Travel + Leisure says..."Inspired by Masai architecture, in a ridgetop acacia grove; the swimming pool is fed by melting ice from Mount Kilimanjaro." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This property, set beneath giant acacia trees and beside a natural spring, lies in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. "Watching hundreds of monkeys walking single file to the river to get a drink in the morning was the highlight of my vacation." Inspired by local Masai primary colors and shapes, "attractive and comfortable rooms" are furnished with African murals painted by a local artist. "The staff knew us on a first-name basis and vice versa. It was the best service and friendliest atmosphere I've ever encountered at a hotel." All meals are served at the main restaurant; "plentiful buffets include local specialties, but the food is just okay." The "unbeatable location" provides the opportunity to see elephants, lions, baboons, and more than 450 species of birds." ~From cntraveler.com

This hotel says...

The spectacular Burj Al Arab-designed to resemble the graceful sails of an Arabian dhow-soars to a height of three hundred and twenty one meters-dominating the Dubai coastline-The all suite hotel is situated on a man made island some two hundred and eighty meters-offshore and is linked to the mainland by a slender-gently curving causeway-Each of the two hundred and two suites is arranged over two floors and all with floor to ceiling-wall to wall windows and tranquil views of the sea-The highest standards of personal service are enhanced by private reception desks on every floor-In-suite check-in-a brigade of exclusive butlers that provide around the clock assistance and unrivaled attention never ceases to amaze our guests.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."This iconic, sail-shaped hotel—which soars 1,053 feet over the Persian Gulf, on an artificial island off Jumeirah Beach—literally epitomizes Dubai’s over-the-topness. And though the property, which was completed in 1999, is ancient by local standards, guests still stop to gawk at the all-suite deluxe hotel’s nearly 600-foot-high atrium when they first enter (many do so after arriving via helicopter or chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph limo). The 202 massive suites (which start at 560 square feet and go all the way to 2,560) are all bilevel, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows; dedicated butler service on every floor; fully equipped private bars; offices with automated everything; and bed linens, furniture, and window treatments upholstered in opulent velvets and satins. The sprawling baths are stocked with full-size Hermès toiletries (other little gifts, like Themae amenities arrive in guests’ suites each night). The property’s common areas are equally excessive; of the six restaurants, Al Mahara, serving high-end seafood, is designed to look as if it were underwater, with a huge central aquarium in the dining room." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Feel like a sheikh in your own palace" at this sail-shaped Dubai landmark, where interiors are embellished with 24-karat gold and the atrium lobby rises some 600 feet. All rooms are duplex suites with floor-to-ceiling windows (to take in the Arabian Gulf views), mosaic-tiled bathrooms, Hermès products, and a pillow menu with 17 choices. The Royal Suite has a revolving bed and a private cinema. Contemporary European cuisine is served at the top-floor Al Muntaha restaurant; the ground-floor Junsui has 12 Japanese cooking stations. A staff-to-suite ratio of eight-to-one means "they anticipate your every wish and then some." ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Two movable pedestrian bascule bridges provide access from the bustling waterfront to this quiet, mansard-roofed hotel on its own private quay. The sumptuous interiors here (all redone in 2008) include dark-wood antiques, blue-and-white Dutch crockery, and richly patterned fabrics that evoke the region's raw, exotic blooms. The 120 large and luxurious rooms, many with striped wallpaper and botanical prints, have one-of-a-kind artisanal pieces, like traditionally forged iron lamps and whimsical chandeliers made with dangling Delft saucers. The staff is warm and welcoming, whether they're seating you at a handsome secretarial desk for check-in, delivering refreshments poolside, pampering you with African-infused treatments at the spa, or arranging your sail around the harbor on the hotel's own 56-foot yacht." -From Travel + Leisure

