Cape Town's first ultra-luxury hotel in ten years takes opulence to another level! Here, the urban sophisticate can feel at home in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, famous for its sensational views of Table Mountain, world-class shopping and entertainment. Even the Hotel's cuisine is designer, with celebrity chefs restaurants Nobu and Gordon Ramsay on the menu. The vibey Vista Bar is a hot and happening party spot but me, I headed straight to the Wine Loft to sample some rare South African vintages!
Sumptuous, spacious and well serviced describes the hotel's 131 rooms and suites. You will want for nothing, with a dedicated 24-hour butler, nightly aromatherapy turndown service and pillow selection menu. The contemporary decor has more than a hint of South African flavour with interesting local artworks and dark woods offset against plush fabrics and furnishings in warm earthy African tones. After a hard day shopping, my oversized bath and rain shower were most welcome as was the hotel's fantastic Spa, an idyllic retreat situated on its own island!
