The hotel is a solitary and imposing landmark, situated about halfway between Camps Bay and Llandudno overlooking the Atlantic Ocean - with nothing around it for kilometres, it really is a secluded haven. That said it's a mere fifteen-minute drive to the City Bowl and twenty to the V&A Waterfront.
Crisp and elegant rooms and suites feature a mix of cheerful blue and white or stone and white detailing to echo the hotel’s dramatic mountain and seaside position. Garden, mountain and sea-facing terraces bring the views to you. Fabric clad walls are a stylish touch while details like a blue-hued bathroom light add to the romantic ambience.
The Leopard Lounge is popular as both a cocktails and tea venue and the adjoining terrace overlooks the ocean - don't miss out on the cucumber martini for sundowners. Dine at the blue-hued Azure, with its easy-eating and fine-dining menus and enjoy spa spoils at the award-winning Sanctuary Spa. The intimate pool area has gorgeous views of the sea.
Eating and drinking
Afternoon Tea cake towers are a popular choice every day of the week in the Leopard Lounge (they also serve savoury light eats) while Azure serves up a seafood-studded menu with a fine dining and South African tinged slant. The sommelier service and wine choices are superb - ask for the 'Flight of Wines' tasting experience with your meal.
Private areas for respite are dotted around the property and the hotel’s main leisure offering - the Sanctuary Spa - is the destination of choice for most guests.
Slick and friendly.
