Area & Activities


A world-class urban centre, the diverse South African city of Cape Town blends rich historical heritage with cutting-edge new perspectives, as seen in its architecture and cultural pursuits. The flat-topped peak of Table Mountain forms a striking backdrop for this bustling metropolis, set on a peninsula of lush valleys and stony peaks at the meeting of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

With the Cape Town International Convention Centre right across the street, multiple corporations in the neighbourhood, and popular cultural and commercial destinations within easy walking distance, the hotel is ideally located for business and leisure. Take a stroll through historic old town or explore Long Street, the Cape Quarter, and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and Clock Tower. Discover a stylish collection of boutiques, barter at Greenmarket Square Flea Market, or be inspired by unique galleries, monuments, and museums. Experience a thriving nightlife of cafés, pubs, night clubs, and a diverse dining scene, grown from the city's rich multicultural history.

Short trips outside the city reveal the area's magnificent natural beauty. Area tours range from township and cape tours to Winelands tours, nature tours, and seasonal whale-watching excursions. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1999, nearby Robben Island housed Nelson Mandela during most of his 27-year prison sentence. Weather permitting, tours of the island's museum and conservation area are very popular and may require booking far in advance.

If you have time to explore further, several safari lodges are found approximately two hours outside of Cape Town. For those seeking thrilling adventures, extreme sports such as sky diving, shark cage diving, motor boat harbour trips, and more, are offered by multiple companies around Cape Town.
