Spectacular views and its central location makes Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel and Spa an ideal Cape Town getaway spot
Whether you’re visiting Cape Town from another country or another part of South Africa, making the most of your time in the city is always a priority. And choosing a central location doesn’t have to mean compromising on safety or luxury since Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel was added to Cape Town’s address book.
THE RIGHT LOCATION
The hotel is situated on the buzzing Kloof Nek Road in Tamboerskloof – a trendy suburb at the foot of the city’s iconic mountains.
A short stroll will get you to Kloof Street, which hosts everything from restaurants and bars to grocery stores and clothing boutiques. Also within walking distance are Long Street and Bree Street were Cape Town’s nightlife thrives. Next to the hotel is a MyCiti bus stop, which can take you to Table Mountain or to Camp’s Bay.
In the immediate vicinity are a number of bars and restaurants frequented by locals and tourists. Sip on one of Cape Town’s famous craft beers at the The Power & The Glory across the road, taste the wine off an expertly curated wine list at Publik Wine Bar, or indulge in a pre-dinner aperitif at The Sorrows downstairs from the hotel.
The hotel is in walking distance from over 30 restaurants, offering a range of food including seafood, African, Indian, Italian, and Japanese.
GREAT AFRICAN ART AND LUXURIOUS ROOMS
Just over a year ago, five Victorian heritage buildings on the block were connected and modernised to create the luxurious 47-room boutique hotel.
The hotel incorporates elements of South African heritage and culture, through artwork and decor in the rooms, reception areas and art gallery. The artwork throughout comes from the likes of established local artists such as Tony Gum, Neo Matloga, Tsoku Maela and Barry Jackson.
