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.
Located on the edge of the city and only a 5-minute complimentary shuttle away from the famous V&A Waterfront. Accommodation offerings include classic or contemporary loft-style rooms and beautiful suites. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, mini bar fridge (stocked on request), satellite television, internet, hair dryer, bathrobes and air conditioning. Bistro by day and restaurant by night, Harveys Bar and Restaurant serves up South African fare with a European twist. The hotel’s famous Sunday Jazz Brunch is an institution amongst locals and guests and the monthly wine pairing evenings are not to be missed. Guests can relax at the hotel’s heated outdoor pool or unwind in the safe hands of a therapist at the Ginkgo Health and Wellness Spa.
