The Spade Boutique Hotel and Spa is set to open in Khayelitsha next month, the first luxury hotel to open in a township in South Africa.
The 4-star luxury hotel is the brainchild of former flight attendant Annette Skaap.
The hotel, which will open on December 5, is situated 24km away from the Cape Town International Airport and less than half an hour from other major attractions.
Celebrating Khayelitsha, known as one of the largest and the fastest-growing townships in South Africa, guests can immerse themselves in the diverse culture, friendly people, lifestyle and entertainment spots when they visit this luxury property.
"The intention is to make The Spade Boutique Hotel and Spa a space not only for leisure, business and relaxation but to disconnect and reconnect," said Skaap.
The Spade Boutique Hotel and Spa offers 13 suites, some with the backdrop of Table Mountain, Cape Winelands and Helderberg Mountains.
All rooms are kitted with a smart TV, free wi-fi, coffee and tea making facilities and luxury amenities.
There's also an in-house gym, a spa, a heated outdoor swimming pool, restaurant and bar, business services facilities and complimentary shuttle services.
Skaap, an avid traveller who visited Bali, Singapore, Dubai and parts of Africa, aims to bring the world to Africa with this luxury hotel.
“This project has been in the making since 2018 but was derailed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
"With this hotel we wish to accommodate our guests, local and international, to experience the other side of Cape Town and more beyond the city. We wish for our guests to leave with an incredible South African experience that will stay with them forever," she said.
