Newly-opened Cape Town hotel LABOTESSA harmoniously blends history and forward-thinking modern hotel trends to create a hospitality brand that combines the best of all worlds.
An intimate establishment made up of six luxury Signature suites and one grand penthouse boasting three bedrooms, its focus is on old-world elegance with all the bells and whistles of contemporary hotel living.
Hoteliers Jan Fourie and Johan du Plessis were inspired by the beautiful circa 1700s building when conceiving the look, feel and attitude of the hotel. They drew on its heritage when creating the interior, while at the same time remaining cognizant of the need to cater to a very discerning type of traveller, expectant of every amenity.
“We’re thrilled with the way the hotel has turned out,” said co-owner and hotel manager, Du Plessis. “The result is incredibly faithful to our original vision for this truly special heritage building, and we can’t wait for our first guests to experience the way in which we have recalibrated the scale of luxury.”
