There's a new poolside hangout spot in Cape Town, and it's looking super chic.

15 on Orange Hotel had a super sleek makeover, opening up their views of Table Mountain with a cool as funk pool deck where you'll feel like you're sitting just above the rest of the city, but not quite.

Inside, tall ceilings with a modern colonial look with bronze trimmings give a futuristic feel, while the greenery keeps it fresh. 

Originally part of Marriott's African Pride collection, the new 3-month makeover has moved the hotel on over to the Autograph Collection, aimed at a younger affluent clientele. It's marketed as an urban oasis in the Mother City's Gardens area, and its close proximity to all the best the city has to offer makes it quite appealing to visitors.

But that's not their only target market. The new lobby and pool deck is also aimed to entice local Capetonians as a new after-drinks hotspot or snazzy date night with their restaurant, which will enhance the lifestyle offering of the hotel.

You can lounge by the small pool on lazy Sundays sipping on one of their signature cocktails, and you don't have to spend upwards of R3 500 a night or more to enjoy it.

So if you're looking for a new cool place to hang out, you should definitely put 15 on Orange on your to-do list.
