Set in Higgovale, one of Cape Towns most prestigious residential areas, Kensington Place is a sophisticated and tranquil hideaway set high on the slopes of Table Mountain.
Kensington Place sets the benchmark for small, intimate boutique hotels - its sexy, minimalist and stylish.
The interior is modern and chic, yet subtle enough not to overpower.
Outside is a wooden deck surrounded by silky, muted curtains with oversized cushions scattered on wicker lounge chairs. The deck extends around the pool which is just big enough to cool off in.
In the summer this area is decorated with candles, and the setting is romantic enough to have been the scene of more than a few marriage proposals! The hotel offers free internet access for guests and free entrance to the Virgin Active Gym in Green Point.
It is within easy access to the city centre, historical sites, beaches, vineyards and walks in the nearby nature reserve.
