Travel to Cape Town


The Marly, Camps Bay

24 April 2016

Words: Andrew Nagy / Images: The Marly

Most visitors are instantly drawn to The Marly because it collects awards like they’re going out of fashion. Camps Bay is not short on cool places to stay, but this, it seems, is something of a favourite. A boutique hotel with only 11 suites – don’t let the fact that you have to enter via a small shopping and dining complex put you off – this place has an air of classic Hollywood glamour.

Expect Art Deco accents on the furniture with contemporary touches thrown in for good measure. The white colour scheme only punctuated by the blue of the ocean outside. The view you can enjoy from your private terrace (enjoyed best while ordering from the 24-hour room service). Grab breakfast at Umi, a modern Japanese restaurant found downstairs – and be sure to go for for dinner, too, it does a mean black cod – then grab your towel and head over the road to the beach: a picture-perfect day in Camps Bay.
