On the Camps Bay beachfront on the Atlantic seaboard – which holds the internationally coveted Blue Flag status – where the sounds of the ocean land softly against the ear, the scent of the sea is as crisp as the fresh morning breeze and the views are forever postcard-worthy, lies the South Beach Hotel.
On arrival, an air of simplicity and elegance hangs in this Miami-inspired getaway nestled in Cape Town, with a warm atmosphere that softens the chill in the thick of winter.
The five-star hotel boasts carefully considered and modern finishings, a limited-edition Marieke Prinsloo-Rowe sculpture and art by world-renowned contemporary South African artist Lionel Smit, making each of its 19 sea-facing luxury suites pockets of paradise. Whether business or leisure, rolling stone or month-long vacationer, self-service or concierge service; there is something for every traveller.
If waking up on crisp white sheets to the sounds of the ocean was not enough, each suite offers a balcony or private patio area with awe-inspiring views of the ocean, a fully equipped kitchen with freshly stocked ingredients to prepare a scrumptious breakfast to enjoy with freshly made baguettes and croissants delivered to your door on request, a Nespresso coffee machine and a mini-bar should the mood call for Mimosas.
If you’re able to pull yourself away from the comforts of your hideaway apartment with underfloor heating, guests can make use of the gym on the premises, two swimming pools, or hop on the bicycles made available to take in the local sights. The hotel also offers a laundry facility.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, so while out and about, take your pick of eateries in the area like 41 on Victoria Road, Codfather on the Drive, or Zen Zero on the Promenade.
End the evening watching the sunset from the hotel’s rooftop bar and your stay will be complete.
South Beach Hotel truly strikes the perfect balance between luxury, privacy, views, beach and sand.
