It’s hard to pick a most inspiring moment from a Cape Town getaway. Between scenic drives and bubbly toasts in the winelands, the shared wonder of summiting Table Mountain, and dining at a top restaurant in the world – they’re well known for bringing couples together to reconnect.
Being in such an intimate environment, you probably don’t want to smother each other either. Our personalised service means you’re free to indulge in a massage back in the privacy of your Luxury Room, and your partner won’t sulk for being sent off on our complementary transfer into town.
You can make a date of a the evening Jazz Tour, and dial up the mood with a dance during the late set.
Book a Luxury Room for two and you might not want to leave, though. Our attentive (but not intrusive) hospitality is the perfect foil to the privacy of your retreat: sink into your bath or even bigger bed and order room service or an in-room couple’s massage. If you’re celebrating an anniversary or simply want to spoil your partner, let us know and we could surprise you… Think more bubbles (on ice) coupled by a special dinner à deux.
When you’re not ensconced in the comfort of your room, Cape Town is on your doorstep – which means some of the best food and design in the world and cultures, history, and natural wonders to discover. We can arrange private tours to take you around the city, to visit the townships, wine tasting and whale watching, on a wild flower safari, and up Signal Hill to picnic and watch the sunset over the ocean… to mention just a few.
The hotel’s main sitting room, with its plush sofa and arm chairs, suggests popping in to just relax. The aroma of our speciality MORE Coffees is accompanied by smooth lounge beats – it’s a low-key mood inviting easy conversation or companionable reading. The library here works on a give-take basis and has acquired and eclectic mix of books – one moment you could be reading about the early Cape settlers and the next, using a city guide to plan an outing to the Castle of Good Hope.
Table for two? Take your pick from cosy bistros, seaside cafés, pretty tea gardens, farm-to-table eateries, and swish restaurants headed up by local talent and big name chefs. From the settings to the inventive and often unfamiliar dishes, dining in Cape Town is another experience to indulge in. If you’d prefer privacy or to stay in, we can arrange an elegant affair on your terrace – or relaxed room service you can enjoy in your PJs.
