A wonderful Winter getaway

If you’re thinking a mid-Winter escape, a jolly good option is the The Capital 15 on Orange Hotel & Spa, currently enjoying a Winter Hotspot promotion. 

It’s brilliantly situated in Cape Town’s richly historical Gardens, just a short stroll down to vibrant Kloof Street … think trendiest of cafes, coolest cocktail bars, swishest people. There’s also the Planetarium and the V&A Waterfront a few kilometers away … so you won’t be short of anything to do.

In fact, you don’t have to go far for a proper treat  … the hotel boasts a great restaurant, pool and bar deck – all of which have views of Table Mountain and Signal Hill, and a gym, and it’s also home to The Grotto … with a moody jungle vibe, you’ll find a spa bar with a curated selection of wellness beverages, hydrotherapy pools, a steam room and sauna, a pola plunge pool (for the brave!) and glorious Serenity Nests – think being  swathed in cozy luxury with a choice of meditation or sound therapy. Add to that a menu of spa treatments and packages – think Winter Warmer or Date Night spa treats, with welcome hot drinks and personalised massages, pedis or mineral mist riturals,  and luxurious gifts to take home … it’s the perfect way to spend a chilly day.

There’s a range of accommodation … from standard rooms to executive suites to one and two bedroom apartments … we rather like the idea of booking into one of the three fancy pods … the Moet & Chandon, Glenmorangie or Hennessy Signature Pods are not only super luxurious but you’re also welcomed with the obvious drinks and gormet platters. Bliss.

The special rates – from now until August – start at R2208 per room. There’s a brilliant Winter Hotspot competition running, with prizes of ten two-night stays for two people including breakfast at any of The Capital properties in an entry-level room, as well as vouchers from Nom Nom Jewels, ARC Cosmetics and Corona … you’ll find the details on the website.
