While visiting Cape Town is, in itself, a special experience – there are a few spots that are simply magical. Whether you’re looking to celebrate an anniversary, pop the question or have a special birthday coming up – these are our top picks for spots to celebrate in Cape Town.
Situated just below Chapmans Peak, within the Table Mountain National Park, Tintswalo Atlantic is unrivalled in terms of location. With the ocean barely meters away, this boutique 5* hotel is as special as it gets. If you aren’t looking to spend the night, sundowners and dinner will allow you to experience the magical sunset, and, if you’re lucky, an al fresco dinner with the lights of Hout Bay shimmering across the bay.
Planet Bar at The Mount Nelson
The Nellie is more than simply a pink facade, boasting two restaurants, a spa and retail outlets on its grounds. However, often overlooked, is its gorgeous Planet Bar. Sophisticated and elegant, it offers privacy away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD – and, a fantastic selection of classic cocktails for all palates. Whether it’s pre-dinner drinks or an entire evening of celebration, Planet Bar will add more than a touch of class to your night.
12 Apostles Hotel
Situated outside Camps Bay, the 12 Apostles is perfect for those wanting a seaside escape away from the crowds. With their Leopard Bar and restaurant both offering fantastic sea views, you’ll be forgiven for turning your drinks into a night in one of their luxury rooms. It’s also worth keeping an eye out for their winter movie specials, which include dinner and a classic movie in their intimate on-site cinema.
Voted the second best restaurant in the country for two years running, La Colombe offers refined dining at its most elegant. Situated at the top of Constantia Nek, expect gorgeous views across the valley, impeccable service and food that will leave you thinking about it for weeks afterwards. As it is popular, booking is essential – it’s worth including a visit on your itinerary before you hop on the plane. Even if you don’t have a special occasion, as soon as you step into the restaurant, we guarantee you’ll be in the mood for some bubbly.
