MannaBay is perfect for a special honeymoon or anniversary getaway. The extensive staircases do mean that it may not be the first choice for older travellers and children, but this must certainly be classed as one of Cape Town’s finest hotels.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Located just 20 minutes from the airport and only 3km from the city centre, MannaBay is a truly extraordinary boutique hotel. Quite literally, you cannot get much closer to Table Mountain than this – a private gate leads directly from the garden to Table Mountain National Park.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
This is Cape Town’s highest hotel and the views over the Mother City and the Atlantic Ocean beyond are simply breathtaking. They will dazzle you whether you’re breakfasting at the MannaBay Café with its floor-to-ceiling glass windows, or clinking champagne flutes at the rooftop Atlas Bar.
The property consists of just seven luxury rooms and one suite, ensuring privacy and exclusivity. Each has been individually designed and decorated in wonderful extravagance by local interior designer Joe Jacob. Every detail has been carefully thought out and executed.
This place is all about the little touches. The high tea here has become something of legend, served complete with local bubbly. An enticing pool and well-equipped gym are also available for more active guests.
