Set in Cape Town’s trendiest neighbourhood of Camps Bay, The Marly is an 11-bedroom boutique hotel that takes its name from the Chateau de Marly – a royal residence where Louis XIV and his family found refuge from Versailles in 17th century Paris. The elegant suites are equipped with state-of-the-art amenities and afford guests idyllic seascapes or majestic Table Mountain vistas. The hotel’s convenient location near the popular beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, as well as first-class restaurants, chic bars and entertainment venues, makes it an ideal stayover for holidaymakers keen to rub shoulders with Cape Town’s well-heeled fashion elite.
Wake up to the subtle salt aroma that drifts off the cool Atlantic into your seaside suite where mirrors reflect the uninterrupted sea-and-sand views, bringing the glorious outdoors inside. Below your window, sidewalk cafés begin to fill with breakfast diners fresh from stand-up paddle boarding or cycling. The hotel’s spotless halls are adorned with striking pieces of contemporary art and functional décor. Cream, chrome, steel and satin complement each other throughout, creating an ambiance of fashionable comfort and modern convenience.
Step out of your beachside paradise and catch a ride to the V&A Waterfront for boutique shopping and entertainment in this historical harbour between Robben Island and Table Mountain. Take an early evening walk along the palm-lined Camps Bay beachfront and return to use the outdoor shower on your expansive balcony just in time to catch the last of the sun as it dips below the peach and apricot horizon. Enjoy a casual dinner at the hotel’s modern ocean-front restaurant serving myriad sushi dishes and beautifully prepared Japanese cuisine. Then stroll to the restaurant’s 80-seater bar with outside terrace, which boasts probably the most extraordinary sea views in the neighbourhood.
