We love this property for its incredible location, glamorous aura and laidback atmosphere. It is a real favourite of ours in Cape Town. Dolphins and whales can often be spotted from your room or the pool area. The lounge and dining areas look out onto a rim-flow pool and terrace that has been frequently used by filmmakers and fashion photographers.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
This contemporary house has a sheltered, wind-free location high up on Lion’s Head, overlooking the exclusive suburb of Bantry Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
A masterpiece of contemporary design, built in 2003, the property comprises just seven suites spread over five stories. All suites enjoy at least partial sea views, although two of the suites do not have balconies. The two-bedroom suite is more than a hotel room – it is a full 130-square metre apartment with its own pool, kitchen and lounge. This offers the ideal solution for small families or couples travelling together.
52 De Wet Private Hotel is run by an English couple who dedicate themselves to making your stay in Cape Town truly memorable. They are happy to help with onward travel plans, car rental, and restaurant and entertainment reservations. Meals here are prepared by a Michelin-trained chef, whether it be breakfasts or fine-dining dinners. Sundowners and canapés are enjoyed on the terrace every evening. Finally, Langaro Spa runs an express service, and a range of spa treatments can be carried out from a therapy room or the comfort of your own suite.
