Camissa House

Camissa House

 

General

Framed by the iconic Table Mountain and celebrating uninterrupted views of the city of Cape Town below, a more spectacular location for a luxury hotel quite simply doesn’t exist. An eclectic mix of intimate luxury and inspired design elevates Camissa House to an experiential masterpiece. Sister to the award-winning MannaBay Hotel, Camissa House is destined to take the world by storm. Camissa, a name given to this area of Cape Town by its first inhabitants, the Khoi people, means “Place of Sweet Water.” It is this life-giving stream, flowing directly past our hotel, which prompted the Dutch to settle here, thus giving birth to the city of Cape Town as we know it today.

Stepping out of the hotel, it is not hard to see where Camissa House’s design inspiration has been sourced. Table Mountain is on our doorstep and is the canvas for the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the world’s great centres of terrestrial biodiversity.

Camissa House is a celebration of Africa’s Cape, its heritage, its meandering history connecting mountain and sea, past to future and humanity to the earth.

Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa

 

General

The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world. On one side, a line of majestic mountains – The Twelve Apostles – reaches towards the heavens; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park. We’ll even pack you a picnic.

And yet this luxury 5-star boutique hotel is just a few minutes from worldly, cosmopolitan Cape Town. City-centre theatres and art galleries, plus the shops and restaurants of the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront are only 15 minutes away via our complimentary car transfer service – quicker still if you use our helipad.

Nearest of all is the elegant area of Camps Bay with its beautiful golden beaches. Or, if you prefer adventure to sun-soaked relaxation, we can arrange sea fishing, shark and scuba diving, or whale watching trips.

Further afield are the Cape Winelands (private tours by arrangement), notably the town of Hermanus where you can visit one of SA’s leading boutique vineyards, Bouchard Finlayson, see whales from the shore and, beyond that, the ancient tip of Africa where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet.

Grootbos Forest Lodge

Grootbos Forest Lodge

 

General

With breathtaking panoramic views of mountain and sea, Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is a luxurious pristine paradise showcasing the splendour of the Cape Floral Kingdom and the incredible marine life of the southern tip of Africa.

Situated 2 hours from Cape Town, Grootbos is the perfect base to discover all the magnificent attractions of the Cape, offering an extensive variety of guided experiences and luxurious facilities.

Nestled in an ancient Milkwood forest surrounded by rolling hills of fynbos and majestic mountains, the accommodation and lodges at Grootbos offer a complete immersion into the pristine natural surroundings within the gentle embrace of comfort and luxury.

The Forest Lodge is a masterpiece of sophisticated and contemporary design, reflecting the breathtaking natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. The clean lines, high ceilings and large windows frame and accentuate the incredible sweeping views across the rolling hills of fynbos and the whale sanctuary of Walker Bay beyond. On a clear day, it’s possible to see all the way to Cape Point! Orientated towards the setting sun, every evening offers another grand spectacle of light and colour.

One-Bedroom Luxury Suite

Each suite features a spacious bedroom with en-suite bathroom with double washbasins, double shower and bath, separate lounge with tea & coffee making facilities and a separate bathroom, minibar, cosy fireplace, flatscreen TV and DVD player for in-room entertainment. The spacious suites open out onto a private deck with outside showers overlooking Walker Bay. Two of the 16 Suites do have a private plunge pool on the deck (no additional costs).

Activities at Grootbos

Horse Riding on the Reserve

There’s something special about seeing a place on horseback. Take a slow trot as you appreciate the views or ride down the sweeping sand dunes, the fresh air filling your lungs and exhilaration pumping through your veins.

Beach Horse Riding

We also offer a 3-hour beach horse ride along the Walker Bay coastline. The gentle ride starts in the fynbos through the dunes and then onto the beach. The beach is ideal for a gallop or a gentle canter. The Beach outride is not part of the standard Grootbos activities included in the rates and this activity is advised for experienced riders only.

Beach Horse Riding is not part of the standard Grootbos activities included in your rate.

