HOTEL Onyx Apartment Hotel

Cara Saven Hotel 3

Francois Du Plessis Interiors was tasked with the interior design of this 130 bedroom aparthotel, plus all public spaces, which include 2 restaurants, pool, gym and bar.


All the apartments/ hotel rooms at the Onyx look out onto the iconic Cape Town foreshore, so together with Francois, we decided to reference three landmarks that could be found within a 3 kilometer radius of this view. Professional photographs were taken and large, oversized wallpapers designed that appear abstract but on close inspection can be found within your view.

In the passages we continued the abstraction, with images found in nature and in the lift lobbies and pool area, we brought in colour with large oversized sea birds and lush foliage to create a more tropical feel and bring in the rich, jewel tones of the furniture.


We chose to use our UV printed seamless wallpaper which is commercial type ll and perfect for hotel bedrooms due to its resilient nature and wipeable properties. This same wallpaper was used in the pool area as it can withstand high levels of moisture and the odd splash of water.

The Onyx Hotel has been featured in a number of magazines and publications thanks to the incredible work of Francois Du Plessis. It is also one of the most popular hotels in Cape Town due to its highly Instagrammable interiors.
