April 18, 2012 in the cape buzz

The Cascades Collection comprises three individually designed boutique hotels situated in Cape Town’s chicest locale.

Les Cascades de Bantry Bay and The Cascades on 52, which are both within walking distance of Fresnaye Tennis Club, are perched on the slope of Lion’s Head, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, whilst Cascades on the Promenade is located in the buzzy Sea Point area.

The properties are just a stone’s throw away from the bustling city, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Table Mountain and the sandy beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and feature vibrant and contemporary interiors, technologically advanced in-room amenities, superlative personalised service and award winning cuisine – all of which contribute to a feeling of intimacy and indulgence.

The Cape Grace, Victoria & Albert Waterfront

Built on a private pier within the V & AWaterfront, The Cape Grace has an enviable location, central yet exclusive.

The landmark exterior is matched on the inside with beautiful English country decor and plush, comfortable furnishings. Low key yet superbly attentive service means that you can enjoy the highest of standards in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

The 119 rooms and suites are all large, with views either out over the working harbour, where the sun rises, or over the yacht basin, where the sun sets.

The restaurant serves an excellent choice of modern, South African-influenced cuisine, while the Bascule bar has the largest selection of whiskies in the southern hemisphere.
