In our recent blog feature on why you should plan a winter holiday in Cape Town, we offered a list of the best kept secrets about travelling the city in winter. In this blog, we share some tips on how to plan a super luxurious, unforgettable escape this winter.
Here are a few ideas for a luxury winter holiday:
- Spa pampering: Shake off the cool weather blues, escape the rain showers and enjoy the luxury of a spa that caters to your every need with a variety of packages. Pepperclub’s very own Cayenne Spa is such a spa! An oasis on the eight floor of the hotel, Cayenne Spa offers a treatments range from full body wellness wraps, to body exfoliation, massage, facials, manicure, pedicures and waxing treatments, while its signature treatment, the Intonga Stick Massage, incorporates special African Intonga sticks to offer a unique full body massage experience.
- World-class shopping: What better way to enjoy your post-treatment glow than a bit of retail therapy? One of the Cape’s most prestigious shopping centres is just a few minutes away from Pepperclub Hotel & Spa (with a complimentary scheduled shuttle service available from the hotel). The V&A Waterfront is home to a diverse range of designer stores, including Hugo Boss, Armani, Gucci, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors and many others. Locally made homeware, clothing, accessories, gifts, art, uniquely African curios and many other items can also be found here. The V&A Waterfront also houses a number of top quality restaurants, bars, cafés, and a movie cinema. In addition, the Two Oceans Aquarium, Clock Tower, Big Wheel and other attractions can also found here.
- Fine dining: When in Cape Town, take the opportunity to enjoy a local taste sensation at one of the many exceptional and highly acclaimed restaurants found within the city and its surrounds. Within the city centre, choices are varied to nearly every taste preference. Pepperclub Hotel & Spa itself is home to Sinatra’s Restaurant, which is a great place to grab a bite to eat for a night in. Other fine dining options nearby include Aubergine, Savoy Cabbage, The Shortmarket Club and Haiku. Just outside of the city centre one can find the Roundhouse in Camps Bay, Pigalle in Green Point, La Mouette in Sea Point, Baia in the V&A Waterfront, and The Pot Luck Club and Test Kitchen in Woodstock.
