About Nova Constantia Boutique Residence
At Nova Constantia we pride ourselves on not just offering a fine boutique hotel in the heart of the historical Constantia Valley but rather a private residence that exceeds the expectations of even the most seasoned traveller.
The hotel is situated in a quiet yet accessible leafy suburb of Cape Town, known as the Constantia Valley, which evolved from the very first wine-producing farms established in the Cape colony, as early as 1685. This idyllic location provides the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate with peace and privacy as the ideal.
Nova Constantia is a generously well designed space of architectural grandeur. Its African Chic contemporary style reflects the best of what the new South Africa has to offer. The large private manicured gardens allow you to benefit from the alfresco lifestyle of the Cape and the design theme expands outdoors into several secluded tranquillity areas allowing guests to relax in privacy cocooned in sheer luxury.
Having just eight exclusive suites enables us to pay undivided attention and focus on service to our esteemed guests it is the attention to detail which makes this property unique.
Our unique art gallery showcases an array of local art by both emerging and established artists. The pieces are on display throughout the residence as well as in the gardens.
The hotel boasts a sizeable library of light reading material as well as DVDs. Satellite TV and digital audio channels are offered on 40inch flat screen TVs in the suites or via the projector screen in the lounge. Broadband internet connectivity with uncapped Wi-Fi access is available throughout the hotel.
Other facilities include a flood-lit tennis court, a sizeable heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, health & beauty spa, cigar lounge and a snooker table on the patio.
