Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Vergelegen
A little off the beaten track, but definitely worth it for the chance to sample some of the region's best wine; the stunning surroundings and Cape Dutch architecture add to its splendour.
Cape Grace
With theatrical interiors and razor-sharp service, the only thing you'll be moaning about at this hotel is leaving.
The Roundhouse & Rumbullion
Save the best for last at The Roundhouse & Rumbullion, where desserts are decadent enough to make even the most die-hard dieter stray from their calorie-counting.
Ebb Tide Apartments
Ebb Tide Apartments are two beautifully decorated flats in Camps Bay, incredibly sophisticated and perfect for that upmarket stay in Cape Town...
Loading Bay Cafe
Load up on the carbs at the Loading Bay Café, a daytime hangout of the rich, famous and downright fabulous.
Mavericks
Fitted with everything you would expect and a bit more VIP rooms and private booths are also available
Grande Provence
Consistently listed among South Africa's top ten restaurants, Grand Provence - The Restaurant really is to-dine-for.
Kyoto Sushi Garden
If raw fish is your thing then Kyoto Sushi Garden may just be the place for you.
Mount Nelson
As the grande-dame of Cape Town's hotel scene, Mount Nelson has colonial charm all wrapped up.
Bukhara
Masala and mango chutney may not be top of your agenda while in Cape Town but Bukhara offers inspiring Indian cuisine within stylish surroundings. So much so celebrities can't get enough.
Azure
South African fare is the order of the day here at Azure, all served against jaw-dropping views.
V&A Waterfront
Flanked by the Atlantic on one side and Table Mountain on the other, the V&A Waterfront shopping mall provides a picturesque day out for those in serious need of a retail fix.
Splash Rentals
Make a splash with Splash Rentals and hire one of its luxurious vessels for the day.
Daddy Cool Bar
Don't worry, there's definitely an element of irony in the OTT bling décor. Enjoy Daddy Cool Bar for what it is and soak up its ridiculousness.
Martini Bar
Martinis of every kind are the order of the day here - shaken not stirred, of course.
The Twelve Apostles
There's a touch of old-school luxury at this spa resort.
Dock House
Those who like the personal touch will feel right at home here, with beautiful interiors and a location beside the Waterfront.
Royal Cape Yacht Club
The Royal Cape Yacht Club is home to the country's America's Cup Team and a playground of the rich, famous and downright fabulous. Worth a visit just to gawk at the glorious yachts on display.
Grande Provence – Owner’s Cottage
Rural, rustic and ridiculously romantic, this picturesque estate ticks every box.
Nobu
Waterfront Boat Co.
Sunset cruise along the coast with the Waterfront Boat Company. Suitably chilled sundowner in-hand, of course.
Terroir
While its location may not scream luxury, the food at Terroir is anything but terrifying. In fact, it's well worth coming out of your comfort zone for.
Baia
Camera-wielding tourists may flock here in their droves but spectacular seafood makes the crowds - and the occasional wait - more than worth it.
Grand Dédale Country House
With stunning views of the surrounding valley and mountains, this chic boutique hotel boasts six beautiful rooms and separate cottage on a large wine estate; sip a glass of delicious red and relax in sun-drenched luxury.
Long Street
Often referred to as the party capital of the Mother City, Long Street is also home to a slew of stylish shops for those wanting to punish the plastic.
