Cape Town's Exquisite Surprises and Luxurious Experiences

A monthly growing sneak peek into the lavish things to do and luxury lifestyle of the Mother City’s elite visitors

Lasest Update: 31 July 2019

Cape Town is the destination where the powerful Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Majestic mountains cocoon the city, cerulean waves hugs its breathtaking shores and its skies erupt in symphonies of dusty pink, crimson and violet at dusk.

With its iconic views and pulsating hub of unique culture, it comes as no surprise that our city is nothing less than magical.

ACTUAL HOLLYWOOD-CALIBRE COSTUME RENTALS
Experience authentic stage and screen vintage costumes by Emmy- and SAFTA-nominated designers (and Oscars panel judge). From the company that made the costumes for District 9, Chappie, Dredd, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom and America: The Story of the US, hire everything from pirate outfits to 18th Century Dynasty dresses the Theatre and Film Costume Workshop. Also check out their Wednesday 25% off costume hire special.

And the movie thing? Totally real. Here's just one of the hundreds of recent productions they've worked on:


6 Upper Camp Road | Maitland | +27 (0)21 510 4007 | tfcw@iafrica.com

Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel & Spa is the definition of luxury. Located at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain in the heart of Tamboerskloof on bustling Kloof Nek road, this CBD-based heritage 52-room accommodation spot comprises a spa (offering award-winning treatments), infrared sauna, Jacuzzi, low-impact fitness room and rooftop bar (boasting uninterrupted 360-degree views of the Mother City). What’s more, each room is fitted with high-speed fibre WI-FI, Ultra HD 42" TV with extensive channel selection, Nespresso machines, large rain showers, electronic safes, air conditioning as well as beautiful original fireplaces or pressed ceilings and guests also have access to the plunge pool, private sun deck, library and art gallery. Wow! – to say the least.

LUXURY YACHTS AND MORE ON WATER

Set sail aboard the Princess Emma, just one of the many luxurious yachts ready to cruise to your destination of choice. Whether you’re celebrating a honeymoon with your significant other, or looking to throw a memorable party, the Princess Emma is the sleek and stylish playground for the elite. Experience an overnight stay aboard, anchored in Saldanha Bay or Club Mykonos Resort, or a sunset cruise around the V&A Waterfront, while enjoying a catered menu and exquisite wines definitely tickles our fancy too! Dip into crisp waves and unwind on deck with a tropical cocktail for a taste of le good life! 


The island of the One&Only Spa is the home of luxury. The serene sanctuary is snuggled within exquisite gardens surrounded by the resort’s tranquil waterways. At this oasis you’re encouraged to indulge in being pampered with a host of lavish Spa and relaxation packages available to you. With signature rituals designed exclusively by ESPA ( luxury spa products), the One and Only Spa in Cape Town is the only place where you can experience the combination of Cape and African influences.  Furthermore, couples packages allow access to the Spa’s private suite as well as a tantalizing African Rain shower experience.

The epitome of luxury and class is revealed with a tour of the Shimansky Jewellers private showroom.  If you’re looking for a glistening lifestyle that shines from every angle, book a private tour of famous Yair Shimansky's private jeweler showroom.

A ticket to luxury (and utter bliss) comes in the form of the keys to the Hollywood Mansion in Camps Bay. The five-bedroomed paradisal playground is found at the foot of the Twelve Apostles mountain range offering majestic views of the Atlantic coast. Wake up to breakfast in bed, plunge into the private heated pool, unwind with a film in the in-house cinema or soak up idyllic views from the jacuzzi. Oh, to be rich!

Nothing says ‘life of luxury’ more than butlers and personal chefs. For a moment, take a journey with us. Imagine - you’ve just pulled yourself from a glorious slumber to awake to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee (or, you know, whatever you want) and with a knock on the door your personal butler presents you with a trolley packed with drool-worthy dishes prepared by your private chef. Would you like to return to reality? Didn’t think so.

There’s something absolutely magical about Cape Town after dark. The silhouette of Table Mountain, the ebb and flow of the yachts docked in the harbour and the illuminated vein of activity on the street – glorious! The true magic, however, happens once a month when the full moon scatters its light across the sky. To truly celebrate this occasion, the 19-story Westin Hotel’s Full Moon Dining Experience offers the perfect setting - sweeping views of our magnificent city combined with a glamorous gourmet dinner.


The Royal Portfolio offers exclusive five-star accommodation for the ultimate lavish lifestyle. From La Residence in Franschhoek to Birkenhead House in Hermanus, these award-winning luxurious properties are the epitome of world-class style. The Royal Malewane, which is situated in the Kruger National Park, for example, was awarded the 50 Best Resorts in the World by Condé Nast Traveler Readers 2016, and has been roping in awards that date as far back as 2002. (Side note: The newest edition to the Royal Collection, The Silo, will be opening in 2017 as is already an iconic point near the V&A Waterfront.)

While we each have our own definition of what luxury means, true opulence is having everything done for you.  From personal protection services, private car hire and personal shopping, Cape Town is certainly an over-achiever when it comes to everything exclusive and luxurious. 

And it does not end there.

If you want the highest quality of service and luxury, the place to go to will be that-company.co.za. Founded and directed by Zain Muller, this under-the-radar brand is accessible and affordable only by a select 2% of wealth in the world – think Sheikhs, presidents and billionaire’s lifestyle.

Now that I am both breathless and speechless and in utter wonder of Cape Town and its experiences - and in an effort to borrow words from Urban Dictionary:

“We simply cannot”.
