Cape Town- Monwabisi Resort, which underwent major upgrades during 2013 is now open. The resort reopened its doors to the public on 31 January.
The upgrade forms part of an overall redevelopment plan for Monwabisi and is in line with the City’s spend of over R17 million on upgrading resorts over the last three years.

The resort now boasts the following features:
-26 chalets with individual ablution facilities
-braai facilities
-extensive outdoor landscaping and recreation environment upgrade
-new conference facility that can host up to 50 people

According to the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Special Projects, Alderman Belinda Walker, the aim of the upgrade is to transform the area into an important coastal node.The upgrade is also part of the City’s commitment to redress and to providing affordable and quality beach-side accommodation.

Further redevelopment plans of Monwabisi include the following:
-picnic area
-play parks
-improved parking areas
-day visitors’ centre
-offices for staff
-construction of new Surf Lifesaving Club
-offices for Law Enforcement

Much of the Monwabisi development plans are dependent on the availability of funding from national government under the Urban Renewal Programme. The City is currently negotiating with National Treasury so that the next phase can be implemented.

The City’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department also spends a large percentage of its capital budget on the general upkeep and upgrading of Cape Town’s many resorts. Over the past three years, the department has spent more than R17 million on upgrading resorts including Soetwater and Harmony Park.