Land-based Whale Watching (June- December)

The Southern Right whales visit Walker Bay each year and being witness to them in action whilst they breach and blow is a very special experience to observe.These peaceful giants of the deep come to Walker Bay to mate and calf in the sanctuary of the Bay.. The Walker Bay rocky outcrops offer close viewing points from elevated positions.The Grootbos guides know all the best spots and this guided experience is an experience of a lifetime.

Shark Cage Diving

One of the most exciting experiences at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is the Great White Shark cage diving. Gansbaai has the reputation for being the shark capital of the world. Divers and adventurers travel from all over the world to watch this magnificent creature in the waters around Dyer Island. Every day a number of boats leave Kleinbaai harbour to spend a few hours on the water to view the Great White Sharks from the boat or to go diving in a cage with these elegant and large predators. This is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!

Shark Cage Diving is not part of the standard Grootbos activities included in your rate.

4×4 Flower Safari

Keep still, listen intently and you’ll be amazed at the things you learn on a botanical safari. With the richest temperate flora in the world and six completely new species never discovered by science before, your time at Grootbos will mean that you’ll never look at plants and flowers in quite the same way again.

Beach Excursion

As a guest at Grootbos, there are so many different ways to enjoy the beach. You can take a long, relaxing walk on a solitary shore; laze in the sun on the luxurious white sand; or explore the unique coastal ecosystem while looking out for frolicking whales.

Grootbos also offers guided beach tours where you can learn about the unique intertidal ecosystem; the abundant marine life; the coastal vegetation; and the geological forces that gave this coast its dramatic form.

Bird Watching

A Bird’s eyeview of Birding at Grootbos

Birding is akin to stargazing. On cloudless days, you see a myriad of these jewels flickering and floating in the sky, and once you know where and what to look for, you are transfixed by the ethereal pattern and order in their endless motion.

Klipgat Cave – an echo of early man

The Klipgat Cave outside De Kelders evokes vivid images of pre-historic times when modern man lived haply in symbiotic harmony with nature off the bounty of land and sea when the coastline was still kilometres away. This historical site in the Walker Bay was home to Middle Stone Age peoples some 70 000 to 80 000 years ago when large antelope such as black wildebeest and the extinct “blaauwbok” still abounded in the bay where dolphins, seals and whales now flourish.

Walks and Hikes

Enjoy an entrancing stroll through our Milkwood forest or a more revitalising hike up our fynbos-clad mountains, as you begin to understand what makes Grootbos quite so special. From a sunbird sipping from a flower to an ocean vista that leaves you breathless, surprises await you around every corner.

Trails are all well marked and you can choose between self-guided walks or guided walks, to learn more about these fascinating and secretive eco-systems. Gaze into the petals of a King Protea, breathe in the blackcurrant scent of buchu or simply listen to the exquisite silence that surrounds you

MannaBay

MannaBay

You can’t get much closer to Table Mountain than this… A truly extraordinary luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town, MannaBay is a gateway to the table-topped landmark and its natural mystique. Quite literally. A gate leads directly from MannaBay’s grounds to the Table Mountain National Park.

From this prime setting, becoming of Persian Princes, Orchid Hunters and Heroic Explorers alike, you can look out over the Mother City, across her cityscape to the Atlantic Ocean. The views are dazzling whether you’re breakfasting at The MannaBay Café, with its floor-to-ceiling glass windows; bathing in the Black & White Room’s semi-frosted shower; or taking a dip in Pom Pom’s private plunge pool. The Mountain is never far from sight either. She watches over MannaBay from above, eyeing guests clinking champagne flutes at the rooftop Atlas Bar and the koi spyhopping like whales out of the pond of fairy moss. From MannaBay, you can experience the Mother City in comfort and privacy, with a team of friendly staff dedicated to making every guest’s experience as special as possible. MannaBay is a work of art that inspires, enlivens and delights every guest who has the pleasure of entering its tall, art-adorned walls. We think you’ll agree…

The team at MannaBay is dedicated to optimising every guest’s experience – nowhere will this be more apparent than at the breakfast table. Breakfast is a decadent and indulgent affair crammed full of fruits, cheeses, freshly squeezed juices, Africa’s finest single roast coffees, freshly baked breads and of course a selection of hot dishes.

