As a premier destination to visit in the world, voted as a top city by the New York Times, Condé Nast Traveller and TripAdvisor, Cape Town is the ideal location for a holiday. From short and sweet to long and luxurious, romantic weekend away or girls’ night out, the Mother City always wraps its loving arms around visitors and encourages them to never leave.  At the La Splendida Hotel, guests can look forward to an ultimate weekend getaway and all Cape Town has to offer, with its central location on the Atlantic Seaboard, fresh young style and unbeatable value for money.

Located on the Mouille Point promenade’s ‘Platinum Mile,’ La Splendida Hotel neighbours the bustling V&A Waterfront, just a 10 minute walk away.  Find the Waterfront’s local food and craft market, the Two Ocean’s Aquarium, the Cape Wheel, a cinema, shopping and an endless variety of restaurants that suit any mood, at this incredible working harbour. Grab a bite to eat after a long walk along the coast at La Splendida’s in-house restaurant, Sotano while watching sailboats go by with a cocktail in hand. Or, book a Saturday night of fine dining at the Queen Victoria Hotel’s Dash Restaurant & Bar (voted as one of TripAdvisors top 2 in Cape Town) for a taste of the city’s best.

Adventure seekers can spend their weekend mornings hiking up Table Mountain or paragliding off of Lion’s Head and a relaxing afternoon at one of Cape Town’s blue flag beaches: Clifton, Camps Bay or one of Sea Point’s local beaches, just around the corner from the property.  Sun lovers, who want a tranquil weekend, can spend a Sunday strolling across the street watching waves crash onto the rocks, or puppies play on the lawns of the lighthouse.

Visitors from South Africa and international cities alike will enjoy the spoils of the upmarket feel and location when spending time at La Splendida.  Regardless of business or leisure, guests can open their curtains and watch the sunset from the comfort of their bed, spend a cosy morning in the quiet respite of their room or enjoy a few moments to themselves while basking in the South African sun.  With Cape Town on the doorstep of the property, rooms facing the sea, friendly staff and reasonable rates throughout the year, La Splendida is the ideal weekend getaway.
