Something NEW for the NEW YEAR– “Our Top Three Picks” in and around Cape Town:

The Marly Hotel & Umi Restaurant
Taking its name from Chậteau de Marly, built in the 17th Century for the leisure activities of Louis XIV and his family, The Marly says it all. This five-star hotel with its contemporary beach ambience is located in Camps Bay. The hotel offers eleven spacious suites, offering either sea- or mountain views; mirrored contemporary en-suite bathrooms; and state-of-the-art amenities for today’s discerning traveller. The luxury and deluxe suites have jacuzzis, outdoor showers and large, welcoming balconies. Among the hotel facilities are a private, pool-terrace bar and courtyard, 24-hour room service and a bath-butler service.
Umi, a modern Japanese restaurant, with seating capacity for 200 guests, will satisfy diners looking for tasty, healthy, in-house eating options. It boasts Camps Bay's newest, chicest, 80-seater bar that overlooks an outside terrace. A high-tech conference venue will satisfy the business requirements of top executives and their teams.
The hotel and restaurant is located in the heart of the Camps Bay strip, so it’s spot-on for those wanting to be “where the cool people are”.

Cavalli Wine Estate and Stud and Equus Restaurant
Situated between Somerset West and Stellenbosch lies Cavalli Wine Estate and Stud Farm. Just 45 minutes from Cape Town, this gorgeous new property offers a multitude of products; wine tastings, art gallery, fine dining, an event venue and exquisite views of the vineyards and Helderberg Mountain.
The newly opened Equus Restaurant offers fine dining, superb eco-design and a relaxing outlook over the vineyards and lake. Cavalli’s approach to cuisine can be described as “a contemporary take on the classics”, encompassing a combination of freshness, flavour and flair. Real, humble food cooked textbook style, paired with an expertly crafted wine list and selected whiskies.
Cavalli estate aims to encourage the local arts through its platforms of public sculpture spaces and an art gallery within the Restaurant / Function complex. The Gallery will retain a permanent installation showcasing classic South African artists, as well as a rotating exhibition of other notable works within the Cavalli Private Collection.

Bennet Street and Gold Restaurant
One of our favourite venues in Cape Town, Gold Restaurant, has announced that they have taken over management of the adjacent venue, Bennett Street. This versatile function space can comfortably hold 200 guests banquet-style and can be operated independently of the restaurant. For larger groups of up to 2500 guests, the entire complex, including Bennett Street itself, the road after which the venue was named, can be closed off to create a “street-party” atmosphere.
