Staying at Cape Grace is an inimitable experience, combining the modern comforts of a luxury Cape Town hotel with local culture. Set on the waterfront with Table Mountain towering above, the hotel has a working harbour to one side and a multi-millionaire yacht basin to the other. With everything from kids’ activities to a spa and jewellery boutique, not to mention comfortable accommodation and fabulous dining, it has all you need for a relaxing yet fun-filled stay.
Pamper both body and soul at the sumptuous spa at Cape Grace, with its special Kalahari signature massages, QMS Medicosmetics anti-ageing treatments and full range of facials and hand and foot therapies. Relax in the steam room and sauna, invigorate your skin with a rain shower and soak up the sun on the outdoor deck. Add some romance with a couple’s massage, then sample a tailored menu in the Spa Lounge.
While each of the rooms and suites at Cape Grace is distinctively decorated, from Luxury and Superior Rooms to a Rooftop Terrace and Three-Bedroom Suite, they all have modern features in common. These include complimentary Wi-Fi internet access, iPod docking stations, safe, flat-screen HD TV with satellite channels and radio stations, international plug points, fully stocked bar with deli snacks, French windows with views of the marina or harbour, and elegant marble bathrooms.
Burn some energy in the Fitness Studio, with its breath-taking views of the harbour, make use of a personal trainer or enjoy a private lesson with a Pilates instructor before plunging into the 15-metre outdoor pool at Cape Grace. Relax on the terrace while the children try gingerbread decorating and listen to African story-telling, then catch up with events at home or work in the Communication Centre. Read a book in the private guest library and don’t miss the daily wine-tasting sessions.
With panoramic views of Signal Hill, Cape Grace’s aptly named Signal Restaurant is set on the water’s edge and serves a menu incorporating the influences of the French Huguenots, British settlers and Dutch and Asian traders. Elsewhere, Bascule Whisky Wine & Cocktail Bar is a sleek venue with a sun-drenched deck and views of the marina, serving more than 500 whiskies from around the world and a collection of the Cape’s finest wines.
