Despite being a large landmark property, the Cape Grace holds prime position amongst Cape Town’s most exclusive and loved hotels. Exceptionally well-run, it is an immaculate space with every creature comfort imaginable and a full range of facilities, making it popular with high-end American visitors. It has an unbeatable location in the heart of the harbour with Table Mountain looming overhead. It is set within its own private marina within the V&A Waterfront and is surrounded by the working dock – the perfect spot for exploring Cape Town by foot and a short stroll from her plethora of Waterfront restaurants and bars.
On first walking into the Cape Grace it has a distinctive heritage feel but still retains the casual and relaxed Capetonian flair. Décor is stylish with a flamboyant naval flair, and its 120 guest rooms are infused with local charm featuring antiques, hand-painted fabrics, African artefacts and French windows. Each room has an iPod docking stations, flat-panel HD televisions and the Suites & Penthouses also have an X-Box 360. The hotel is so vast and comprehensive it can accommodate a range of guests.
Facilities at the Cape Grace include the award-winning Signal restaurant, one of the best spas in Cape Town, a fitness studio, heated outdoor swimming pool, and a private guest library and lounge. Why not try the indulgent Kalahari Signature Massages, or get ready for dinner at one of the city’s finest eateries with a mani-pedi combo? Private trainers can be made available so guests can work out to the highest level even whilst on holiday. It’s location means that guests can step right out into the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and then return to the calm when the day is over. Afternoon Tea at the Cape Grace comes highly recommended – an even better way to end a day of sight-seeing!
Cape Town is now a thriving cosmopolitan city, from hidden gin bars to hiking Lion’s Head at full moon, it is a city of ‘doers’. Head down to Cape Agulhas – the geographical southern tip of the African continent and on your return stop at Boulders Beach to see the penguins.
