Cape Grace, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa
Lying on its own private quay at the V&A Waterfront with Table Mountain as its backdrop, Cape Grace has the perfect position for those who like to be right in the middle of Cape Town’s action.
A good choice for couples and families alike, with a fantastic spa and superb restaurant, you can see why the Cape Grace wins so many awards, as much for the outstanding service as the elegant, Capetonian décor.
The attention-to-detail is unbelievable: guest rooms are classically elegant with special touches including fabrics painted by local artists and a brilliant mini-deli in addition to the mini-bar.
There's an African-inspired spa and a heated outdoor swimming pool, while the Bascule Whisky, Wine & Cocktail bar (its whisky collection is unique) is the place to sit and enjoy the view of the marina, the bobbing million-pound yachts and the playful furry seals.
