Situated in Camps Bay, one of South Africa’s most sought-after destinations, South Beach has opened 10 new suites and a rooftop pool. Part of the Blue Views Collection, the five-star hotel, now comprises a total of 19 Miami-style, self-catering suites, each offering incredible sea views.
Guests can expect to step into a contemporary yet welcoming environment with interiors, hallways and outdoor spaces decorated with art by Lionel Smit and Marieke Prinsloo-Rowe.
Owner, Tony Stern, and his team have paid careful attention to guests’ comfort and individual requirements and thus each suite includes imported linen and towels, bathrobes and slippers, a Nespresso machine, a fully stocked mini-bar, an entertainment system, as well as handy extras such as a lint roller, iron and ironing board, and a Pilates mat and exercise band.
While the hotel is described as ‘self-catering’, its services are beyond what one might expect. The South Beach experience includes a concierge service seven days a week, daily housekeeping, a laundry service, the provision of a generous selection of breakfast items as well as the delivery of freshly baked croissants and baguettes to each room every morning.
The newly added rooftop pool and bar provide the perfect vantage point where sundowners can be enjoyed while expansive views of the ocean are absorbed. In addition, it is a relaxed social space where guests from around the world are able to interact and share highlights from their visits to Cape Town. Guests are also free to spend timeless peaceful moments on the sun loungers dotted around the pristine, glass pool.
Given the property’s location just 50 metres from the beachfront and promenade, it provides an ideal base from which to explore the region. This can be done on bicycles – pedal or electric – provided by South Beach, which make for a fun and active outing.
The area also offers hiking trails, sporting facilities, surf lessons, craft markets, trendy bars and restaurants, the Theatre on the Bay and a popular stretch of beach. A nearby City Sightseeing bus stop furthermore makes it easy to venture out and discover Cape Town. For those who would prefer to stay indoors, South Beach has set up an impressive in-house gym with Technogym equipment as well as a DVD library and book selection.
Comments Tony Stern, Founder of The Blue Views Collection and South Beach: “Having launched the new suites in time for the summer season, we were thrilled to host guests from around the world, across the country and Cape Town who poured in over the festive season.
We’re incredibly pleased with the outcome of the suites, the Penthouse Suite with a private pool being the crème de la crème of the lot. Because of South Beach’s unbeatable location, within walking distance to the beach and some of the best restaurants in the area, it makes for the perfect coastal breakaway.”
