You might think it strange, but of all the fabulous beach hotels in Cape Town only The Last Word Long Beach opens directly on to the soft white sands skirting along the Atlantic Ocean. The combination of secluded location, personal touches and eight kilometres of beach at your disposal make this boutique hotel stand out from the pack.
The Long Beach is a sanctuary for those who wish to unwind, enjoy the sea air and soak up the sun. Although it may be about 50 minutes’ drive from the Cape Town city bowl, a long list of activities abound in the hotel’s surrounds. You might go horse-riding on Noordhoek Beach, visit the penguins of Boulders Beach, peer over Cape Point or have nip of the award-winning sauvignon blanc at the Constantia Winelands.
