Penguins at Boulders Beach

1 hour away
Nestled in a sheltered cove between Simon’s Town and Cape Point, Boulders has become world famous for its thriving colony of African Penguins and magnificent wind sheltered, safe beaches.

Green Market Square

1 km away
In the heart of Cape Town’s business district, you’ll find Greenmarket Square. The square has quite a reputation – it has been a slave market, a fruit and vegetable market and, during the 1950s, a humble parking lot. Greenmarket Square is the ultimate flea market – not only will you find a wide range of goods to buy, there is also entertainment in the form of buskers, mime artists and jugglers, especially on Saturday mornings and other busy times.

District Six Museum

1 km away
District Six was named the Sixth Municipal District of Cape Town in 1867. Originally established as a mixed community of freed slaves, merchants, artisans, labourers and immigrants, District Six was a vibrant centre with close links to the city and the port. By the beginning of the twentieth century, however, the process of removals and marginalisation had begun.

Winston Churchill called it “a most excellent establishment”; John Lennon meditated in its lush grounds, and modern-day celebrities from Leonardo di Caprio to Charlize Theron have breakfasted on its sunny balconies. This is Mount Nelson, a Belmond Hotel, an iconic resort that has been welcoming guests for more than 120 years. Our location is outstanding, with the dramatic Table Mountain just behind and the city’s pulsating attractions just beyond the stone-columned gates, installed in 1925 to welcome the Prince of Wales. We have 198 fabulous, individually designed rooms and suites to choose from, all offering different moods and views. Couples find secluded bliss in the garden cottage suites, decorated with oversized couches, fireplaces and Venetian mirrors. Families feel at home in our spacious, light-filled suites or interconnecting rooms. An array of activities keeps all ages entertained, from heated pools and a children’s club, bootcamp classes, tennis coaching and yoga. Explore the expansive grounds, a gorgeous mix of manicured lawns, historic palms and fragrant rose gardens. Nourish body and soul at Librisa Spa with a range of holistic, African inspired treatments. Book a seat at our interactive experience at The Chef’s Table or join us for the most iconic Afternoon Tea Experience in Africa - a bucket list experience! When it comes to great occasions, we know how to throw a party. Weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, big or small, can be celebrated in sensational style.
