Renovations to two Cape Town boutique hotels completed

The Long Beach and The Franschhoek, two of Cape Town’s most prestigious boutique hotels, have recently re-opened following extensive renovations.

The Long Beach in the fishing village of Kommetjie  has seen  changes to all rooms. The two superior double rooms upstairs have been converted into suites averaging an area of 70sqm each, with private lounge areas that open up onto magnificent balconies that make you feel as if you are right on the beach! The downstairs suite has been increased in size to 95sqm with its own private lounge area and patio that flows to the pool. In all rooms the beds have been reconfigured to face the sea, so that guests can enjoy sea views from their beds just as they can from the bathrooms. In addition, the deck in front of the public areas has been increased by a further 20sqm towards the sea. The interior décor has been completed by Anna Carst of ‘Inside Outside Design’, and she has carried through the theme of blues, creams and sea greens with a splash of colour to reflect the glorious beach of which the property derives its name.

The Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands saw two of  its existing suites converted into magnificent pool suites, each with their own private pool and garden/courtyard area. The private courtyards are an average of 38sqm in size including the pool that flows directly from the lounge areas through glass windows. For guests looking for the ultimate in luxury and privacy, these pool suites are best! Carrying though a French chic element in the interiors, the pool designs are a greatly impressive feat; on-lookers can benefit from a continual flow from the bedroom through to the lounge area, pool and finally the courtyard area.
