Cape Town is an incredible destination and one that many people return to again and again. It is just an easy direct flight from London, and since there’s no time difference and no jet lag you can get on with your holiday as soon as you step off the plane.
Cape Town has so much to offer not least a rich and colourful history, and some of the world’s most famous restaurants and bars. The food and wine in Cape Town is exceptional and you will be wowed from start to finish. The shopping is fantastic, and the beaches are wild and remote – Table Mountain provides the most wonderful backdrop to your stay in Cape Town, and the V&A Waterfront is buzzing and rich in vibrant colours and people. Here are a few of the best properties in Cape Town.
MannaBay has one suite – the Versailles Suite – and seven luxury rooms, including Black & White, Orchid, Flamingo, Explorer, Persian, Pom Pom and Oriental. The hotel sleeps a maximum of only 16 guests to ensure a more exclusive and intimate stay. Each room is individually designed and decorated. All rooms have extra-length, king-size beds that can be made into twins, with the exception of their suite, as well as en-suite bathrooms with spacious, walk-in showers. The Versailles Suite and the Flamingo Room have free-standing bath tubs as well as showers.
All rooms have a flat-screen TV and an interactive media centre, with a variety of satellite channels and a big selection of movies and music available, an iPod docking station, air-conditioning, under-floor heating in the bedroom and bathroom, block out blinds and American shutters, a safe, WIFI, GHD hair straighteners, a hairdryer, Africology products, books, cards, board games and Country Road beach bags with towels. The activities on offer are Cape Winelands Experience, Hermanus & Whale Tour, Great White Shark Cage Diving, Townships to Robben Island, Table Mountain & City Tour and a Cape Point Explorer Tour. Mannabay is ideal for those looking for something quirky and unique.
The Pod is one of Cape Town’s most modern and quirky places to stay – everything is state of the art and chic. The location of the Pod is ideal as Camps Bay is certainly the hub of everything ‘cool’ in Cape Town and you can walk to the beach, to bars and to restaurants from The Pod, as well as being able to get into the centre of Cape Town with a short taxi ride. The Pod has several room categories each of which vary in size, but the stunning modern décor remains the same.
The Cape Grace is a large extremely luxurious hotel where the service is unrivalled. Every staff member will know your name, and treat you as VIPs. The location on the Waterfront is exceptional and you can always find your way to another of Cape Town’s attractions, many of the rooms have stunning views of the city at night and the food here will blow your mind.
The Cape Cadogan is a very friendly boutique hotel, which was once a loved family home. Here they welcome you into their own family and its simple but luxurious rooms are the perfect base from which to explore this amazing city. Set on a quiet mews street far from the madding crowd, yet within walking distance of everything you could possibly want to see, it is hard to beat Cape Cadogan when it comes to value for money versus luxury.
More Quarters is run by the Cape Cadogan and offers a wealth of independence in this wonderful city, since you’ll be staying in your own one or two bedroom apartment with breakfast included, but with the choice of having a little more freedom to feel as if you can come and go – More Quarters is also set on a quiet mews street within easy reach of everything.
