Boutique hotel Dakota has revealed plans for an extensive £1m refurbishment of its sweeping 170m² waterside terrace.
The award-winning hotel will be working with KPP Architects to create a stylish, dedicated outdoor space that will complement the hotel’s existing restaurant, bar, champagne room and cigar garden.
Venetian fencing and stone covered flooring will create a modern, contemporary feel, whilst the addition of green foliage and climbing trees look to give the feel of a hidden garden sanctuary.
The all-weather terrace will be covered and warmed by state-of-the-art external heaters, with retractable canopies added to the roof and sides for sunnier days.
With space for up to 80 guests seated and 100 standing, the new-look terrace will be unveiled in Spring 2020.
“We are continuing to enhance and invest in Dakota Manchester, to ensure we are offering guests an unparalleled experience in the city,” said Dakota Manchester’s general manager Matt Townley.
“The terrace will bring a new element to the hotel, allowing for private events, drinks receptions and al fresco dining – when the sun is shining! Dakota Manchester focuses on providing an outstanding experience and service for guests, and the terrace gives us another space to showcase what Dakota is all about.”
The boutique hotel houses 137 luxury bedrooms, boasting 20 luxury suites and the largest and grandest penthouse suite in the city.
The name Dakota was inspired by the aircraft, which transformed the face of air travel by making stylish travel and impeccable service available to all.
