station, bakery and deli, and is open to the public in addition to hotel guests. An Asian-style restaurant and sake bar will also open in the first quarter of 2019.
‘The Onyx is the product of outstanding teamwork and expert input from industry leaders; a property that I am immensely proud to have incorporated into Newmark’s Residences portfolio. We trust that The Onyx will continuously exceed guests’ expectations,’ comments Neil Markovitz, MD of Newmark Hotels, Residences, Reserves & Lodges.
