Cape Grace Hotel

Situated on a private quay between Cape Town’s vibrant V&A Waterfront and the tranquil yacht marina, Cape Grace’s location is unrivalled. Near to the cosmopolitan city centre and crowned by Table Mountain, there’s no better place to soak in the natural splendour and enjoy the very essence of Cape Town living.

Inspired by tales of the Cape’s richly storied past, the hotel’s stylish interiors create a unique sense of place. Hand-painted fabrics, intriguing artefacts and original antiques weave stories throughout each distinct floor, while local paintings and sculptures lend a contemporary flair to the atmosphere. Bright bouquets of proteas, which hint at the wonder of the Cape’s rarest natural botanical kingdom, enrich each generously sized room with their array of colours and textures.

Share in sumptuous tasting menus paired with the Cape’s best wines in Signal restaurant, where celebrated chef Malika van Reenen marries contemporary cuisine with the Cape’s traditional Malay flavours. Rare whiskies await enthusiasts in the world-class Bascule Bar, home to one of the largest collections of the golden nectar in the Southern Hemisphere. Indulgent afternoon teas are served each day in the cosy library, honouring tradition with tiers of treats and custom-blended loose-leaf teas.

Restorative spa treatments, all thoughtfully created to help guests unwind and relax, take place in the top floor spa. Guests are invited to make use of the facilities, such as the water-wise sauna, lounge area and snack bar.

Each of the hotel’s 120 rooms, including two penthouse suites, vary in size and appointment. Some include balconies, while others offer stunning views over the V&A Waterfront, but each is en suite and comes equipped with modern amenities and little luxuries designed to enhance guests’ experiences of the Cape and Cape Grace.

Breakfast features a delectable spread, with cooked breakfasts available to order. Complimentary access to a gym, swimming pool, and value-add services like the concierge and chauffeurs make for seamless stay.
