Southern Sun is proud to introduce a new Virtual Reality (VR) Tour of one of its flagship luxury properties, the Arabella Hotel, Golf & Spa. Located close to Kleinmond near Hermanus and just 60 minutes from Cape Town International Airport, the hotel is an award-winning golf and spa resort with world-class conferencing facilities. The VR Tour uses the latest Virtual Reality technology to provide an innovative virtual walk-through of the entire property’s many impressive features, which include one of South Africa’s top ten golf courses.
The VR Tour provides a vivid and interactive depiction of what guests can expect to experience at the hotel, with a level of detail that is unmatched. It allows users to navigate the hotel’s different room types, explore their facilities and see their views, be they lagoon-facing or garden views. With room sizes starting at 43m2, the VR Tour captures the spaciousness of the large, well-appointed rooms, as well as their private balconies, which offer sweeping views of the picturesque landscape.
In addition, guests can explore the hotel’s Lumani restaurant, Laguna Lounge and Barnabas Bar, which overlook the swimming pool, gardens and lagoon. The VR Tour of the spa, which offers an indoor hydro swimming pool, enables guests to visit the treatment rooms and pan around, exploring even the finest details, such as the indulgent range of Thalgo and Babor products on offer. The VR Tour enables prospective guests to explore the entire property before they have even arrived – allowing for ease of decision-making and booking with confidence.
