The Onyx

Coming soon: THE ONYX, a rare and prominent hotel set for Cape Town’s prestigious Foreshore area. We are excited to announce this project in conjunction with property developer, Signatura in this dramatic transformation of the Nedbank Heerengracht premises into Cape Town’s grandest apartment style hotel.

Neil Markovitz, Newmark Hotels Managing Director says, “We are thrilled to announce the addition of THE ONYX to the Newmark Hotels portfolio. The foundation for all our investments has always been built on location. The recent facelift to the Foreshore has made the area a hotspot and the addition of the hotel adds a modern sophistication to the area.”

THE ONYX is set to open in mid-2018 and will be perfectly positioned in the Foreshore providing close proximity to the V&A Waterfront, South Africa’s sought-after attraction. Daily shuttles are available between THE ONYX and our properties in the V&A Waterfront such as the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, Queen Victoria Hotel, Manor House and Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa.

The location provides majestic views of Table Mountain and provides easy access to highways, the N1 and the N2 ensuring convenience when travelling to and from Cape Town International Airport.

It is a stone throw away from Cape Town’s premier theatre, the Artscape and is directly opposite the CTICC, the most successful convention centre in the Southern hemisphere. The CTICC is also home to world-class events such as the Cape Town Jazz Festival and the Design indaba.

Recent upgrades to commercial buildings in the Foreshore have provided a complete overhaul to the CBD. The addition of THE ONYX, an icon of the 1960s will be transformed into a luxury apartment style hotel service managed by Newmark Hotels.
