Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa

This spring 2024, Cape Grace, A Fairmont Managed Hotel unveils a new design inspired by South Africa’s heritage, culture, and craftsmanship. Located on the iconic V&A Waterfront and retaining the much-loved charm for which the hotel is historically known, Cape Grace has been gracefully redesigned by globally renowned interior and architecture firm, 1508 London who have paid homage to Cape Town’s evolution from a bustling trading port to a cosmopolitan hub. The interiors are a curated celebration of the country’s diverse narrative, from its array of landscapes and languages, vibrant art, and fascinating cultures. Handpicked artwork from local artists will be showcased throughout the new hotel and materials chosen for a contemporary, understated look that harmonizes with Cape Town and its natural surroundings. The redesign includes a new look for each of the 112 rooms and suites which feature incredible views of either the Waterfront or the iconic Table Mountain, with the transformation extending to a new Fairmont Spa and culinary vision by the renowned Gregory Czarnecki. 

On the doorstep of the city’s finest cultural, culinary and historical landmarks, Cape Grace has quickly earned a reputation for being the best in town, since its original opening in 1996. In this new chapter, the hotel will build on its legacy of playing host to leading luminaries from the world of politics, film and business as it begins a new chapter of hospitality as the gateway to explore the very best of South Africa.
