Cape Town is consistently voted as one of the Top 10 cities in the world, not to mention beautiful! As a city that is on most travellers’ ‘must-see’ list, it has some of the world’s most grand and spectacular hotels each competing for the best views in their location. This month’s property of the month can most certainly boast about theirs! Standing on its own private quay where the foot of Table Mountain meets the Atlantic Ocean, is a luxurious African treasure; The Cape Grace Hotel.
The Heart of Luxury: Where the Mountain Meets the Sea
The Cape Grace is perfectly situated; while a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the mall, Cape Town City Centre and the working harbour, the peaceful yacht marina envelops it ensuring the sanctity and tranquility of this iconic hotel.
The Luxury Hotel
The elegance and grandeur which begins in the foyer extends to the opulent and spacious harbour and mountain facing rooms. Each room is draped in exquisite fabrics and boasts rich furniture and extravagant finishing touches such as the bathroom counter tops and so many other intriguing details. Every room is completely distinct from the next, in fact; no two are the same, making guests feel as if they are one in a million. However, they all boast lavishly oversized beds with exquisite throws, stately lamps, intricate wallpaper, leather ottomans, gilt-edged mirrors and dainty throw cushions making them fit for a queen. The 120 luxurious rooms offer celebrity-worthy luxury amenities such as a private dressing room with fluffy robes and slippers, an iPod docking station for the more tech-savvy guests, and most importantly unbelievable views.
The Best Part: Panoramic Views
The Cape Grace is privilege to some of the best views Cape Town has to offer. Paramount sights await you in the penthouse which have been experienced by international stars. Covering over 125m², it has three terraces accessible through beautiful French doors, and you can even take in the view from the large Jacuzzi. You will wake up to the same view and experience it differently each day. Looking over the marina never gets old and meeting with the sight of bobbing yachts, Lions Head and table Mountain before you decide what you’ll have for breakfast invokes a feeling no words can describe.
The Cape Grace Distractions
Relax and enjoy the warmth of the raw African sun on the recently renovated pool deck. An unforgettable experience as the panoramic views of Table Mountain form the backdrop to an extravagant treatment inspired by true African heritage.
A sumptuous sunset cocktail on the patio is a must. The cool sea breeze wafts over you while the pea-green marina, teems with yachts, sea gulls and speedboats. As the boats bob away, the water laps at the piers and the sun glints off the sea you cannot help but feel wholly on holiday. Table Mountain and Signal Hill sit at centre stage, while the seals and seafarers provide additional and unnecessary entertainment.
The finest hospitality
The staff dressed in white shirts and waistcoats welcome with true African hospitality. The starched white tablecloths, genuine silver and fresh flowers reaffirm your status as an esteemed guest. The ambiance and setting harmoniously combine to promise a fully luxurious affair radiating with the true essence of the Cape.
The award-winning Cape Grace is both centrally located and close to the Airport. It is perfect for family holidays, honeymoons or even the odd business trip. Whether you want to see and experience or hideaway and relax this hotel provides the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Cape.
