From the imperial indulgence of the Versailles suite to the acts of pith-helmeted derring-do which inspired the Explorer room, MannaBay is synonymous with timeless elegance and modern luxury. All the magnificent bedrooms have state-of-the-art flat screen TVs with a variety of satellite channels – you might also want to take advantage of the extensive DVD collection, or iPod docking stations. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and have underfloor heating if it gets a little chilly. In the opulent, white, marble bathrooms, you’ll find indulgent Moya products which use uniquely South African ingredients such as Rooibos and the essential oils of indigenous Cape Snowbush, Buchu, and Blue Mountain Sage. But it’s the imagination of the interior design at MannaBay which will really catch your eye, where intriguing furniture and exquisite art work abound.

The space and views are unsurpassed and with just seven suites, MannaBay offers one of the most intimate experiences available in the fairest Cape.

Catch a few rays on the vast wooden sun deck or swim beneath the splendour of Table Mountain as the bright, African sunlight pings off the azure water. There is a library rippling with African travel literature and home to an enormous television, ideal for catching a game of sport or watching a DVD. There’s also a writing desk and a laptop with full internet access for those who need to catch up with the outside world.

After afternoon tea (or even before for that matter), why not take a G&T in the lounge bar as the sun slips into the Atlantic beyond the glittering cityscape or unwind among the fine percale cottons of a four-poster King?

And with prices starting at R1,000 for a suite including breakfast, high-tea and a complimentary airport transfer, it’s hard to find a better value for money 5 Star experience in the Mother City!
