Ultimate luxury and exclusivity for Nature lovers and explorers
The Alphen Boutique Hotel Cape Town-Think casual and classic but with Paul Smith socks. Unexpected touches abound, yet very little feels out of place at the stately Alphen… steeped in history, surrounded by vineyards and a short, enchanting drive from Cape Town’s city centre.
Laid-back luxury has found a new home on the grounds of this quintessential 17th century Cape homestead. Awaken to the crisp Constantia morning, tucked away luxuriously in the heart of one of Cape Town’s most celebrated valleys – an area renowned for its wine routes, fine dining and sweeping views. The Alphen Boutique Hotel has a rich history dating back over 400 years – a heritage this prestigious property is not afraid to flaunt in a very fresh way. This 5 star hotel brings old-world elegance together with all the high-tech facilities and modern amenities your heart could possibly desire. All of this set amidst the estate’s rolling green lawns, oak trees and calming water features.
Mosaic Private Sactuary Hermanus– Lose yourself somewhere between ocean, lagoon and the glistening Overberg mountains. Like its name suggests, this 1,000-hectare property offers the fortunate few a truly multifaceted guest experience. After a spot of bird watching from the seclusion of your verandah, head down the board-walk for a hearty breakfast in the intimate dining room. Amongst the continental options, expect freshly baked muffins, farm butter, sumptuous fruit platters and home-made jams. Hot fare is prepared to order and, as with all meals, is made with love – built around fresh, seasonal and regionally sourced ingredients.
Daytime activities here vary from kayaking and quad biking for the more active to relaxing lagoon cruises and sundowners along the secluded 16km Walker Bay Beach coastline adjacent to Mosaic. You may also be fortunate enough to spot an endangered caracal on your way down to the historical and beautifully restored “Spookhuis”. Stories are often shared back at the lapa where the heated pool offers another vantage from which to survey the lagoon and keep an eye on the prolific local bird population. Return to your suite in the evening down boardwalks.
Turbine Boutique Hotel & Spa Knysna– A once trusted wood-fired turbine power station, now transformed into luxurious quarters and chic talking point. The Turbine Boutique Hotel and Spa has been restored to its rightful landmark status on Knysna’s exclusive Thesen Island. Chrome-finished dials and retro pressure gauges complete this unique five-star space, affirming its authentic character. The 24 individually styled rooms and suites surround the central hall where beautifully preserved machinery tells tales of a hard-working past. Muted design is key here.
An undeniable devotion to balance is especially evident at the Amani Spa, where Arabic body rituals unite the four fundamental elements: earth, air, fire and water. Serenity is standard throughout with sundowners and tapas the order of the day. Epicureans will delight in fresh al fresco flavours and the Diners Club Platinum Award winning wine list. Turbine is a memorable tribute to the past – an example of retrofit gone right.Cape Town, Whale coast, Garden Route and Safari.
Kichaka Private Game Lodge– Open up to the wild outside as you roll away glass doors and become one with the endlessly changing Africa that surrounds you. Flanked by two flowing streams and abundant fauna, this is Kichaka: lush on the outside, plush on the inside.
The local plant-life is still no match for the lodge’s crew of highly skilled rangers and spotters though. And tucked as it is amidst green and game (including the Big Five), you will find the distinctive stone and thatch that is Kichaka. Each of the lodge’s 10 suites accommodate a maximum of two guests in total luxury with private viewing deck, indoor and outdoor showers, well stocked bar and private plunge pool.
