Location

Although only 5km from Cape Town’s bustling Camps Bay, the hotel feels quiet and remote, being the only building on this part of the coast between Llundudno Beach and Camps Bay. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and backed by the Twelve Apostles mountain range, it’s very scenic and lies just ten minutes from the beaches, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay.

Rooms

There are 70 sea-themed rooms decorated in a classic style with options ranging from Classic Rooms to Mountain-facing Suites. All rooms have king-sized beds, en-suite bathrooms and indulgent décor. They all offer mountain or ocean views and the suites have the addition of comfortable, separate lounge areas. For added luxury, the Presidential Suite offers a large, open-plan space with Italian chandeliers, a dining room, a wrap-around terrace with ocean views and an antique marble bathtub in the en-suite.

Communal Areas

Guests can choose to dine on the terrace in the opulent Azure Restaurant with wonderful ocean views or overlooking the mountains in the Café Grill, a more casual dining option with a huge ice-cream menu. The Leopards Bar is frequented by both locals and guests who flock here to enjoy nightly entertainment, drinks and sunset views. For a relaxing afternoon, the heated pool is surrounded by sun loungers and the spa offers cleansing Arabic rituals, massages, hydrotherapy pool and much more. During the evenings, guests can enjoy use of the 16-seater cinema.

Activities

The hotel offers a Sports Buddy programme where attentive and friendly staff are on hand to join guests on hikes and trips. Walk the many marked mountain trails into Table Mountain National Park, take scenic bike rides to Chapmans Peak or go golfing at the Metropolitan Golf Club. Cape Town offers a range of adventurous activities including ziplining, paragliding and shark cage diving for the brave. Guests can also take a complimentary shuttle to the V&A Waterfront, which is available all day.

SUMMER

Ideal weather with mainly clear skies, very little rainfall and little wind. Midday temperatures will generally reach highs of around 25°C/77°F, occasionally going over 32°C/90°F. Nights are warm but comfortable.

As with the rest of the Western Cape, the Cape Town can be best described as having a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild and wet winters. Ideally, we would recommend visiting in the Spring, Summer or Autumn when the weather is at it’s best within the area. Winter weather is cooler, wetter and often much windier; there are however still a huge number of activities possible and accommodation prices are more competitive.

AUTUMN

This can be a fantastic time of year to visit as the summer's heat subsides, the wind settles and autumn casts its brightly coloured mantle over the vineyards, generating red, burnished vistas spreading from the mountain tops to the sea. Midday temperatures of around 24°C/75°F, mornings can be a little chilly at times, so do pack a warm jumper.

WINTER

The arrival of Winter signifies cooler weather, increased rainfall with weather front often rolling in off the Atlantic Ocean, accompanied by strong winds. In between the weather fronts, the weather can be surprisingly pleasant, these days are just less frequent. This is a spectacular time to see the Western Cape in all of its glory, but just be prepared for any weather!
