Where To Stay In Cape Town

We went to South Africa for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing. We did a Safari for the first four nights and the second four nights we stayed in Cape Town. In this post, I'm sharing with you the two boutique hotels we stayed at in Cape Town, located precisely in the Constantia area. When we decided on visiting Cape Town, we knew for sure we didn't want to stay in any of the bigger hotels. We wanted to stay in boutique hotels so that our experience was more hands on and intimate. As much as internet age allows us to research and plan out our trips wherever we go in the world, nothing beats a local feel and local knowledge. This is why we chose the two boutique hotels, The Alphen Boutique Hotel and Nova Constantia Boutique Hotel. Both are located in a suburban area just a few minutes outside Cape Town. The area is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. We knew that Uber was cheap and we would have no issues getting in and out of Cape Town. 

The Alphen Boutique Hotel was so beautiful, I loved the decor and the victorian feel. The hotel has multiple restaurants on the property. I especially enjoyed the restaurant staff. They were extremely friendly and helpful. A lot of locals who live in the Constantia area also visit the hotel restaurants for lunch and dinner. We made a few friends there. The hotel staff was so lovely to leave a bottle of champagne, a note and decorated our bed with flowers as welcome in celebrating our honeymoon. I've shared pictures below. 
 We left The Alphen and spent our last few nights at Nova Constantia Boutique Hotel. We felt like we had gone to stay with family. The welcome was warm and very intimate. The property was quiet, and the grounds clean and relaxing. They have a chef on property that makes fresh breakfast and we enjoyed our morning coffee right off the pool. The room was plush, and cozy with the feel of luxury. The manager gave us recommendations on where to go for dinner, wine tasting nearby and were very hands on in assisting us in whatever we needed. See below for my pictures. I hope you enjoy them. 
Stay tuned for another post on what to do in Cape Town. 


  1. Oh what a beautiful Honeymoon....strewn rose petals and all! The Alphen Boutique Hotel: I loved the Easel Mirror and the Vanity. The Nova Constantia: The bedroom mirror and the color choices. The wood and tiles and accents in both boutique hotels were unique. Happy you are home safe.
