Alta Bay, located in Higgovale, the most up-market suburb of the City Bowl, is set high on the slopes of Table Mountain, with beautiful views over Table Bay and the City, yet only 2 km away from most of Cape Town’s attractions including the Waterfront, Clifton and Camps Bay beaches. Surrounded by a lush native garden, Alta Bay combines understated luxury and urban chic with a laid-back and retreat atmosphere.
“Alta Bay, previously a 5-star boutique hotel has recently been converted into a 4-Star guest house with 4 large luxury units.”
This Tuscan house is built on separate levels with a great sense of space and light throughout. Each unit has a separate entrance, fully equipped kitchen (or kitchenette), and a private terrace / deck. The Loft (70 m²) and the Bay Suite (42 m²) offer spectacular vistas of the sea and city while the Garden Room (28 m²) below has the benefit of the shaded lush garden. The Loft has a bedroom on the mezzanine floor, a bathroom with bath & shower and a sleeper couch which can accommodate a 3rd adult or 2 children. A continental breakfast (served in the room or terrace) is available on request at an extra charge.
All 4 luxurious units were designed in a contemporary style with bespoke furniture handcrafted locally. Each room offers extra-length king/twin beds, air-con, heaters, flat screen TV’s with incorporated DVD/CD player, satellite TV, electronic safes and unlimited wireless PC connection.
Alta Bay is not just accommodation for a night of sleep during your stay in Cape Town. It is a serene sanctuary of sun-drenched spaciousness, where you can enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere throughout the day.
