Cape Town, South Africa
An esteemed member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the Cape Grace sits on a private quay within Cape Town's lively Victoria and Alfred Waterfront overlooking the international yacht basin—arguably the most coveted position in the city. Each one of the 120 uniquely designed guest rooms reflects the charm of the Cape region's heritage, inviting travelers to discover and connect with the history and culture of this fascinating region. Ship manifests, rare Cape Dutch antiques and local artist renditions of Cape botanicals have been sourced piece by piece to create a decorative tapestry of vintage texture and contemporary style. The hotel occupies its own promontory surrounded by water on three sides, with all rooms opening to views of Table Mountain, the yacht marina or the working harbor.
A host of genteel amenities greets discerning guests at the Cape Grace, from coffee and tea service with your wake-up call, to Port and sherry served each evening in the library. Guest rooms are lavishly appointed, with reading and dressing areas, French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony, fresh flowers, fine linens, luxurious marble bathrooms with separate bath, shower and toilet plus robe and slippers, satellite TV, international outlets for charging electronics, tea and espresso machine, electronic safe and fully stocked mini bar. Dine on inspired dishes infused with local flavors at Signal Restaurant, indulge in tiers of treats at the hotel's time-honored Afternoon Tea, and savor world-class whiskeys and the best South African wines at Bascule Bar.
As the Cape Grace is situated in the heart of the V&A Waterfront, activities abound just outside your door. The wharf is abuzz with shops, restaurants, bars and cinemas, and the hotel is just a few minutes from the city center. It is also within easy reach of Cape Town's art galleries, museums, botanical gardens, wine farms and beaches.
