Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront

Cape Town

Days 1 - 4: Cape Town

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront Location Map

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is consistently voted amongst the top cities in the world to visit and it is no surprise that this wonderful city is one of the highlights of a holiday to South Africa. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers.

One of the main tourist attractions is the tastefully restored V&A Waterfront with its many shops, bars and restaurants. There is also an aquarium and one of the largest craft markets in Southern Africa. Boats offer tours of the harbour from the quayside and the whole place is always buzzing with life and activity. The City Bowl is home to many museums and historical buildings which can all be viewed from a 'topless' hop on/hop off tourist bus, complete with interesting commentary as you ride around the city.

The adventurous can climb up (or abseil down) Table Mountain, windsurf or kitesurf at Bloubergstrand Beach, dive in shark tanks, or do any one of a dozen more adrenalin pumping activities. For a more relaxed pace of life, there are miles of sandy beaches for soaking up the African sun, or enjoy a quiet stroll through the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront enjoys one of the best positions of any hotel in Cape Town - a prime waterfront position literally on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, with spectacular sea views across to Robben Island. The hotel is situated just a short stroll from the bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront shopping and entertainment centre.

The 177 rooms are all air-conditioned and offer either mountain views or views over the ocean and the hotel's private marina.

All the rooms are elegantly decorated and are fully equipped with direct dial phones, satellite TV, coffee making facilities, internet access, mini bar and hair-dryer.

The Tobago Restaurant, offering a wide selection of local and international cuisine, has consistently been rated as one of Cape Town's top restaurants. Tobago's Bar and Terrace, literally a stone's throw from the waves, is arguably the most spectacular spot in Cape Town at which to enjoy a cocktail while admiring another magnificent African sunset.

Selati Camp is the most unforgettable of all African experiences. Originally created without electricity to preserve the ambience, Selati Camp now has overhead fans and air-conditioning, while the camp is still lit at night by the gentle flicker of oil lamps, the warm glow of fires and the spectacular canopy of the Southern night sky.

An historic railway theme extends throughout, from original steam engine name plates, signals and other memorabilia in the lounge, to collector's pieces in each room.

This intimate camp has just 7 luxury thatched suites, each with a full bathroom en-suite and private alfresco shower. The camp's premier accommodation is the sumptuous and spacious Ivory Presidential Suite which offers colonial grandeur, a private pool and a private vehicle for safaris.
