Rosa, a new intimate function venue has opened in the Palazzo Montecasino, in Johannesburg, South Africa forming part of the recently completed R60 million refurbishment of the hotel.
So named because it overlooks the rose garden, Rosa, is enhancing the Palazzo with a tranquil and unique venue for small events, special occasions and intimate functions.
The design of Rosa is in keeping with the Tuscan theme of the hotel. Rosa is located adjacent to the walkway that leads guests out of the hotel into the Montecasino complex, with an existing stone boundary wall clad in ivy forming the back wall of the restaurant.
The design lends a garden ambience to the restaurant, while tables and chairs in the walkway add to the venue’s typical European café style.
The interior of the restaurant is airy and Italian, yet with a slightly Provençal feel. The design integrates with the garden, while the exposed ceilings feature beautiful timber beams from which chandeliers and fans are suspended.
The restaurant features a deep, rich wallpaper with a striking red flower running through it. The red is extended through to the new show kitchen and onto the linen on the tables.
The chairs are a combination of some formal, deep button-back upholstered dining chairs and some casual black-and-white outdoor wicker café style chairs.
The Palazzo Montecasino is one of the properties within Tsogo Sun’s portfolio of over 90 hotels and 14 casino and entertainment destinations throughout Africa and the Seychelles.
