Hotel Description

It’s not much of a castle, really, and not quite a manor house either — but Colona Castle’s name, in any case, puts the right sort of picture in your head. You don’t come to Cape Town for outrageous, cutting-edge design, but for the classic good life — traditional architecture, old-fashioned hospitality, and a natural setting that’s unparalleled in its beauty.

Here, twenty minutes outside of town, you’ll find all three: Colona Castle is a Tuscan-style villa, an intimate eight-room hideaway, high on a hillside, affording panoramic views of the mountains, the lake district, Cape Town’s city lights and the Atlantic coastline.

The seven suites (and one cozy bedroom) all differ in style, leaving the Tuscan theme at the door — they range from safari-camp fantasy to British colonial to Indian or Moroccan, all united by the common threads of rich materials and contemporary clean lines. Hotel amenities are simple, fitting the small scale of this intimate villa hotel — there’s a pool deck, complete with stunning views, and a kitchen using the finest organic and local ingredients. Nearby you’ll find Sandviel Lake and the beaches at False Bay, four golf courses lie within a few miles, and the vineyards of the Winelands are just a day trip away.

How to get there:

Colona Castle is approximately a 25 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
