Sea Five Boutique Hotel , CAPE TOWN, South Africa
Light, airy and spacious, this really is a beach house with a difference: think Cape Cod-meets-stylish-Europe and sets up home in Cape Town, overlooking the crashing waves of über-trendy Camps Bay!
Capitalising on an outstanding location, just 300 metres from Camps Bay, South Africa’s most glamorous beach, is the exclusive Sea Five Boutique Hotel.
With such an idyllic location, Sea Five's seven en-suite rooms – each individually designed by renowned South African interior designer Francois du Plessis and Nicolò Stortiglione Pudel – allow for clear, sweeping views of Table Mountain, Lions Head or the ocean and all come with a real Afro-Mediterranean feel.
The pick of the crop though is the glorious two-bedroomed penthouse; taking up the whole of the second floor and with the most incredible picture-postcard views of both the mountains and the ocean.
When it's time to retire for the night, you can sleep easy in 100% pure Italian linen; awakening the next day to the soothing sounds of the sea and the divine scent of freshly-baked bread and croissants – just part of the full gourmet breakfast that's included in your stay. And for days where all you want to do is lounge around the gorgeous pool or take yoga on your terrace, light lunches at the hotel can also be arranged in the location of your choice.
