Hi Temwani and your team
Just want to say thank you for making yesterday’s lunch so special. We really enjoyed the attention to detail and personal service. The table was beautifully set and the food delicious. The service attentive but discreet. Could not have had a better birthday lunch. Thank you so much.
The service was very courteous. The room was excellent, very clean and modern. The complete system makes a great inviting impression. Unfortunately we were not there long. The hotel invites you to spend several nights.
A wonderful experience filled with peacefulness and relaxation. The pool area is awesome when you have an amazing view the mountain side.
Spectacular place to stay for business or pleasure
What a place, from driving up on the hotel, to walking in and be in awe of the view, to the seamless room automation, to the immaculate service delicious breakfasts, everything is just spot on. Comfortable desk to work on and most rooms have balconies to chill, sit in the sun and enjoy the scenery. Very recommended!
A beautiful Oasis
Stayed one night at Vida Nova and it really is a retreat. Away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to beaches, restaurants and bars. Surrounded by glorious mountains this is an amazing escape. Food was excellent and grounds beathtaking. Love the sustainability aspect and I'm booked back again tomorrow. 🙂
Beautiful hotel and wonderful staff, with an amazing restaurant and spa.
We had a fantastic weekend at this luxurious hotel. With everything right there at the hotel, including a fantastic restaurant and stunning spa, we barely wanted to leave. Although it felt like a million miles away from the hustle of the city centre, it was actually only a short drive away, so we could pop to the mother city for all the touristy activities quickly. And Hout Bay itself is a gorgeous little suburb. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to spend time in Cape Town, but who doesn't want to be crammed into the busy city centre hotels. Plus, it's an eco-hotel so it has a feel-good factor than most hotels can't offer.
Fabulous hotel combining technology and eco-consciousness. Small touches like a coffee machine and gas heater in the room gets my vote! The mountain views all around are out of this world, It literally feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet you are close to so many tourist attractions. I can recommend this for a solo retreat, couples breakaway or a family holiday.
