Kensington Place

Set in Higgovale, one of Cape Town’s most prestigious residential areas, Kensington Place is a sophisticated and tranquil hideaway set high on the slopes of Table Mountain, perfect for a honeymoon in Cape Town or relaxing after a South Africa safari holiday.

This hotel sets the benchmark for small, intimate boutique hotels – it’s sexy, minimalist and stylish. We certainly recommend this as a destination for guests who want seclusion and privacy while not compromising on luxury and service.

The interior is modern and chic, yet subtle enough not to overpower. Outside is a wooden deck surrounded by silky, muted curtains with over sized cushions scattered on wicker lounge chairs. The deck extends around the small but welcome pool.

Rooms at Kensington Place
Rooms are plain yet stylish, and a variety of interiors create a unique feel for each room. Rooms are adorned with rich, decadent fabrics and artwork created by predominantly South African artists. The overall style is contemporary with an eclectic African feel. All but one room contain private terraces from which you can enjoy the view of the valley below.

The small dining room is elegant and functional, and contains a small bar area where guests can enjoy a late night whisky after a day’s sightseeing or partying in Cape Town.

As well as breakfast, a chef is on duty to prepare gourmet lunch and dinner five days a week. These meals can also be enjoyed in the dining room or in the privacy of your suite or terrace.

Struggle to make it out of bed in the mornings? No problem! – They will serve breakfast until 13h00!

For our golfing clients there are a number of courses nearby, such as Steenberg, Westlake and slightly further afield, the lovely Clovelly Courses that welcome visitors on South Africa Golf Holidays.

In our opinion: This is perfect for a honeymoon, its a little on the pricey side compared to other Cape Town accommodation but it is very much a 'boutique hotel' and is very popular with younger guests.
