WHERE: 38 Kensington Crescent, Higgovale, Cape Town, 021-424-4744
WHY WE LOVE IT: This has long been one of Cape Town’s most sought-after boutique hotels. With its Higgovale address and only eight suites, guests are guaranteed quiet, discreet privacy and attentive service. Rooms are big, with balconies sizeable enough to sit and enjoy the view as the sun sets over the city and harbour. The simple menu contains some delightfully tasty dishes.
X-FACTOR: The leafy green outdoor terrace area with a sundrenched swimming pool is the best way to while away a summer’s afternoon – on a sun lounger with a cocktail and a magazine.
