An intimate boutique hotel within easy walking distance of Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, Sugar Hotel has a contemporary urban style complemented by excellent personal service, which makes it an ideal base for exploring Cape Town. Conveniently located on the main boulevard of Green Point, it’s close to the Stadium, to the upmarket de Waterkant neighbourhood and many shops and restaurants and, once inside, the calm and light interiors are well insulated from the city bustle. A swimming pool and an in-house spa offer relaxing interludes from serious sight-seeing and the hotel has a personal chauffeur service for airport transfers and tours.
Just seven elegant rooms offer luxury home from home comforts in subtle earth tones and natural fabrics, including softest linen on the very comfortable king-size beds. Big glass windows, triple glazed on the front, look out over views to the Waterfront, back to the Mountain and Lion’s Head or onto the secluded pool area. There is efficient air-conditioning, free high-speed wi-fi and satellite TV. Bathrooms are spacious with twin basins, a roomy walk-in shower, under-floor heating and lovely Charlotte Rhys toiletries. Two of the rooms on the mountain side have private patios with plunge pools, for that extra dash of private relaxation.
Tasty fresh breakfasts start with fruits, yoghurt and muesli and continue with hot breakfasts cooked to order. Lunch or dinner can be booked in advance in the morning, with menus changing with the seasons and are served in the sunny cafe overlooking the pool courtyard. There is secure off-road parking available for a few cars, which are miraculously washed for you overnight; reserve a space when making your reservation to be sure.
The spa offers a good range of massages, reflexology, facials and beauty treatments and is popular with locals so do book ahead for their rejuvenating Quick fix, Jetlag or Seventh Heaven packages.
A peaceful refuge from the busy city, Sugar Hotel excels at creating a comfortable and relaxed ambience, its excellent service and friendly staff looking after guests so well that it is an excellent choice for affordable luxury and a memorable stay in the Mother City.