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This sandstone-colored mainstay on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront has a backdrop of Table Mountain and is "one of the most beautiful hotels in the world." Signal Restaurant serves "extraordinary food with amazing service" in dishes like cumin-crusted ostrich and Malay-spiced springbok loin. Bascule bar claims it stocks the Southern Hemisphere's largest selection of whiskeys. "Every part of the hotel, from rooms to restaurants, is welcoming and beautiful"—interiors showcase hand-painted fabrics and custom-made metal, glass, and leather. Lodgings reflect Cape influences and have blue, red, green, and gold highlights. A facial at the top-floor spa comes with Table Mountain views; also offered are massages inspired by the Khoisan people, using one of the first recorded essential oils in Africa and circular massage techniques that mirror tribal dances." -From Conde Nast Traveler

   Green Details

Cape Grace believes that ensuring the health, safety, security and environmental impact of each of its employees, guests, visitors, contractors, and suppliers is critical to the success of the business. Health, safety, security and responsible tourism and environmental practices are adhered to according to local legislation and statutory requirements.

To achieve these standards and look beyond the obvious, we founded the Cape Grace Planet Committee. The committee's main goal is to drive environmental awareness through the support of responsible tourism practices, while simultaneously maintaining exceptional service levels and guest satisfaction.

Not only do we want you to have every indulgent experience imaginable at Cape Grace, but we want to make sure this is achieved responsibly.

 

ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL:

We acknowledge that as a result of the legislative, social and economic inequalities of the past, we have an obligation to address the differences that exist in South Africa. We strive to effect broad based economic transformation through training and skills development, enterprise development, job creation and procurement.

We are committed to promoting a better quality of life for all with particular attention to social integration, especially with issues such as health, child protection and women empowerment.

The personal well-being of all our staff is very important, which is why the Peer Educators program is in place. Certain employees have been selected to become Peer Educators in terms of Cape Grace's Employee Wellbeing Program. Their duties include but are not limited to initiating discussions regarding staff welfare; identifying any well-being issues related to HIV/AIDS and initiating and arranging staff training with regards to HIV/AIDS.

Salt is a registered non-profit and public benefit community outreach organisation, affiliated to the Assembly of God Church in the Cape Town suburb of Table View. They work with other faith based organisations in order to bring change and uplift the local community. Cape Grace has chosen to financially support this organisation in their various feeding projects.

We've also aligned ourselves with the Desmond Tutu HIV /Aids Foundation which is run in association with the Desmond Tutu HIV Centre at the University of Cape Town's Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine. By using a combination of academic expertise and social activism, the foundation is involved in a number of initiatives. Cape Grace is proud to be associated with an organisation that tackles HIV/AIDS head-on.

Luxurious accommodations include tented suites featuring four-poster beds graced with duvets and plaid accent fabrics. Colonial furnishings in all and outdoor showers in some bring a sense of history and location to this safari outpost. Private verandas survey the active hippo and crocodile scene below as guests sip British tea or wine and nosh on African specialties of barbecued meats and fresh, local produce. Novice outdoorsmen will feel comfortable on "Big Five" game drives accompanied by a pair of Masai warrior guides dressed in full regalia." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club

This hotel says...

Located high on the slopes of Africas second highest mountain The Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club offers an enormous range of excursions and activities without spending hours or days travelling between each.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Recently renovated 1950's-era hunting lodge in the Mount Kenya foothills. Appearing more like a country manor than a hotel, the atmosphere is laid back, yet refined. A picture-perfect swimming pool attracts those looking to kick back while others take part in horseback riding excursions or games of tennis and croquet. Guest rooms are aristocratic in design with mahogany beds and coffee tables. Suites add fireplaces and verandas to the list. Most unusual is the Zebar lounge lying directly on the Equator causing servers to traverse hemispheres when attending to diners. Tusks serves regional fare and international favorites from a buffet with outstanding views of Mount Kenya and the scenery surrounding the countryside hotel." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Opened by actor William Holden in 1959 at the base of Mount Kenya, 75 miles north of Nairobi, this equatorial property has played host to many dignitaries, including Lyndon Johnson and the Aga Khan. Spread over 100 acres of lawns, streams, and gardens, "it's a super place to stay." All rooms have hardwood floors, verandas, and fireplaces—"perfect for unwinding after a safari." Both the Tusks and Zebar restaurants have views of Mount Kenya. The former serves dishes like smoked rainbow trout with fennel, apple, and chilies; the equator bisects the latter. White peacocks roam the grounds." ~From cntraveler.com
