Nice one! Supporting local enterprises is a strong part of the Garden Court Marine Parade ethos, and one that I applaud!
They hosted a craft beer and food pairing event on 17th July which showcased the range of award-winning beers and gins from local brewery, The Standeaven Brewery, and highlighted this support, while also giving guests glorious taste experiences with a fab menu developed by the Tsogo Sun hotel’s Chef Qahwe Tshabalala together with The Standeaven Brewery.
Shaun Standeaven, the brewery’s founder, says, “We have worked with the Garden Court Marine Parade for several years, and were privileged to develop a beer exclusively for the hotel in celebration of their 30th anniversary two years ago, the Golden Mile, which is an easy-drinking and light lager designed for KZN’s laid back and warm sunny days – and as the hotel’s exclusive ‘house lager’, it has proved very popular since it was introduced.”
Thegan Subramany, Tsogo Sun’s Marketing Manager – KZN, adds, “The Standeaven Brewery’s world-class products and sustainable practices, and their commitment to use local ingredients, is a perfect fit for Garden Court Marine Parade which is constantly striving to find ways to improve our sustainability standards, while always ensuring excellent service and memorable experiences for our guests.”
For out-of-towners wanting to experience Tsogo Sun offerings and local attractions such as The Standeaven Brewery in Durban, three Tsogo Sun hotels – Southern Sun Elangeni & Maharani, Garden Court Umhlanga, and Garden Court Marine Parade – are running a ‘Make it a Long Weekend’ special until 31 July from only R1 350 per room per night, including breakfast for two, for a minimum three-night stay.
