Cape Town’s top hotels and luxury guest houses

Cape Town is South Africa's oldest city, wrapped around the world-famous Table Mountain, one of the New7Wonders of Nature. With its unique combination of ocean, beaches, vineyards, mountains, city, and even penguins, it’s like nowhere else on earth.

Here, you'll experience genuine South African hospitality, some of the best restaurants in the world (three of which are in the world’s top 100!), incredible natural wonders, and a melting pot of cultures that all makes Cape Town consistently rank among the best cities in the world.

What can you expect from luxury Cape Town hotels?

When choosing where to stay in a Cape Town hotel, you’re spoilt for choice. Whether you want to stay in a classic hotel in the heart of the city or you want a more exclusive Villa on the outskirts, there’s plenty to choose from – a more extensive selection than in any other South African city! 

Exclusive-use luxury accommodation

If you don’t like sharing and want an elevated level of service, look no further than our exclusive-use Cape Town accommodation options. Whether you choose an intimate luxury boutique hotel on the slopes of Table Mountain with only a handful of luxury rooms like Camissa House, or you want your own private villa complete with a dedicated butler and chef like at Ellerman House, it will impress even the most discerning traveller. 

Rub shoulders with the rich and the famous

If you want to join the rich and the famous on sundrenched beaches and high-end cocktail lounges, stay in Cape Town’s own Millionaire’s Miles at these Camps Bay and Clifton Hotels. The affluent suburb of Bantry Bay is also home to swanky mansions with plenty of entertainment.

Entertainment galore in the V&A Waterfront

The Victoria & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront is a shopaholic’s paradise and offers some of the most beautiful hotels globally, including the One&Only Cape Town and Cape Grace. For those guests seeking something truly unique and luxurious, book a stay in The Silo Hotel set in a historic grain silo above the Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa).
