Romantic Hotels in Cape Town: A Heavenly Boutique Hotel

An elaborate mansion with only six individually-styled accommodation options, 21 Nettleton prides itself on being the most sought-after destination in Cape Town, ideal for newly wed couples to celebrate the first chapter of their lives together. Its real drawcard, however, is that it’s situated atop a cliff overlooking heart-stoppingly stunning views.

21 Nettleton provides honeymooners with a most memorable stay, with the opportunity to do as little or as much as you’d like. Drink in the golden sunsets, panoramic views of Clifton’s famous beaches, and enjoy outdoor massages and private garden dinners under the stars.

Relish the Suite Life

When it comes to honeymoon suites in Cape Town, look no further than our personalised luxury accommodation. If you’re looking for the pinnacle of opulence, our Presidential Penthouse Suite on the very top floor offers 360-degree ocean and mountain views that will make you feel like you’re on top of the world. The interior features highly sought-after Biedermeier pieces, renaissance artworks, and traditional Pixiu dragons guarding the entrance. The Penthouse epitomises private luxury, perfect for weddings and honeymoons in South Africa.

Just below the Penthouse, the Steinway Suite looks out onto the Twelve Apostles mountain range. With a large terrace facing the ocean, sunset views are out of this world. The private library and Steinway Grand Piano add to the romance of this suite. On the other hand, the Queen Suite, with pastel pinks and floral patterns, reminds one of a farm scene from the late 1800s. The main attraction here, however, is the bedroom bath overlooking the sweeping views! 

With an open-plan bath area and terrace, the King Room is located one floor below the main garden in a secluded part of the house. Finally, the Lion’s Head Room is an intimate space overlooking one side of Lion’s Head, an iconic peak in Table Mountain National Park. Whichever accommodation option you choose, exclusivity and spellbinding views are a given.
