Villa Zest, located right in the middle of Cape Town and close to most attractions, has recently re-opened having undergone extensive renovations and refurbishment. Internally, the décor is simply remarkable, impressively taking inspiration from the care-free days of the 70’s and catapulting it into the modern world creating a wonderful combination of vibrant and contemporary colour, light and creativity. There are fourteen double guest rooms; each one designed to maximise space and light. All rooms have an impressive range of facilities including king size bed, ensuite bathroom, a laptop safe, plasma TV, free Wi-fi, air conditioning, designer teas and pod coffee machines, and locally made biodegradable bathroom amenities. Included in the services offered are a 24-hour concierge, a day room, breakfast served until 11am every day, an all-day dining menu, in-house laundry, a bar, and Spa Treatments, either in the comfort of your room, or at the Zest Spa treatment room in its sister hotel just 3 minutes’ walk away.

Stayed here earlier this year at the start of our South African holiday. It's really convenient for the V and A waterfront as well as central Cape Town. The staff are both helpful and charming, the rooms excellent and the overall experience can't be bettered at what is a very reasonable price. First class!

This was our favorite place to stay out of 2 months of travel in South Africa. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, stylish and so conveniently located. The pool, bar area and breakfast were in icing on the cake! Outstanding service by the staff and we loved the coffee/tea station and afternoon treats!!!
