van Staden had very specific ideas for Ten Bompas, and his brief
to the designers, one of whom was the project architect, included many
remedies to shortcomings he had encountered on his extensive travels.
Each suite was to have a separate lounge and bedroom, a fireplace, guest
toilet, steam bath and plenty of natural light, with access to the
outdoors via a ground floor patio or a balcony. Each suite is equipped
with complimentary bar, satellite television and a compact disc sound
system. This formed the basis of Christoff's brief to the designers.
Every suite represents each designer's journey through their
interpretation of the brief - essentially the way ten interior designers
would like to be "Home from home in Africa"
Facilities include 10
suites, guest lounges, a dining room, bar, meeting rooms and
conference facilities The decor of the hotel entrance, reception
rooms, restaurant , bar and patios was designed as a subtle
introduction to the philosophy embodied in the hotel: a
luxurious, modern boutique hotel in Africa. Gentle curves and
geometric forms create an air of tranquillity, which belies Ten
Bompas' business focus. Ten Bompas is enriched with eye-catching
focal points in the form of African objects d'Art, strategically
positioned in niches or on pedestals.
