Cape Grace was recently voted the Best City Hotel in Africa 2022 by the prestigious Travel and Leisure Magazine’s World Travel Awards.

Situated on a private quay between Cape Town’s bustling V & A Waterfront and the tranquil yacht marina, the 5-Star Cape Grace is managed by the Accor Group, the sixth largest hospitality company globally, operating in over 5000 locations in over 110 countries. Hotel General Manager, Leon Meyer, says: “We are deeply honoured to have received this award. Everyone in the industry knows that the Travel and Leisure Magazine’s World Travel Awards is the ultimate hallmark of hospitality industry excellence.” Travel and Leisure Magazine’s World Travel Awards is an annual reader survey, rating airports, cities, cruise ships, hotels and islands.

Its annual programme is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the global industry.

AN ICONIC ADDRESS

Cape Grace is a worthy winner. An iconic address and opulent interiors do not begin to express the true luxury that is Cape Grace. ‘Welcome Home’ – an authentic heartfelt greeting – is often heard in the hallways of the hotel. The inherent promise is that of timeless elegance, the highest standard of warm service and an intangible sense of wellbeing that is simply unique to Cape Grace. The hotel is proud to offer an unrivalled location coupled with handcrafted hospitality in the heart of the Mother City. Cape Town’s astounding natural beauty, sweeping landscapes, adventurous cuisine and vibrant culture marks this destination as one of the world’s most magnificent cities. Cape Grace is honoured to sit proudly at the foot of Table Mountain, creating experiences that leave a lasting impression. The Award is certainly good news for Cape Town and speaks volumes about the city’s on-going ability to take one’s breath away.

ON THE MENU

Cape Grace has also recently launched a superb, refreshed food and beverage offering straight from the heart of an ancient floral kingdom. Inspiration is drawn from the diverse ecosystems and biomes of the area, incorporating foraged veld and sea finds as well as local ingredients. You will notice this unique homage to the indigenous botanicals of the area throughout the hotel – from the fynbos-infused cocktails in the Bascule bar to the Cape heather-inspired afternoon tea in the Library.

Signal Restaurant offers a ‘taste of the veld’ dining experience like no other, with a menu inspired by the indigenous fynbos of the Cape, beautifully curated and sourced from well-known local food heroes. Designed for sharing, each dish is a celebration of savoury or sweet veld and flower sensations and offers diners an adventurous culinary journey through the Cape’s botanical heritage and abundant, evocative mountain and ocean landscapes. Aged Yellow-wood furniture, crisp white linen, handcrafted crystal chandeliers and ceiling to floor glass doors complete the sense of occasion that such a magnificent meal deserves. Warm and attentive staff ensure personable service and a knowledgeable sommelier is always available to guide the perfect wine pairing.
