The 12 Apostles Hotel – Presidential Suite.

I always seek out the best room in a hotel, drawn by the luxury and opulence, I am also intrigued by the choice of colour, fabric, style and mood that designers choose to create a suite that will hope to host some of the world’s more influential people. I never expect to overnight, just to linger for a while, camera in hand, taking in the magic – and imagine how it would feel to lead such a life of spoiling.


Above is the lounge and kitchenette area. The style personifies class. Light and warmth. I love the distressed whites, comfy couches, big cushions. Its a place that welcomes you to relax and feel at home.


The view from the balcony towards the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s Head.


The beautiful bedroom with two-way glass to enable the guests to enjoy the view without compromising on privacy. Look at that bedspread and wallpaper – want!

I had been told at lunch that this bathroom offered the best view of any in the city, and I have to agree.


The detail, of which there is much to take in. The B|Africa products are on offer.


All decor is by Bea Tollman, and I admire her.

One of the things that I appreciated most about this Presidential Suite, is that it can be bought as a single unit, although there are adjoining rooms should it be preferred as a unit for a family or group. I appreciate that flexibility.

A bit of fun. This is where Lady Gaga spent four days when in Cape Town earlier this year. She never left her room. I can see why.

This room inspired me to feature some of the other Presidential Suites I have seen in the city’s top Hotels. There’s a story right there.
