Pon Arena Hotel
Bland, but luxurious
200m north of boat landing T: (031) 515 018, (031) 515 019
From the outside, the flashy Pon Arena is an extraordinary sight with lots of hardwood, perfectly painted concrete and an aspect right by the river.
The prices are extraordinary too and for these prices you expect something a bit special. But we felt that the rooms were a bit bland despite being beautifully appointed. They come with flatscreen TV, big bathroom with a bath tub and big plush beds. The best rooms have great river views and are definitely the pick of the bunch. There's a small plunge pool on site and WiFi is available in the restaurant. A nice place, but just not so cosy and warm as one might expect for the price.
