Kensington Place

There are a number of reasons Kensington Place received rave reviews from the likes of Tatler’s Travel Guide, Vogue Entertaining & Travel and The Address Magazine.

It goes without saying that location is everything. Situated on the slopes of Table Mountain in Higgovale, one of Cape Town’s most sought after suburbs; this eight suite boutique masterpiece is a picture of stylish contemporary glamour. Views overlooking the city and Table Bay are spectacular.

Superb style and attention to detail is what brings guests back time and again. Everything in Kensington Place was handpicked to compliment the chic personality of this hotel. The geometric modern architecture is enhanced by distinctly linear furnishings, cascading chandeliers and sleek and sexy curves. Lighting is also integral to setting the mood. Splashes of bright colours bring a cheeky fun element to the predominantly black and white pallet.


Each of the spacious air-conditioned luxury suites is individually decorated, with every carefully chosen throw and cushion, vase and mirror adding to the room’s personality and sparkle. Lavish textures create areas of interest and blend seamlessly together into a contemporary Afro-chic ensemble.

En-suite marble bathrooms are stunningly accessorised with luxuriously decadent Molten Brown amenities, large enveloping bath towels, gowns and slippers. The under-floor heating creates a warm, nurturing atmosphere in winter.

Kensington Place goes the extra miles to ensure everything you need for the perfect vacation is on hand in your suite, from creature comforts like hairdryers, gym-in-a-bag, a beach bag with beach towels and sun tan lotion for a trip to Clifton or Camps Bay, and a snack box and mini-bar. For times when a snack doesn’t fill the gap, 24 hour room service is a phone call away.

Understanding the need to be connected, each room has a laptop with complimentary Wi-Fi, iPod docking station, Skype phone, and satellite television and DVD players.

Full concierge service is available for guests. Pamper sessions can be arranged in your suite, and guests enjoy a complimentary gym membership during their stay.
