Bio Statement

Durban hotels have come a long way over the past handful of years, with the return of the main hotel chains following numerous years of boycotts in the course of the apartheid era. I feel that's changed these days, but there was a point in time when I was with Kimpton where we had been carrying out a branding exercise about the hotels, due to the fact they have been all boutiques that have been brands of 1, and we wanted to associate all the hotels with each other as one particular collection so that folks who loved 1 hotel could go to another city and uncover the other Kimpton hotels. The key to producing these bars and restaurants wonderful is to create freestanding bars or restaurants that the locals love to go to, that are going result in the hotel guests to want to go too, and that is going to trigger the hotel guests to stay in that hotel. Having access to Philippe Starck and David Rockwell to style your very first bar was an amazing chance and then having Ian give us pointers
