We are currently knee deep in planning our trip to South Africa. It’s been a total whirlwind of a summer: I’ve been busy this year, shooting 15 weddings and a ton more sessions, too, plus all that after we got back from Backpacking through Europe and all that after I spent three weeks in Uganda. It makes me happy just thinking about it. Anyways, so here we are, planning our trip to South Africa. If you recall, I actually WON the trip, which is amazing. Free round trip flights for two, free hotel stays, free touring, free wine tasting, free TRIP OF A LIFETIME. Honestly, it really is.
Anyways, while we’re over here picking out our little apartment and kitchenette and trying to figure out the most cost effective way to see the country, the good folks at Wines of South Africa (thank you thank you for hosting us!!) are putting together an even more amazing and luxurious experience than I had ever imagined. So, in honor of our upcoming trip, in honor of the folks at WOSA who are so amazing, and in honor of all things wonderful and luxurious, I present you our four hotels for the time we are here.
Warning: The photos to come will induce serious envy, wanderlust, and the desire to book a ticket and start enjoying a really really nice hotel. Wow. I’m amazed myself and, honestly, won’t believe it until we actually get there. (Nov 2nd!)
Holy. Wow. This place is amazing! The beautiful white washed building reminds me of Napa and spa country up here, the winery looks fantastic, and those pools leave me breathless. It’s a good thing we’re spending three nights here because they will have a seriously difficult time trying to get me out of here. haha.
Leaving the last places is made a little easier though by this sweet, urban spot. I feel like the hotel looks like a post place in Paris… The food is supposed to be really good, so I definitely plan to get myself one of those tables outside and enjoy a long, luxurious, absolutely fantastic dinner with lots of wine. Wow-ee!
The Taj also looks like a magical place. Located right down town, right on the water, it’s going to be in the middle of the wonderful bustle of everything. I’m really excited to hang out here, feel like luxury here, and then head out into the city to see a little bit of what downtown Cape Town has to offer, too! Yay!
Last but not least, this amazing five star hotel brags that it’s constantly rated as the best hotel in Cape Town. I pretty much don’t have to visit to know that this is true… Just look at that placement! That hotel, right below some of the most stunning mountains in the world and one of the most impressive vistas I’ve ever seen has me absolutely drooling. I. Cannot. Wait. To. Stay. Here. The view is insane, the hotel looks glamorous, and the spa is supposed to be world class. Sit me down with that view and a glass of South African wine and you’ll be able to find me just where you left me all darn day.
So there you have it. Four wonderful and beautiful places to stay in Cape Town, South Africa. Just kidding. This is actually a list of four reasons why you should be insanely jealous of me for the entire three weeks that I spend in South Africa.
Gah. I CANNOT WAIT!
