Four of us arrived absolutely exhausted after traveling 24 hours from our home in New Jersey. The fatigue melted away as we entered the gates leading to Manna Bay. This is a beautifully decorated oasis with breathtaking views of Table Mountain. We were greeted with champagne, and that was only the beginning of the gracious hospitality we experienced throughout our... More

You wake here from your massive, comfy bed to share breakfast with a view of the city and table mountain, beautiful.... More

MannaBay was a highlight amongst many when we visited SA. The staff was super attentive and helped with every aspect of our trip from laundry to tours and dinner.

This hotel has got everything that your heart could ever desire. From a driver to take you around, to a GHD to keep those frizzy hairs in place. Everything in this hotel is so beautiful and I could spend weeks there to get around to everything there is to do. From spending time in the pool or enjoying the view... More

The hotel has a driver that can take guests to points in the city which is so convenient. They also lend guests gps for easy orientation while exploring. They provide free wifi and laundry service which is fantastic if... More
