Fancy a mountain view, a rolling vineyard, a never ending ocean horizon? Fancy all of that and more? Well the only denominator that will help you to narrow down all of this lavish indulgence will be your budget.
But in saying that, even visitors on a budget can whip open their curtains in the morning to be greeted with certain natural paradise, such is the nature of this sensational city.
Cape Town Hotels
The 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa is touted as being perched on the very edge of the world. Sitting right in the heart of the Table Mountain National Park, it is one of the most dramatic settings in the world.
Look out over a never ending horizon, see whales and dolphins frolic in the bay and experience a true feast for the senses, as the wrap-around skies turn shades of deep umber, tangerine, pink, violet and ochre when the sun sinks below the horizon. Being a year round destination, the climate is perfect anytime, even during winter, from April to September.
The Table Bay Hotel at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is an exclusive and luxurious hotel right in the heart of the Cape Town shore area, under the watchful eye of Table Mountain. One of the best Cape Town hotels.
The location of the hotel allows visitors to take in a collective visual feast of the sweeping Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain and Lions Head as well as the twinkling lights of the breathtaking historic Waterfront.
The Table Bay Hotel is fully geared for families travelling with children, and you have the added advantage of being in walking distance of some of the biggest attractions in Cape Town: The Aquarium, the Red Shed Market, The Scratch Patch and Cave Golf, The Clock Tower, ferry rides in the harbour, plenty of restaurants and cafes, world class shopping, and everything from feeding the seagulls, eating fish and chips right from the packet, and movies, to 5 star dining and high tea.
The Bay Hotel is further along the rugged coastline in the elite seafront suburb of Camps Bay and is the perfect destination for the ultimate romantic getaway or celebration. It is a luxury example of Cape Town hotels. Catering for everyone from high end weddings, to families travelling together, for business functions and tours, the quietly sophisticated surroundings encapsulate you as you peer out over a picture perfect, breeze-ruffled ocean.
Cradled at the foot of Lions Head, overlooking a breathtaking sea front panorama, the Bay is regarded as one of the finest hotels in the peninsula, catering to an elite and discerning guest, bringing them back again and again.
The weather in the city is incredible all year round and the mild, albeit wet winters do not keep the visitors away, although it is quieter and the prices are lower. School holidays are always busy, so if you don’t like the crowds but you still want the weather, then around the end of February towards the end of March will be your best bet for a visit to fabulous, energetic Cape Town.
