Top tier hotels, fabulous nightlife, a variety of recreation and gorgeous views of Table Mountain, make Cape Town an ideal South African destination. We visited the 329-room Table Bay Hotel during the grand opening party for the new 50-seat Camissa Brassiere bar and restaurant.
“To keep up with international trends and to attract more groups, Camissa was rebuilt,” says GM Shaun Tregoning. “We will expand on this idea by refurbishing the 200-seat Atlantic Grill restaurant in late June/July for a new group experience.”
Groups enter through a bright octagonal gazebo covered in floor-to-ceiling marble walls and into the lobby with plush seating and woodblock floors. High tea is served in the 60-seat lounge with open truss ceilings, two giant fireplaces, fresh flowers and gorgeous views of Table Mountain and the harbor.
The hotel sits between Robben Island and Table Mountain, where cool Atlantic breezes sift through the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront harbor and over 240 retail and entertainment outlets. The Table Bay Hotel is just a trot from Cape Town International Airport, the Cape Town International Convention Centre and several bars, restaurants, entertainment and nightlife. Notable meeting spaces include the 300-seat on-site ballroom.
ECCO Tours DMC transports groups to the nine wine farms of Constantia Glen Winery, located in what we’re told is the oldest wine-producing region in South Africa. Wine tastings and dining for 325 pax unfold amidst the rolling vineyards and mountaintops. You’ll feel totally at peace as you sip some of the winery’s signature Sauvignon Blanc while overlooking the endless green landscape.-Gianna Wyatt
