We have all been waiting patiently for summer to arrive, and with the warm weather and festivities just around the corner we cannot keep these exciting upcoming events to ourselves any longer!
Situated on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains, named after Simon Van Derstel, 1st Governor of the Cape Dutch Colony you will find Babylonstoren.
Spring is upon us, which means it's time to celebrate and enjoy being outdoors again, soaking up the sunshine. Take a look below at some exciting events which will be taking place this September in and around Cape Town.
5-7 Aug - Robertson Slow Food Festival
Time to head out to the country and enjoy the simple pleasures in life at the Robertson Wine Valley Slow food & wine festival from 5-7 August 2016. Experience the charm of country life in an intimate setting characterised by each farm’s unique personal touch.
And an exclusive look inside one of our Private Villa Dinners.
It's a question that we often get asked "What exactly do we do at BACK IN TOWN?" So we decided to show you! We recently hosted a fabulous and exclusive dinner party at one of our favourite Villas in Cape Town, Hamilton House, a beautiful 7-bedroom villa in the affluent, wind protected area of Fresnaye, on the Atlantic Seaboard. We arranged this evening to showcase a small aspect of what we do and to create a platform where we could meet our guests and have the opportunity for them to get to know us better and experience first hand the type of service standards we consistently provide to our clients.
Restaurant Review & Interview with Co-Owner Nigel Pace
A brand new (version 2.0 due to a fire) French brasserie and Members Club has opened in Cape Town. Located in Gardens in the historic Leinster Hall, The Stack inspires with décor, style, service and food! We've asked one of the owners Nigel a few questions about their testing journey, from building to despair to rebirth and now the realisation of a dream.
"Everybody always warned me that running your own business was about taking risks. Well, we certainly feel that we have now faced and overcome the most extreme adversity and that is certainly a good feeling. Every minor glitch will probably pale in comparison from here on.”
Nigel Pace, one of the brains behind the Stack, has had quite the journey to bring his dream to fruition.
Best bits breakdown:
June marks the beginning of the Whale Season here in South Africa, lasting until November. Why not make the most of this time of year with all the hotel specials and head to the Whale Coast to marvel at these majestic mammals. Contact us to find out more about our Winter Specials.
Films often start with a view of a bedroom that leads straight onto a white sand beach, with the glistening ocean stretching on forever. Naturally we all think either, “I wish” or “yeah right”, well we’re here to say that it does exist and that this luxurious hotel will deliver all of your dreams. We took a great sunset walk along the waters-edge in the evening before heading back for a delicious dinner. In the morning, we braved the cold water and dipped our toes in before we had to head back to the City.
