Cape Town was our first stop on our honeymoon and MannaBay set the tone for a fantastic South African Honeymoon. Mitch and his staff went great lengths to ensure our stay was comfortable, enjoyable and extremely special.

Can't say enough about this place. We just stayed there four nights and were amazed by everything - the room, the building, the service, the food, and the decor and art. We took the advice of Mitch and the rest of the staff on what to do, restaurants, and shopping and it was perfect. The attention to detail is incredible,... More

Our first visit and it was exceptional! Stunning views of Cape Town at front and Table Mountain in the back garden! Service exceptional and nothing was too much trouble. Afternoon tea was spot on. So friendly and attentive without being OTT.

When we arrived to CapeTown we were pleasantly greeted by Mitch & the MannaBay staff, when we arrived it was 'high tea' and we were greeted with champagne and delicious snacks. We were promptly checked us in and Mitch informed us that he had already made dinner reservations and transportation arrangements for that evening. (Every restaurant recommendation they made was...

We spent 5 wonderful, words-can-not-do-it-justice nights at this hotel. It is superbly managed, gorgeously decorated with warm modern flair, and so guest friendly. The breakfast was fantastic, and every time we asked for sightseeing suggestions, the staff hit a bullseye. The website is mostly spot-on in showing how beautiful the property is, but even the website does not do it... More
