Coral International Cape Town launches World Cup Promotion

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 17 May 2010

Even though the number of arrivals is estimated to be lower than previously anticipated, about 350,000 foreign visitors are still expected for the month-long 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament in South Africa.

The newly-opened 5-star Coral International Cape Town still has rooms available for the period (10 June - 12 July 2010) at a special rate of 3,500 ZAR for single and 3,700 ZAR on a bed and breakfast basis including all taxes and tourism levies.

 Featuring 137 rooms and suites, Coral International Cape Town is a world-class international 5-Star boutique hotel with facilities for both leisure and business travellers. All rooms and suites are decorated with VIP amenities and provide views of Table Mountain and the city.

Commenting on the impact of the international credit crises, General Manager, Jacqui Booyzen said, Hoteliers in the city are in agreement that we are still feeling the lag. Indeed, instead of visitors booking for two to three week stays they are only booking for three to six night stays.

Studies have shown that in line with previous World Cup events, room rates are likely to soar by between 20 and 200% for the World Cup in South Africa. Nearly half of the establishments will charge peak season rates during this time, which, despite it falling over the traditional off-season period, is considered peak season for the country.

In line with current international travel trends, we anticipate substantial last-minute bookings, added Jacqui Booyzen. South Africa and Cape Town is ready to receive the world and we are ready to handle last-minute bookings, though we urge those who would still like to catch a glimpse of this momentous occasion to book sooner rather than later.

Coral International Cape Town is ideally located in the heart of the city with quick access to the airport, V&A Waterfront, major tourist attractions and the Cape Town Stadium which will host 9 World Cup matches including one second round, one quarter final and a semi final match.

The World Cup promotion at Coral International Cape Town is available from 10 June to 12 July 2010. Terms and conditions apply.
