Set back from Cape Town's best beach, Camps Bay, Sea Five is - in our humble opinion - the finest of the new hotels in the city.
Sea Five pulls out all the stops to be the slickest place in Town, with elegant lighting throughout, showing off the sculptures and photographs on the walls to full effect, but still retaining the feel of a private house. Every room has been individually styled by the Italian Director Nicolo Pudel with incredibly comfortable beds and private terraces with the garden suites opening out onto a small private garden. The Mountain Suite penthouse master suite has 360 degree views of the mountains and sea.
The garden is full of the smells of mandarin, lemon, lavender and rosemary and there is a large pool and elegant bar. Guests can choose to eat in a number of places,and the excellent menu includes specialities such as fresh pasta and lobster served with organically grown herbs and salads from the garden. Breakfast is served overlooking the pool deck.
Sea Five is a veritable linen-fest, from the 100% Italian linen sheets to the immaculate lunchtime tablecloths.
