Protea Hotels by Marriott have launched an Orlando Pirates themed hotel room, making it the first of its kind in Africa. Located at the Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! by Marriott Johannesburg Melrose Arch, the themed rooms offer an immersive experience for football enthusiasts and die-hard fans of the club.
Designed by renowned local interior designer, Latoyah Mei, the Orlando Pirates-themed room features the iconic black and white stripes that symbolize the club’s success and heritage over the years. Elegance permeates the room with sleek furniture featuring black metal accents, harmonizing with the Orlando Pirates colours. Warm woods, ambient lighting, and contemporary monochromatic prints add a touch of luxury.
The room also includes a mural of legendary players and football memorabilia that evoke a sense of nostalgia and pride among fans. Innovation shines through as the room includes stadium lighting into the room’s flooring and repurpose the Vilakazi street tower signage as a functional bag and coat holder.
Memorabilia is thoughtfully displayed, showcasing the Orlando Pirates colours and design. The space combines a commercial aesthetic with contemporary luxury, utilizing textures and colours to create an exceptional experience. Mei’s goal was to create a space that is both contemporary and minimalist, with natural elements that enhance the overall aesthetic.
