Expert Review

At the historic heart of Cape Town, this five-star newcomer (opened in early 2010) is a perfect blend of rich history and elegant contemporary architecture. The landmark building, originally home to the South African Reserve Bank, showcases 177 guest rooms and suites. Original architecture - high ceilings, spacious rooms and large windows - and old-world ambience pervade the Heritage Rooms and Suites. The Tower Rooms and Suites are contemporary in design, with floor-to-ceiling glass façades and private balconies sporting remarkable views. All rooms have five-star bells and whistles such as iPod docking stations, workstations with multimedia hub, and Molton Brown toiletries. The fine-dining Bombay Brasserie specializes in Indian cuisine, while the casual Mint serves international and local fare. The on-premise Jiva Grande Spa features a range of holistic signature therapies drawn from ancient Indian healing wisdom and Ayurveda. The spacious fitness center has a well-equipped gym and an indoor heated pool. A bonus: complimentary city and V&A Waterfront transfers.
