The epitome of ethnic relaxation, it's hard to believe this Balinese inspired retreat is just minutes from Cape Town's buzzing city centre and Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Situated in exclusive, wind-sheltered Bantry Bay, Les Cascades is a place for contemplation and contentment. My sumptuous suite has a lounge, en suite and bedroom, not to mention every mod con and creature comfort, right down to WiFi and my very own espresso machine!
All three suites and rooms are sea facing, and stepping out onto my private balcony, the views across the Atlantic are quite mind blowing. Cascading terraces step down the slopes of Lions Head to the sensational main sun deck with its 13 metre salt water pool, Indonesian Bale and His & Her massage pavilion (surely the ultimate indulgence for any couple!). The laid back luxury and pace continues with intimate meals served al fresco on the ocean side terrace.
