Cape Town, South Africa
A fabulous air of serenity greets you at the five-star Cellars-Hohenort Hotel. Charming and stylish, the hotel hides amongst nine acres of private gardens, a perfect retreat after your international flight. The 18th-century vineyards of the Constantia Valley stretch out below, while Table Mountain’s vertical slope provides an iconic backdrop.
Upon arrival you begin to soak up the atmosphere of a boutique country house, one that feels a hundred miles from the bustle of the city. You can walk to vineyards and spend leisurely hours savouring the panoramic views. Yet the hotel is only a 15-minute drive into the heart of Cape Town, making Cellars-Hohenort ideal for anyone combining tranquility along with city activities.
The dining is special and we’ve always been inspired by the gourmet menus at the hotel’s Greenhouse and Conservatory restaurants. This is a Relais & Chateaux property with an incomparable reputation for its cuisine and wine cellar: we will never forget the breakfasts eaten here. There’s a salubrious spa, a chic Martini Bar, and two outdoor swimming pools.
Each of the 52 rooms has been individually decorated, mixing contemporary comforts with the city’s stylistic heritage. All have terraces or balconies for those languid hours enjoying the view with a bottle or Constantia wine. Expect lots of space, both in the rooms and your surroundings, along with a gracious old-world hospitality.
