MannaBay Fine Boutique Hotel Cape Town | Cape Town, South Africa | My last three fabulous days I spent in Cape Town where at this small charming and lovely fine boutique hotel by the name of MannaBay. At the foot of the Table Mountain is Cape Town’s latest and most elegant boutique guesthouse, right in the heart of the city, MannaBay has just seven uniquely designed suites that set the bar for contemporary luxury. If you are looking for luxury, personalized professional service, attention to detail and great breakfast or high tea, do not look anymore. [tab name=’> CM Experience’]
MannaBay is synonymous with timeless elegance and modern luxury. All the magnificent bedrooms have state-of-the-art flat screen TVs with a variety of satellite channels and iPod docking stations. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and have underfloor heating if it gets a little chilly. In the opulent, white, marble bathrooms, you’ll find indulgent Moya amenities which use uniquely South African ingredients such as Rooibos and the essential oils of indigenous Cape Snowbush, Buchu, and Blue Mountain Sage. But it’s the imagination of the interior design at MannaBay which will really catch your eye, where intriguing furniture and exquisite art work abound. The space and views are unsurpassed and with just seven suites, MannaBay offers one of the most intimate experiences available in the fairest Cape.
A warm and professional team from the butlers who will tend to your every whim to the meticulous housekeeping staff. MannaBay is situated in a safe and affluent neighbourhood and has a state-of-the-art 24hour security system as well as a secure garage with direct access to the guesthouse.
The Versaille Suite, inspired by the regal splendour of the Palace of Versailles and the Ancien Régime in France, this is a suite that would have made Louise XIV cerise pink with envy. And there’s space for his entourage as well. Sumptuous, deep, rich fabrics compliment the royal blue and silver fleur-de-lis wall paper. Faux marble busts complete the period look and are juxtaposed by modern comforts including the 32” LCD flat screen. Kick back in the crisp, white percale comfort of your extra length king size bed or take tea on your private patio alongside the koi pond with magnificent views over the city and on to the harbour beyond. You’ll have your own private sitting room, a dressing room and a white marble bathroom big enough for a few juggling and cart-wheeling court jesters.
Oh and there’s also a double basin, vast shower and a deep and opulent free standing bath for the royal couple.
Great outdoor pool area, with views to Table Mountain on one side and Cape Town city on the other, surrounded by a charming patio, where you can have breakfast, lunch, high tea, cocktail or just relax by the sun. Only comment, is that I would have loved the pool to be heated to be able to take a quick swim.
So if you want to feel at home, without sacrificing luxury and service, but still in an intimate atmosphere of an small fine boutique hotel, then MannaBay and all their staff will, with no doubt deliver. CM
