What makes Cape Town a great destination
Why Cape Town
Surrounded by nature reserves, vineyards, colonial farms, quaint small towns like Stellenbosch and the French tinted artistic village of Franschhoek with its mellow atmosphere, Cape Point where the sea lions rest, Cape Town is the pearl of South Africa. With its white sandy beaches, trendy beach cafes, gorgeous restaurants, The Waterfront - filled with lovely shops, bars where there is always a band or group of artists performing somewhere someplace and this all with the backdrop of majestic Table Mountain, surely it does not get more spectacular than this.
You are so very welcome in Cape Town, where you'll experience the warm atmosphere from Africa and the trendy beat of the heart of our country.
With a distinct flavour of its own, affected in no small part by the cultural melting pot of Indonesian, French, Dutch, British and German settlers who each indelibly stamped their mark upon the foundations of the city, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world today. The inner city is an eclectic mix of architectural styles that combine the past with the present in a mishmash of high-rise office blocks, Edwardian and Victorian buildings and narrow, cobblestone streets that give rise to fine examples of Cape Dutch design.

Hotel: Table Bay
The Table Bay Hotel, located on Cape Town's Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, straddles the antique breakwater and is an architectural masterpiece, capturing the essence of the enchanting Cape, the Victorian elegance of yesterday, combined with the contemporary design of today. It is in perfect harmony with the backdrop of Table Mountain, the historic working harbour and the yacht bay.
The interior of the Table Bay Hotel presents a kaleidoscope of impressions, from the European marble mosaic of the entrance court to the intricate parquet floor of the foyer framed by the full-scale drama of Table Mountain, with the activity of the harbour in the foreground. Below the foyer to the south, is the grand lounge with its cathedral ceiling and twin fireplaces
