The Square Boutique Hotel & Spa Sparkles with Hollywood Glam

On Friday the 26th of August, The Square Boutique Hotel & Spa lit up the night for the much anticipated 6th annual Sex in the City ladies only event.


This year the theme was Hollywood Glam and guests were transported back to the golden age of the silver screen through spectacular décor and entertainment. An event of this magnitude needed a vibrant emcee and Good Hope FM’s Carl Wastie was exactly that. Full of energy, Carl was one of the stars of the evening as he flawlessly introduced the entertainment acts with enthusiasm and skill.


All of the entertainment was simply out of this world, with musical talents such as Natalie Rungun and a few others who amazed the audience with their vocal talents.

With a prize for the best dressed up for grabs, the ladies came dressed to the nines. While all the ladies looked stunning, 3 special ladies certainly stood out and won some amazing prizes for the Best Dressed on the evening.


The best dressed ladies may have won amazing prizes, but no one left empty handed. Each guest received a goodie bag which was packed with fantastic gifts from the generous event sponsors.

There is no doubt that this much anticipated Sex in the City event exceeded expectations. From the sparkling décor, to the vivacious emcee, to the soulful entertainment acts and the delightful entrées and mouth-watering meals, Sex in the City was billed as “Durban’s, ladies only gala event of the year” and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

James

The Square Welcomes a Determined and Passionate Leader

The Square Boutique Hotel and Spa, renowned for its modern styling and prime location, has a new General Manager at the helm. His name is James McNicoll and he has been given the responsibility of leading the already prestigious hotel to new heights.


Vastly experienced and incredibly determined, the new GM prioritises the hotel’s quality of service above all else. His recipe to achieve this seems simple. By building a shared vision for success between himself and his team, McNicoll aims to achieve a superior level of courtesy and customer service that is befitting of the hotel’s boutique status. However, McNicoll realises that reaching this goal will take perseverance and most of all, hard work.


That’s not a problem for the new GM who approaches every day in the hotel industry as more than a job; it is his passion. For over 20 years he has been honing his expertise at South Africa’s most reputable hotels, including properties in the Southern Sun, Sun International, Peermont, London Clubs International and The Zulu Nyala Groups, and today he brings his extensive capabilities, leadership qualities and passion to The Square to make the hotel a force to be reckoned with.

When asked about his appointment McNicoll said, The Square is incredibly unique. The hotel is relatively small but it boasts large conference facilities. This enables us to have the best of both worlds boutique service and large, high pressure events. It is truly a gem in the Umhlanga business area.


His passion, determination and sheer love for the industry is evident and the future certainly is bright for both the new GM and The Square Boutique Hotel and Spa.
