GLAM review: Your summer hideout

Conveniently located a stone’s throw away from the V&A Waterfront, The Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel offers a wonderful escape from Cape Town’s bustling city centre, with its great service, delicious food, comfortable rooms, five-star spa and gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain.

Relax in one of the 177 nautical-inspired rooms with their free Wi-fi, tea and coffee facilities and stocked minibars before heading down to Tobago’s Restaurant for a proudly-SA meal. You’re in for local classics, like Cape Malay curry, pasta and scrumptious seafood, and the friendly waitrons will lend a helping hand if you’re not sure what to try. This is also where you’ll enjoy your buffet breakfast, which includes fresh fruit, pastries, pancakes, omelettes and salmon.

After some pampering? Visit the Amani Spa, with its host of packages ranging from indulgent massages and facials to mani-pedis and an oxygenated vitality pool. If you’re worried about keeping your summer body in check, there’s a fitness centre on site for all your workout needs, and you can also ask the concierge to arrange activities like hiking, mountain biking and paragliding if you’d like.

But if all that feels too much like hard work, rather unwind in the hotel’s heated rim-flow pool, with its magnificent views of the glistening ocean and Robben Island. Whatever you decide, Radisson Blu will be your favourite summer hangout.
