Pepperclub Hotel and Spa, Cape Town CBD
Within the bustling city of Cape Town, the Pepperclub Hotel and Spa offers a luxurius retreat. A spa, private cinema, and bar and lounge with grand piano adding to the soothing ambiance will make you want to stay another day… and another, and another.

This calming atmosphere carries through into the hotel’s rooms decorated in earthy tones with pops of colour here and there in the scatter cushions and rugs. There are six different room options available, all of which come standard with extra-length, king-sized beds and en-suite bathrooms, fitted with either spacious showers or slipper baths – perfect to fill to the brim with bubbles and loll in.

Palazzo Hotel, Fourways, Johannesburg
Opulence doesn’t come any more grand than at The Palazzo. As the hotel’s name suggests, it is palatial and each suite – more like a residence – is adorned with crystal-and-copper chandeliers, ornate gold-rimmed mirrors, and potted orchids. Slide open double-doors to your lavish bedroom, with its soft king-size bed, walk-in wardobe, a full en-suite stocked with Charlotte Rhys bath products.

Your evenings’ entertainment is also taken care of with Montecasino easily accessible via a safe, open-air walkway. Watch a movie, take in a theatrical production, try your luck in a round of Blackjack, or simply enjoy drinks and dinner.

Hyatt Regency, Rosebank, Johannesburg
The Hyatt Regency is a foodie’s delight. OneNINEone is the hotel’s on-site fine dining establishment where Executive Chef Andrew Atkinson, of SA Masterchef fame, creates quintessentially African dishes with a unique flair. You going to be as full as a tick after tucking into sumptious mains like cape malay spiced ostrich with lentil bobotie, but be sure not to pass up dessert. We highly recommend the dreamy salted caramel cheescake – even if you do have to take it away as a midnight snack.

After a memorable evening out, retire upstairs to one the elegant suites. Each is the lap of luxury boasting a king-size bed, en-suite with touches of granite, and thoughtful amenities like sweetly scented shower gel.

President Hotel, Bantry Bay, Cape Town
Cape Town is one of our favourite places – we love having the best of both city and sea. The President faces onto the aquamarine Atlantic seascape, whose shore you follow with a leisurly bicycle ride along the promenade, and is only 7km from the buzzing CBD.

After a day of being out and about, relax on the sun-soacked Terrace, cocktail in hand, or retire to the privacy of your suite. There are three suite types to choose from, each with living areas and satellite TV, semi self-catering kitchenettes, double or twin beds covered in crisp white linen, and wide windows framing magnificent views – these light and spacious rooms are a serious drawcard.
