Harbour Beach Club is the second Hotel, Spa & Apartments complex developed and constructed in Salcombe Devon by the Harbour Hotels Group. The Harbour Beach Club & Spa features 50 rooms and suites, beautiful contemporary restaurant, luxury spa and outdoor terraces, complimented by a vibrant beach bar. The hotel is built on the site of the original Tides Reach Hotel, situated in a quiet bay with a pristine beach and stunning views.

Kazbar Systems Commercial Audio were contracted to provide a sound solution for a high-quality background audio system, suitable to cover: hotel reception and public areas, bar, restaurant, function room and outside terraces.
The sound system design was provided by Phil Darke, the Systems Architect of Kazbar. The design was developed from the final floor plans and details supplied by the Building Architects and Mains & Electrical Contractors.

The audio equipment rack is situated in the basement plant room alongside further IT control systems, our design incorporated cable runs from basement area to all required zones around the premises. The system included Audac amplifiers and zone mixers wired to the hotel’s IT infrastructure, all controllable by an App. This allows for greater flexibility and control for the hotel management, enabling them to have immediate access to the various music sources and zone volume controls.

The restaurant has a contemporary and light feel, and the speakers were required to compliment the restaurant in a discreet manner, providing a comfortable background sound coverage throughout the room.

The function room is an extension of the restaurant area used for social events, meetings and ceremonies. For this room Kazbar supplied additional Audac wall mount speakers along with ceiling speakers to provide an even sound distribution throughout the location with the flexibility of using the audio system for entertainment purposes, such as DJ’s and smaller concerts. This room is connected to the background system of the restaurant, but can perform independently when required.






Outdoor Terrace and Bay Area

The outdoor terrace unites the restaurant with the outside through large glass doors and provides a beautiful panoramic view of the Salcombe bay. The hotel required a system that would provide subtle background music to make the outdoor area more secluded. Kazbar Systems supplied a discrete high-quality solution connected to an individual zone for easy and independent control.
