With Table Mountain one of the most spiritual places on earth – at its heart and two oceans at its feet, the city of Cape Town, strategically situated at the south-western tip of Africa, has been famed for centuries as the Tavern of the Seas. Vibrant, cosmopolitan and an eclectic mix of old and new, this laid-back city is as much at home with its 17th century castle – whose cannons have never been fired in anger – as it is with its sleek skyscrapers and trendy malls. Home to South Africa’s first mosque, oldest wine farm, a 350-year-old garden and timelessly beautiful beaches, it’s no surprise the legendary Flying Dutchman and his spectral ship have spent eternity sailing the city’s shores.
The spectacular Kensington Place is perfectly positioned in front of Table Mountain, a stone’s throw away from Cape Town’s vibrant city centre.
African and Zen influences, combined with designer finishes and original artworks, have made this hotel a firm favourite amongst the international design and décor media. Individually-decorated rooms boast ensuite bathrooms, satellite television, air conditioning and private terraces with stunning views of the skyline, the harbour and the mountain. Guests need not venture far from the hotel in order to frequent Cape Town’s popular hotspots, beaches and cultural attractions. Those in an energetic mood can don their hiking boots for a climb of the scenic nature trails up Table Mountain.
