The Marly

Cape Town, South Africa

The Marly Boutique Hotel, taking its name from Chateau de Marly, built in the 17th Century for the leisure activities of Louis XIV and his family, says it all. Nestled perfectly between the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range and Camps Bay Beach, our 38-room, five-star boutique hotel is a fresh take on luxury – and intricately sophisticated showpiece where everything is effortless.

Lean on your balcony and watch the less fortunate queue for parking alongside one of the city's most beautiful beaches, while you order another cocktail, then stroll over to your beach umbrella and towels, set up by The Marly staff. A top score for its easy beach access as well as the sea and mountain views, but you are also in the thick of Camps Bay's bustling sunset strip, with a large number of restaurants and bars right on your doorstep.
