  • Those looking for more of a boutique experience have a few luxury options in town including Cape Cadogan located in the heart of Cape Town close to Kloof Street with its trendy bars and stylish stores. The same operators as Lion Sands in Sabi Sands Game Reserve own the hotel with special rates for travelers between the two properties. Tucked inside a mannered townhouse with pristine white façade drawn in white drapes, quaff interiors mix period marble fireplaces with all white dining room of Gustavian antiques and exposed brick wall. The hotel interiors were inspired by Oscar Wilde's bohemian and flamboyant lifestyle during the later part of the 19th century, hoping to surround guests in a classic version of modern bohemia with all-white breakfast room with exposed brick walls or charmingly small pool for 2am skinny dipping. 

  • The Room:

    Just 12-rooms mean personal design details like ornate African chandeliers and period fireplaces adorned with collectible antiques and vases. Upgraded room offer their own outdoor spaces access through white French doors leading to small seating areas duplicated in the limestone bathrooms with private additional walkout terraces and French garden loungers. The cozy layout of the hotel and its guest rooms is the result of the buildings former use as a farmhouse which that was Victorianised in 1912 and declared a national monument in 1984.
