Tips for Staying at the Cape Grace in Cape Town
Tucked within the V&A Waterfront overlooking the purples hues of Table Mountain and a throng of luxurious white yachts bobbing in the marina, Cape Grace is built for romance and beautiful sunny escapes. Escape the winter cold and fly to Cape Town for a luxurious winter sun holiday – without the extravagant price tag. Here are our tips for experiencing the best out of your stay at the Cape Grace…
Book the Best View
Swap the drabby grey views of the UK for the sunny skies of South Africa. At the Cape Grace, you’re likely to have a view of the V&A Waterfront marina, Table Mountain and Signal Hill, without even having to step a foot out of bed. Book a Table Mountain Luxury Room on a high floor for the best mountain views. The rooms come with luxurious balconies that are the perfect spot to enjoy a hearty breakfast or a romantic sundowner as the sun goes down.
Celebrate a Special Occasion
Cape Grace offers some spectacular special offers for couples celebrating their honeymoon, wedding, anniversary or birthday. Your room can be prepped on arrival with your favourite flowers, a birthday cake or a bottle of Cap Classic bubbly on ice. Scented candles, a pillow menu, delicious platter of homemade chocolates and a Cape Grace photo frame gift complete the package. Chat to us about planning your special occasion today.
When you’re staying in a room with a view this good, you should make the most of it. In the evenings, a breakfast menu will be delivered for the option of in-room dining and you can select pretty much anything you want, from smoothies and coffee, to your choice of egg and gluten-free oats. Choose the time you’d like your breakfast delivered and leave the card on the outside of your door. In the morning, they’ll wheel in a table with your breakfast and all the trimmings for you to enjoy in the privacy of your room or on your balcony.
Get Fancy with Afternoon Tea
A spectacular Afternoon Tea is served daily in the Library – which can be served with the added luxury of a glass of sparkling wine. We’re talking a cake stand filled with tempting treats from pastries and cakes to finger sandwiches served fresh on the day.
Make the most of the exchange rate and book yourself in for a revitalising spa treatment at the Cape Grace Spa – for half the price than you’d enjoy at home! Book a romantic couple’s massage at Cape Grace, complete with bubbly or chocolate-dipped strawberries. There is a wide range of pampering treatments to enjoy, from aromatherapy to Swedish massage.
Join a wine or whisky tasting
Don’t miss the complimentary wine or tutored whisky tasting experience accompanied by the hotel sommelier, Marlvin Gwese. Held every evening, you can taste a variety of red and white wines from wine estates throughout South Africa. Cape Grace can even arrange to have a box of your favourite wine shipped back to the UK for you!
Visit the V&A Waterfront
Take a short walk to the V&A Waterfront (just 2 minutes away!) for dinner and entertainment in the summer months. You can even book a ferry trip to Robben Island or a sunset cruise out into the bay from the harbour.
The Cape Grace is a great choice for families travelling with young children with fold out beds and special safety equipment, from car seats to swimming aids. Kids can enjoy story time in the library as well as exciting activities like gingerbread man painting. Other child-friendly features include colouring in and activity books plus children’s’ DVDs, books and games. Just ask at reception.
Cocktails around the Pool
While you’re staying at the Cape Grace, take the time to relax beside the swimming pool. Created to resemble the look of a cruise ship interior, the pool is deliciously warm and offers comfy sun loungers and fantastic poolside service – it’s never too early to order that cocktail!
Enjoy hotel transfer service
A complimentary car service is available for guests within a 10km radius. This means you visit a variety of restaurants and attractions in the city centre for free. For an extra treat, book the hotel limo to take you to and from the airport!
If you have a late outbound flight, chat to us and we can arrange a late check-out time so you can enjoy the perks of the hotel a little longer!
