Constantia Uitsig

Constantia Uitsig

On a private working wine estate, Contantia Uitsig Hotel offers the privacy and charm you seek while just twenty minutes away from Cape Town’s city center. In the shadow of Table Mountain, Constantia Uitsig provides extra pampering through its elegant, state-of-the-art spa. In addition to a variety of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments, the spa is unmatched in South Africa offering “Les Aromes du Vin,” a body treatment based on the aromatic components of fine wines.

Sixteen opulent garden rooms and suites take full advantage of the surrounding mountains, vineyards, and gardens. As one contented guest describes, "The bliss is in the detail: fluffy white towels and gowns, roses freshly picked from the garden, desks that encourage reflection, porcelain and wood, deep drapes, snug chairs, and generous eiderdowns. These are rooms that are hard to leave."

Each room or suite offers a private veranda, marble finishes, under-floor heating, tea and coffee making facilities, air conditioning, WiFi, mini bar, turn down service, and more.

Three award-winning restaurants serve appetizing fare to travelers from far and near. Fresh seasonal produce, uncomplicated flavors, classical elegance, and extensive wine list all combine to make La Colombe a favorite of Cape Town locals. The Constantia Uitsig Restaurant features a stylish, relaxed atmosphere and Mediterranean Provencal cuisine. Open for breakfast, tea, and lunch, the River Café is well-loved for its delicious breakfasts and handmade pastries.

The City Bowl, the central amphitheater-shaped area of Cape Town, is bounded on one side by Table Bay and on the other by the dramatic peaks Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak, Lion’s Head, and Signal Hill. A Mediterranean climate, rugged mountains, considerable coastline, inland valleys, coastal plains, and semi-desert fringes make it comparable to southern California, so travel and exploration are possible year-round. Any visit to Cape Town should involve a visit to one of its many beaches. Their close proximity to each other even allows for several different beach visits in a single day.

As Cape Town’s most notable and visited attraction, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is known for its waterfront shopping and as a departure point to various other sites of interest. Built on top of a portion of the docks at the port of Cape Town, it continues to function as a working dock, and visitors can watch ships come and go.

The city’s extensive transport system takes guests to other exciting venues and cultural attractions including Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Artscape Theatre Centre, Cape Winelands, and Cape Town Stadium, a 2010 FIFA World Cup venue. Dolphin and whale watching are also popular tourist attractions.
