One of Cape Town’s iconic luxury hotels in a splendid location on a private quay in the V&A Waterfront, the Cape Grace has wonderful views over the marina to Table Mountain. Its superb personal service and individual décor gives it the feel of a much smaller boutique hotel and its contemporary interpretation of old world grandeur is a delight at every turn. Take a cruise around Table Bay in the hotel’s private yacht, enjoy pampering and stunning views at the rooftop spa, feast on gourmet cuisine at Signal restaurant or set up a whisky tasting at Bascule Bar, just a few examples of the high life on offer.
The feeling of intimacy and home from home extends into the 120 rooms, each of which is individually decorated with inspired flair. Stunning printed fabrics, individual artworks and design pieces are balanced by selections of books and fresh flowers, as well as all the modern amenities you’d expect from a five star hotel, and wonderfully comfortable beds made up in the softest linen.
There are nine different room types including the huge two and three bedroom suites with their own lounge, dining area, roof terrace and kitchen, perfect for families, and it’s hard to decide whether to prefer the sunset view over the port and the ocean or the famous silhouette of Table Mountain reflected in the waters of the marina.
If you can tear yourself away from the opulent delights of the hotel (and be sure to feast your eyes on the lavishly quirky chandeliers throughout), it is perfectly placed to explore the V&A Waterfront with its many boutiques, craft markets and restaurants just a minute’s stroll away. Or summon up the complimentary chauffeur service and take a short drive to visit Kirstenbosch Gardens, the historic city centre or Table Mountain itself.
Then relax by the pool in summer, lounge by a roaring fire in winter, unless a workout at the rooftop fitness centre beckons, and just enjoy the sumptuous surroundings, friendly unpretentious hospitality and one of the very best views in Cape Town, all enveloped in irresistible charm.
