Expert Review

Little is left to be desired at this stellar addition to Cape Town's Victoria & Alfred Waterfront district, where contemporary architecture and creature comforts blend seamlessly with an African-inspired palette. Rich earth tones, textiles, and indigenous artwork can be found in every nook and cranny of this luscious retreat, as well as stunning views of Table Mountain - especially from the crescent-shaped Marina Rise building, whose 91 guest rooms (including 13 suites) were designed with the view in mind. Each room offers a private balcony, an ultra-luxe bathroom with rain shower and soaking tub, complimentary Wi-Fi, and 24-hour butler service. Those seeking more seclusion may opt for one of the 40 villa suites located on a lush, adjacent island that's easily accessible by bridge or water taxi. Downtime here is spent lounging by the infinity pool or making an excursion to the 12,000-square-foot spa, the largest in Cape Town. Nobuyuki Matsuhisa's Nobu and Gordon Ramsay's Maze restaurant (which offers 450 wines) make dining here a dream, with each world-renowned chef showcasing his distinctive cuisine with a dash of African flair.
