Merriam-Webster defines luxury as: “a condition of abundance or great ease and comfort: sumptuous environment.” Another definition describes luxury as “something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary.” Well, we beg to differ. This is absolutely necessary when splurging R46 000/night on a stay in the Mother City.
Nestled on the foot of Table Mountain, The Residence by Atzaró boasts spectacular views of the city, Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head. This sprawling mid-century style villa and guesthouse adds a modern twist and offers seven suites for those looking for a stylish staycation. The interior is as stylish and neutral as its exterior, allowing Cape Town’s incredible landscape to do all the talking.
If you’re not gawking at the 360-degree panoramic views, you’re bound to entertain yourself with the numerous upmarket facilities. Take an exhilarating dip in the swimming pool before heading to the state-of-the-art gym, or take full advantage of their wellness suite all equipped with a yoga room, sauna and massage room. You won’t have to lift a finger either, as housekeeping and laundry are available to guests, with the added bonus of a live-in house manager.
While you may be tempted to spend the entire day discovering all that this five-star property has to offer, enjoy a thrilling adventure shark diving with the seals or explore the natural beauty and fruits of the Cape Winelands with a wine tour – all organised by the property upon request.
Now, that’s the real definition of luxury!
