Dominated by the iconic Table Mountain, which serves as a backdrop everywhere in the city, Cape Town is a mishmash of cultures. Its appeal was apparent the day we arrived: we had a month-long apartment rental and a plethora of “must-see” sites, but the laid-back vibe of the city had us in no rush to do so. After just one hour of exploring, we said to each other, “We are going to love it here.” After two months of soaking up the sun, enjoying the outdoors, and eating delicious food, we still hadn’t managed to pull away from the city. The magic of Cape Town extends well beyond its beauty; it lies in what it can offer visitors. Whether it was checking out a weekend market, hiking, attending a jazz concert, canyoneering, or spotting some wildlife, we never ran out of things to do. And you won’t either!

POD is more than a luxury boutique hotel. It’s a declaration of love for fine living, fine design, and unforgettable experiences. Located on the world-famous Camps Bay beach front, POD combines all the qualities most prized by the discerning traveller. 17 rooms and suites provide the ultimate comfort and privacy. Every room is exquisitely finished, with unparalleled taste evidenced in its design. The picturesque lounge and bar create a sense of sociability while indulgent private decks ensure exclusivity, too (three rooms boast their own splash pools). Frequented by celebrities and alive with culture, Camps Bay is one of the world’s most desirable destinations.

The Marly, our 38-suite, five-star boutique hotel, takes its name from Chateau de Marly, built in the 17th Century for the leisure activities of Louis XIV and his family, says it all. It's a real five-star showpiece with a contemporary beach ambience. Elaborate mirrors of varying shapes and sizes reflect the uninterrupted ocean and mountain views.
