Words and pictures cannot do this place justice, and you just have to see it and experience it yourself. Gorgeous grounds and rooms, and service too boot. 24 hr butlers---need I say more. Yes the price is high, but in this case you get what you paid for. Everyone from the manager Mitch to Lauren the chef to the butlers,... More

My husband and I stayed at Manna Bay for seven days at the end of May beginning of June. If I could give six stars to Manna Bay, I would. Everything was superb. It is like staying as a guest in someone's mansion with all the staff. The staff is professional and at the same time warm and friendly. They... More

This was my first time in Cape Town...and I was also traveling by myself. MannaBay did not disappoint. One entire wall of my room is floor to ceiling windows, overlooking Cape Town. The quality of everything from the furnishings, to the shampoo, the pillows, the high tea tray waiting for me in my room upon arrival at 11pm is impeccable.... More

This hotel is beyond anything you can imagine. Myself and my husband came and stayed to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we were made to feel so special and upon checking into our room we were surprised with a gorgeous platter of chocolates, strawberries and nougat wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The breathtaking view overlooking the city was amazing and then... More

This is a wonderful luxury boutique hotel. The architecture, design and art works are inspirational. Service was top notch, the food was excellent, and this facility is outstanding. We stayed in the Versailles Suite, which was very luxurious and comfortable. Thanks to Mitch and his great team for making our four day visit so memorable. Thanks to Samantha at Rhino... More

This was our third trip to Cape Town as a couple, with my partner having been eight times. MannaBay was a most wonderful home away from home. Everything, and I do mean everything, was first class and then some. We wanted for nothing. The building was a former home and it truly felt as if you were home. Whether in... More

My Wife and I spent 4 nights at this OUTSTANDING ACCOM this month. From arrival to departure nothing was an issue and the Breakfast and High Tea are 'to die for'. The outlook over Cape Town is outstanding by day and intoxicating by night (plus the view of Table Mountain at the back is not too shabby either). To the... More

I cannot find the words to describe our stay at Mannabay other than spectacular. The views of the city, the beautiful rooms, the food and the service far exceeded our expectations. The personalized service made this one if our best holidays ever. We would not hesitate to revisit or recommend this boutique hotel.

This is a perfect base for Capetown. The hotel is small. Very personal service. There are very few requests that can't be granted. We had such a grand stay. Mitch and all the staff deserve all superlatives. A nice way to start our African adventure. Bravo!

For our recent trip to South Africa, we used the services of a travel agent (Icon Expeditions) for almost all aspects of the trip except international air. They put this place on our itinerary.
