Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Erinvale
Tee off and then enjoy a well-deserved G&T in the clubhouse afterward.
Cabrinha
Cabrinha may sound like a Brazilian cocktail, but it offers top-quality lessons and equipment in one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world.
Cape Bike
Get your adrenaline pumping and see the country surrounding Cape Town on the back of a serious Harley Davidson with Cape Bike Travel...
GrandWest Casino
Place your bets ladies and gentlemen! GrandWest Casino is the only real casino in Cape Town; go on, have a flutter.
Librisa Spa
Librisa Spa eases away the stresses and strains of everyday life with beautifully decked out treatment rooms, while a children's spa menu is at-hand for stressed-out kids.
Newlands Cricket Ground
Newlands Cricket Ground is one of the most beautiful cricket stadiums in the world; stop, stare or spectate.
Royal Cape
The South Africa Open is often played out here, so you know you'll be in good company in the clubhouse after a round or two on the green.
Labia
Labia is home to South Africa's oldest-surviving cinema and comes complete with old world-style surroundings. Alcohol can still be bought to take in with you too, which is always nice.
Clovelly Country Club
Swimming and golf may be an unlikely combination, but it's all possible here; be sure to pack your trunks alongside your argyle sweater.
Jiva Grande Spa
Jiva Grande Spa Great is famed for bringing Ayurvedic treatments to the Cape, providing a calm, traquil space within the hustle and bustle of the city.
Cruise iQ
Cruise iQ is the most upmarket way to cruise the Cape, with slick sailing vessels that glide across the water in style.
One&Only Spa
You can bet your bottom Rand that a spa with One&Only in the name is going to be good - and this outpost exceeds expectations.
Pearl Valley Golf
As one of South Africa's most prestigious golf courses, Pearl Valley is the place to tee off in style.
Sleepy Hollow
Enjoy a spot of horseriding at the foot of Chapman's Peak with Sleepy Hollow. Headless horseman not included.
Sanctuary Spa
Styled to mimic an underground cave, Sanctuary Spa receives mixed reactions thanks to its choice of aesthetics; that said, treatments are to-die-for.
Hoerikwaggo Trail
The Hoerikwaggo Trail isn't exactly 'roughing it in the wild', but it's still recommended for enthusiastic hikers.
Newlands Rugby Stadium
Newlands Rugby Stadium is the second-oldest of its kind in the world, and has been host to a number of international games during its time.
The Twelve Apostles
There's a touch of old-school luxury at this spa resort.
Armoury Boxing
Staying in shape is a priority amongst Capetonians-they have beaches and catwalks to prepare for. While there are loads of places to join the queue for the treadmill, this is easily the most authentic of gyms in Cape Town.
Splash Rentals
Make a splash with Splash Rentals and hire one of its luxurious vessels for the day.
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.
Wine Valley Trails
Wine Valley Horse Trails does exactly what it says on the tin; offers rides through the wine valley. Don't drink and ride!
Waterfront Boat Co.
Sunset cruise along the coast with the Waterfront Boat Company. Suitably chilled sundowner in-hand, of course.
