Kensington Place, Cape Town
Situated on the slopes of Table Mountain, in the exclusive residential suburb of Higgovale, ‘KP’ was the first boutique establishment in the city – and it has become renowned as being one of Cape Town's coolest luxury hotels.
A sense of opulence pervades in each of the eight intimate, individually decorated suites – all of which boast a private balcony or terrace with magnificent views overlooking the harbour, city or Table Mountain. The room interiors are a striking blend of African chic and contemporary European décor, with deluxe fabrics, earthy tones and fine finishes throughout. This exquisite detail extends even further – with original South African art adorning the walls and tasselled floor-length curtains gracing the windows to create an overall look of understated elegance. All of these fashionable furnishings are naturally complemented by a range of amenities including beach bags and towels, complimentary gym membership and even an irresistible snack box.
The ultra-modern bathrooms offer a sensuous experience with custom-made sunken baths, power showers, sleek minimalist chrome fittings, an array of Molton Brown goodies and enormous fluffy bath sheets in which to ensconce yourself afterwards!
Wake up in a supremely comfortable bed and watch the sunrise over Table Bay before indulging in a gourmet breakfast on your private terrace – or on the patio overlooking the tranquil garden. Sasha, your endearing host, is a ‘fountain of knowledge’ when it comes to city dining and she will gladly share a few 'local' secrets – from the best restaurants to the gems of designer shops. The ‘Moroccan-inspired’ lounge, overlooking the pool, is the perfect venue for pre-dinner drinks, before taking a stroll down Kloof Street to explore some of Cape Town’s ‘hippest’ bars and restaurants. There is always a smiling soul on hand to rustle up a midnight sandwich or to mix a cocktail – and one of our features of this delightful city sanctuary, is that breakfast is served until at least 1pm!
