THE MARLY Boutique Hotel & Spa in Camps Bay had me at the Eames Chairs, the views, and the unobtrusive sea side entrance, a smart decor synopsis of what awaits throughout the hotel.
Having endured several months of closure during this frustrating Lockdown, The Marly is once again receiving guests, all safety protocols observed.
South Africa is in Level 2 that permits interprovincial travel and it’s a go for local adventuring. I for one am road-tripping all over the place, sating my wanderlust as I do my part to promote Cape Town and SA and show my support for the #SouthAfricaIsTravelReady and #IAmTourism campaigns.
There are 38 suites at the hotel that derives its name from Chateau de Marly, built in the 17th Century for Louis XIV and his family.
The rooms are spacious, with sliding glass doors that allow the natural light to stream in. Overall design reflects a curated overlap of contemporary comfort, showpiece luxury, and the ever present ocean and beach below.
Camps Bay is an affluent coastal suburb on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard that hums in and out of season with beachgoers, locals, tourists and pretty much anyone who loves a chilled glass of wine at a pavement cafe. The hotels prime location means uninterrupted views across Lions Head, the ocean and The Twelve Apostles mountain range as a backdrop.
