OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

This self-contained luxury resort sits next to the yacht marina at the western end of the V&A Waterfront. It is part of a circle of residential properties looking onto a duo of central islands on which some rooms and suites are set. Airport transfers take around 20 minutes, and there is complimentary underground parking. The Two Oceans Aquarium is close by. Walk a little further east and you'll reach the Victoria Wharf shopping centre then the Nelson Mandela Gateway, from where boat trips depart to Robben Island.

By plane: direct flights from London Heathrow to Cape Town take 12 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Free parking available. Book flights to Cape Town.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Rising to seven floors, this plush and polished resort is anchored on a powerhouse lobby lounge with the oval-shaped Vista Bar looking out to the pool and its islands. It's an inviting space with a pianist in the evening and the busy public areas contrast with the pampering serenity of the bedrooms.

THE FACILITIES

Facilities include a fitness centre and yoga studio, and you can arrange guided exercise excursions following mountain and forest trails. There's a first-floor art gallery with works for sale and a concierge desk with a wealth of experiences from whale watching and diving with sharks to golf and vineyard tours.
