Boutique, c’est chic!
7 incredibly chic boutique beauties in South Africa
A stay in a boutique hotel always feels so special, and these chic and charming establishments tend to have a certain je ne sais quoi that can be difficult to describe. The luxury is unrivalled; the attention to detail is remarkable; and a chain hotel just can’t compete with such intimate settings or offer the same levels of privacy.
In a boutique hotel, every piece of décor has been carefully considered, every room has been individually crafted, and no interior design skill has been spared.
In a boutique hotel, your comfort is a priority and boutique hotels are small enough to be able to cater for your every whim.
It is the personable touches in a boutique hotel that make a stay so memorable. And you’re likely to never forget a luxury vacation spent at one of these 7 incredibly chic boutique beauties in South Africa (from Culture Trip):
1. The Auberge Burgundy
This French-style boutique hotel can be found in the seaside town of Hermanus, which is famed for its whale watching opportunities. And the incredible views from the balconies maximise your chances to spot these underwater wonders.
2. AtholPlace Hotel & Villa
Although it’s only a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Sandton (Johannesburg’s business district), this boutique hotel is tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood. So you can quite easily forget you’re in one of the world’s most vibrant capital cities as you peacefully lounge in an exquisitely decorated suite, cosy up with a book in the library, or relax around the heated pool outside.
3. Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa
Accommodation in South Africa’s Mother City doesn’t get much better than this little gem near the V&A Waterfront. A Victorian theme with modern fixtures makes for a unique setting, and one glimpse at the elegant interiors will make it clear why it has been voted one of the top luxury hotels in the country.
4. Angala Boutique Hotel
Luxury and nature entwine in the Cape Winelands at this boutique hotel that comes complete with its own wellness spa. Enjoy gourmet dinners, wines from nearby vineyards, and rounds of golf at one of the nearby golf estates, which are considered to be some of the best in the county.
5. POD Boutique Hotel
As this modern hotel is situated bang on the beachfront, this jewel in Camp’s Bay’s crown provides uninterrupted views of both the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, as well as green architecture.
6. The Peech Eco Chic Boutique Hotel
Set within beautiful gardens, this contemporary hotel is the epitome of eco-chic, with a Fair Trade Tourism certificate to prove it. It may be located near Melrose Arch in an urban setting, but it strives to be at one with the environment in its practices and its African-inspired decor.
7. No. 5 Boutique Art Hotel
This five-star hotel in the upmarket neighborhood of Summerstrand in Port Elizabeth makes for the perfect stop along the Garden Route. Enjoy the comfort of your own private lounge and double bathroom before heading off to marvel at the pachyderms in nearby Addo Elephant National Park.