“Some places to stay form a part of your journey, MannaBay guests have already arrived.”

MannaBay has been selected for the Greenwood Guide to South Africa: B&Bs, guest-houses, lodges and self-catering cottages personally visited by the authors and chosen for their charm, character and for the exceptional friendliness of the owners.

Room types 

Versailles Suite

Try and find a bed more well-appointed than the day bed on Versailles’ private balcony. Overlooking the city and harbour beyond, Versailles is our premier suite, inspired by the regal splendour of the Palace of Versailles and the Ancien Régime in France. This suite would have made Louis XIV cerise pink with envy.

Sure, the four-poster day bed is fit for happy honeymooners who wish to slumber beneath the stars, but there’s no need to wait for wedding bells to enjoy it. Luxury like this comes with a “Because I’m worth it” disclaimer. Inside, the four-poster mirror bed, framed by royal blue and silver fleur-de-lis wall paper, is just as special. Relax with a drink from the mini bar, whether Bombay Sapphire gin, wine or whisky, or a caffeine fix from the George Clooney-approved Nespresso machine – rusks provided.

You’ll have your own private sitting room, a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom big enough for a few juggling and cartwheeling court jesters. Oh and there’s also a shower and a deep, opulent free-standing bath for the royal couple, with a throne chair for the lady-in-waiting.

Black and White – Luxury Room

The clue is in the name. One of MannaBay’s more contemporary suites, Black & White has a private balcony that face the mountain. Unwind on the outdoor furniture and let your body clock re-set to African time. Beautiful framed zebra hide prints decorate the wall, alongside dramatic black and white photographs. Even the orchids match the theme… Here on MannaBay’s top floor, you can look out over the Table Mountain National Park from your extra-length king-size bed.

Luxury Explorer – Luxury Room

Were they still alive today, the great explorers of yesteryear would have laid down their compasses and sea-weary heads here in MannaBay’s Explorer Room during a sojourn in the Cape. Pioneering explorers like Bartholemeu Dias, who discovered our Cape of Good Hope, for instance.

To rediscover the adventurer in you, follow the hotel stairs to the middle floor, where views of Signal Hill and the city shine in through floor-to-ceiling windows. You can even glimpse the outdoors (as far as the Atlantic Ocean) as you bathe in the en-suite’s marble walk-in shower.

Sailing ships adorn the walls, nguni cattle rugs the floors. You’ll find a writing desk, complete with magnifying glass, a typewriter atop a sea-faring war chest, and a luxurious king-size bed to unwind into after a day of exploring the urban jungles of the Mother City.

Pom Pom – Luxury Room

Pom Pom shares its private courtyard garden with a rather spectacular porcupine who keeps watch over the plunge pool reserved for Pom Pom’s own mermaids and men. Tucked away on the lower level of the three-tiered MannaBay, Pom Pom is a natural paradise fluttering with indigenous fauna and flora.

On the walls inside you’ll find pom poms, the flower theme continuing on through to the secret garden outside where wild plants frame the Mother City in the distance. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors let you glimpse all from the comfort of your extra length king-size bed, as little sunbirds sing to you from their framed nests on the walls.

Orchid – Luxury Room

Orchid hunters need look no further. You’re bound to breathe a little easier as you enter this Garden of Orchid Eden.

Varietals of the unique and fragile plants decorate the walls of this luxury bedroom and its en-suite bathroom. Their deep purple hues compliment the crisp white linen of the twin beds, the white marble floors and the white shutters. Here on the upper level, large sliding doors open onto an earthy wooden balcony with cushy outdoor sofas and a front row seat to Table Mountain.

 

Sip freshly-brewed herbal teas or chilled champers beneath the garden umbrella, with interruptions only from the sounds of resident swallows and the smells of orchids in bloom.
