Set on the mountain slopes on the warmer False Bay coastline, Colona Castle is a Mediterranean-style manor house which has been freshly renovated, and decorated with an impressive array of art and antiques accumulated over many years. This is a peaceful place where you can relax on one of the patios in the summer, or cuddle up next to an open-hearth log fire in the winter. Enjoy a day on the sandy beaches of Muizenberg, or stroll through the 'arty' fishing village of Kalk Bay.

Take a drive to the centre of Cape Town to shop along the trendy Long Street or in the sophisticated V&A Waterfront, or visit the range of museums and galleries here. Alternatively, explore the scenic peninsula with a visit to the penguins at Boulders Beach and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Alternatively, simply stay at the hotel and relax on the patio or request a spa treatment in the privacy of your room.

Safari Superior Suite

Colona Castle has five luxury suites, one family suite, and two superior bedrooms that have all been distinctly styled with artefacts collected from every corner of the globe.

All the bedrooms are air-conditioned and en suite, with extra large showers, heated towel rails, under-floor heating, and crisp cotton linen. Most of the rooms have balconies with views of the sea, lakes and mountains.

The Safari Suite is a stunning room ideal for a couple, yet spacious enough to accommodate a small family. The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a flat screen TV, while the additional bed is located in an alcove leading to the bathroom. The bathroom features a large shower, a bath, and dual vanities. The suite has spectacular views of the Sandvlei Lake and the Cape Peninsula.
