Imagine that you have some very wealthy friends with really great taste in art, and they've invited you to stay in their stunning new modern house halfway up Table Mountain, with panoramic views of Cape Town. Staying at MannaBay isn't like staying at a hotel, even a boutique hotel. It really does feel like you're staying with your friends in...

Introduced to the MannaBay boutique hotel as a venue by Winefairy. Morning breakfast, full of delights. Exceptional service and fabulous choice of food. Struggling in this heat, we were surprised by a frozen pina colada popsicle to cool us down!

MannaBay is a boutique hotel, akin to a glamorous mansion on the foothills of Table Mountain. The joys of looking out the front of the property to Cape Town harbor and surrounding waterfront and back, directly up Table Mountain never faded. From the minute we arrived the hotel's staff made it very clear that our holiday, not just our stay...

We just stayed 3 nights at Mannabay. Everything was perfect. Very friendly management and service. Rooms and bathrooms are very nice and everything is very clean. Excellent breakfast, but best of all is tea time: it was so delicious that we weren't hungry anymore at dinner. Often the difference is in the details and Mannabay excels in all the little...

My husband and I stayed there to celebrate our honeymoon.

We just spent three nights on our first trip to Cape Town at MannaBay and the experience was wonderful. I'm so glad we chose to be by Table Mountain and away from the tourist-driven waterfront. The hotel itself is beautifully designed, and the Explorer room had an expansive view of the city from the bedroom and a view of the...
