After work, cocktails with colleagues and friends are just as popular in Cape Town as purple sunsets over the ocean. The Vineyard is the ultimate trendy 2020 destination to enjoy these special moments. Insider tip: you will discover that every Monday, a wine tasting is offered in the Garden Lounge or on the hotel lawns. On weekends, families from Cape Town and their children come to enjoy this exceptional place.
Discover new flavours
One of the best moments of the day is the breakfast buffet in the Square. The restaurant is also renowned for its classic and contemporary menu. Awarded by Conde’ Nast as “Best Best Best New Restaurant of the Year, 5-Stars Restaurant Awards”, “One Plate” in the Gourmet Guide in 2018 and “Haute Grandeur Global Restaurants Awards Winner”, Myoga is a restaurant recognized both locally and internationally.
Chef Germaine takes fusion cuisine to new heights. With a bachelor’s degree in Earth Studies, he has been searching for ingredients since the age of 12. As he was preparing to enroll in his master’s degree, he won a cooking competition. He quickly made a choice, and today he lives for his passion. In Myoga, everything is organic and produced on site. Another must. If the sun is shining, head to the pool bar, Splash, for a light lunch and a relaxing dinner.
Rejuvenate body and mind
Next to Splash is the wellness center and Angsana, the spa. The gym and yoga studio are also accessible to nonresidents. Look into it, the spa has a reputation as one of the best in Cape Town. After a heavenly treatment, conserve your new energy and take a quiet walk in the garden. You can also book a guided tour of the garden guided by the resident horticulturist, which will end with a generous afternoon snack.
An ecological and responsible hotel
The Vineyard is an award-winning leader in the responsible hotel industry and has implemented a number of sustainable development initiatives. Energy is supplied by 80 solar panels and the Darling wind farm. Rainwater is collected and the hotel recycles 98% of its waste. The establishment is a certified member of fair tourism and is involved in a number of organisations such as the Event Greening Forum, of which it is a founding member. Also a member of Bird Life SA and Eco Atlas, The Vineyard supports Table Mountain National Park in its conservation efforts. At The Vineyard, you will only find fair trade, sustainable and ethically-produced products, such as wines, coffees, meats, seafood, products and stationery. It’s hard to believe that The Vineyard is so close to the Claremont shopping area and the trendy New-lands coffee shops. Yet this welcoming hotel, with its friendly staff and secret garden, could be miles away. The place to be.
