5 Star Hotel in Cape Town The Table Bay

The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward to.Richard Mullin

The glittering southern star of the Sunlux Collection and one of the top 5-star hotels in Cape Town, The Table Bay stands as a graceful gateway to the abundant wonders of South Africa's Western Cape Province. Opened in May 1997 by former South African president, Nelson Mandela, and straddling the historic V&A Waterfront against the iconic backdrop of Table Mountain, The Table Bay welcomes you to the best address in Cape Town and invites you to discover the ultimate in authentic South African experiences.

Embark on an African soul journey from your luxury accommodation at The Table Bay. Cape Town is not only home to the New 7th Wonder of the World, but it’s also the dramatic geographical location where two oceans meet. Perhaps it’s the merging of the cold Atlantic and warm Indian Oceans that have contributed to Cape Town’s melting pot status – this is a city where historical heritage meets modern innovation in a colourful clash of culture, cuisine, art and wine. And in the heart of all that is happening, your 5-star luxury accommodation at the V&A Waterfront offers you the perfect base from which to discover the unique spirit of Cape Town.

Ideally Positioned for Exploring The Mother City


Explore the Mother City and her iconic attractions in style and comfort when you book your Sunlux stay at The Table Bay, one of the leading 5-star hotels in Cape Town. Discover a symbol of freedom and tour Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was famously incarcerated; journey to the top of a natural wonder on the Table Mountain cableway, or hike to the summit of Cape Town to explore the area’s famous floral heritage up close. Take in the majestic unspoiled shoreline at Camps Bay and Clifton, or head to the South Peninsula where the warmer Indian Ocean beaches offer excellent swimming and surfing.

A Nirvana for Foodies and Wine Lovers


As South Africa’s unofficial food capital, Cape Town is a nirvana for foodies and wine lovers. Camissa Brasserie at The Table Bay features authentic South African cuisine with a modern 5-star twist. High Tea in The Lounge is a treat too. This revered British tradition is taken to new heights over three courses, each paired with specialist loose-leaf TWG teas. Want to experience wine tasting? The Cape Winelands are within easy reach of your luxury accommodation at the V&A Waterfront. Or, if you want to pair your wine with Cape Town’s pulsating energy, dine at one of the innumerable local restaurants and eateries in the City Bowl.
