About Cape Grace

Cape Grace presents luxury in a new light.

Nestled on a private quay between the working harbour of Cape Town’s bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and the serenity of an international yacht marina, Cape Grace is a welcoming and gracious sanctuary of tradition, sophistication and contemporary comfort.

Our refashioned look juxtaposes modern with period, rare with everyday and a sense of spontaneity with the handcrafted, personal care we’re known for. Interiors combine engaging artifacts and original antiques with a rich tapestry of local history, infused with artistic renditions of the exceptional botanical kingdom that surrounds us.

Loyalty to our guests is paramount at Cape Grace: This is reflected in the luxurious spaciousness of guests’ rooms; the diverse spectrum of amenities and extra services, and in our constant quest to deliver unsurpassed service standards that are equally proficient and warmly individual.

With a genuine passion to champion distinctive standards in service, Cape Grace is dedicated to surpassing expectations and making your stay, whether work or pleasure, the most memorable ever.
