The lavish Presidential Suite has a separate dining area, large living room, balcony with sun loungers, kitchenette, stylish 1930s baccarat crystal light fittings and an original desk from 1899, the year the hotel opened. The Garden Cottage Suites are housed within a row of restored cottages near The Cottage Pool, and each have their own rose garden enclosed by a picket fence, making them perfect for couples and honeymooners.

Restaurants And Bars

The food at Planet Restaurant is out of this world, with a mouthwatering menu of international dishes drawing on local and seasonal produce, while Oasis Bistro is open for buffet breakfast and lunch, with a sunny al fresco terrace overlooking the gardens and The Oasis Pool. The cosy Planet Bar is a stylish venue for pre- or post-dinner drinks, serving up cocktails, Champagne, fine wines and canapés. Don’t miss the opportunity to try one of the best afternoon teas in the city, with treats including a traditional South African ‘melktert’ (milk tart) and the signature Mount Nelson tea which has been expertly blended from six different teas, including rose petals from the hotel’s garden.

Helen's View

OUR South Africa SPECIALIST

"Mount Nelson, A Belmond Hotel, is one of our favourite hotels in Cape Town - the extensive and beautifully kept gardens create a real sense of calm, just steps from the city’s buzzing downtown area."

"The hotel’s famous afternoon tea is a real Cape Town institution, with an indulgent array of sandwiches, cakes and scones, plus a glass or two of Champagne if you’re feeling particularly decadent."

"The Librisa Spa is one of the best in Cape Town - a soothing treatment in these tranquil surroundings is the perfect way to relax after a busy day of sightseeing."

"Mount Nelson is Just a short walk from trendy Kloof Street, which is packed full of restaurants, bars and upmarket boutiques - perfect for souvenir shopping, you’ll find authentic South African textiles, jewellery, ceramics, tribal arts and crafts."

Jamaica

"You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality."

"With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it."

"At 65 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the soon-to-be-open East Cove will feature two new restaurants, three bars, an adult-only swimming pool, swimming lagoon and much more."
