Set along a secluded stretch of Atlantic coast, this 70-room mini-resort is a sanctuary where mountain views, sea breezes, and heady indigenous plant life converge. The property’s original 1929 gabled farmhouse has been added on to over the years, but the extensions are understatedly modern and include a crystal grotto-style spa, a 16-seat cinema (showing classics, blockbusters, and kids’ flicks), and two swimming pools (one a sea-facing infinity pool, the other mountainside and ringed with boulders).  Although there’s no direct beach access, the hotel has a free shuttle service that makes the two-minute drive to Camps Bay Beach—and the trade-off is a lush landscape fragrant with fynbos (wild indigenous shrubbery), hammock-swagged picnic spots, and private mountain trails bordered with pelargonium blossoms.

Room to Book:

Some Classic rooms forgo the views but have private patios set in the Table Mountain Nature Reserve.

Insider Tip:

Sample local pinotage wines and biltong (beef jerky) at the Leopard Bar, which has dramatic sunset views over the Atlantic Ocean.
