Summer Hideaways in the hub of cosmopolitan Camps Bay - The Marly

Summer in Cape Town is one of the most favourable times of the year. A good 3 months’ worth of warm days and balmy nights to spend in a city open to those with a cultivated taste. One of the main attractions of Camps Bay is the famous stretch of coastline. Being iconic for its palm-fringed beaches and cosmopolitan appeal, the coastline lends a touch of Riviera-inspired glamour, whilst retaining the local energy.

The Marly, a five-star boutique hotel takes its name from the 17th-century leisure palace Château de Marly of the Sun King, Louis XIV. The Marly features a contemporary beach ambiance and welcomes guests with 11 luxury suites tailored to offer a most satisfying stay.

A nightly turndown service is offered with in-room dining and travel transfers to ensure guests can see the best of what Cape Town has to offer.

Guests can also escape and unwind with a variety of spa treatments on offer or relax on the private pool terrace, in addition, guests can sip on cocktails and take in the magnificent views. Should you have the desire to remain close by, slip across to one of the Kove Collection’s celebrated restaurants.

Camps Bay is conveniently situated for adventure-seekers with an abundance of unique experiences. Choose to spend the day on one of the many beautiful beaches that run from Clifton to Hout Bay, charter a luxury yacht or catamaran and slip into the refreshing blue of the Atlantic Ocean. Various hikes are an option up nearby Lion’s Head or the Twelve Apostles. The hike ranges from beginner to experienced levels, while the Table Mountain cableway offers a less taxing way to see the city from above. Guests can take in the culture after dark with local productions at Theatre on the Bay or see Cape Town as it lights up from the Wheel of Excellence in the V&A Waterfront.

For the gourmands, head upstairs to Chinchilla; the only rooftop bar and café of its kind in Camps Bay. Chinchilla offers patrons 360° views out over the ocean, Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles, and its curated menu features a range of signature cocktails and light café-style dishes. Feel in the mood for more of a choice? Fellow Kove eateries Umi, Paranga, Zenzero, La Belle and Bilboa can all be found close by, making The Marly a destination of myriad options.
