overview

Resting at the foot of Lion’s Head in the secluded, ocean-facing suburb of Bantry Bay, this luxurious boutique hotel is perfect for discerning travellers seeking a quiet retreat just minutes away from Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches and popular V&A Waterfront.

Savour spectacular sea views over a breakfast of golden croissants and dark, aromatic coffee while planning your day. Spend the morning soaking up the sun on the award-winning beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, or stroll along the sociable Sea Point promenade, stopping for a little people watching over a café coffee. Spend a secluded afternoon beside the hotel’s sparkling pool set in a manicured garden or explore the sights and sounds of the city on a day tour. Capetonians love to salute the setting sun, and the coastline is studded with popular cocktail spots, not the least of which is your suite’s private balcony or the hotel’s gorgeous terrace.

Bantry Bay is a perfect base from which to explore the rest of the Cape Peninsula. A scenic coastal road winds its way south past charming seaside towns and wild beaches to tip of the African continent at Cape Point.

Traveller Reviews

  • The Clarendon is a fabulous property. Beautiful suite facing Bantry bay, wonderful staff, and excellent breakfasts. Adele is lovely and even put together a light meal after arriving completely drained Tuesday evening. Really hard to get going in the morning it is so nice. Excellent pick.

  • The Clarendon Bantry Bay was a wonderful place to spend five days and we thoroughly enjoyed it. In particular, we had spectacular days on Table Mountain and Robben Island and a delightful trip to Franschoeck. However, driving in Cape Town is very difficult for Americans (we talked to a number of others who agreed), and we would strongly recommend not renting a car until after one leaves Cape Town, not during. Also, a GPS unit is an absolute necessity to get around.

  • Fresnaye and Bantry Bay Clarendon were also both spectacular! Camps Bay was definitely the place to stay. Emmy at Fresnaye was BY FAR the most helpful and wonderful host we had on our entire trip, she is amazing and the food there was the best breakfast we had all trip! Bantry Bay was just gorgeous, also with amazing service and the most incredible view!
