Unusual, innovative accommodation in Cape Town
Yes, there’s always (many) local 5-star hotels to book your stay at, but there’s so much more to Cape Town than expensive, 5-star opulence. Experience authentic Cape Town by considering the following unusual accommodation options in and around the Mother City.
- Camp glamorously!
Love the outdoors, but not so keen on roll-up bedding? Glamp, don’t camp.Yes, glamping is a real thing! Why would you want to be cooped up in a swanky hotel when you can rough it in luxury? Enjoying the beautiful outdoors and gazing up at Cape Town’s unique view of the glittering sky doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on comfort. There are various luxury camping establishments in Cape Town including AfriCamps Boutique Camping and Bush Camp KHWA TTU.
- Bask in trailer park luxury!
Okay, this one is a luxury hotel in Cape Town central, but it’s a luxury hotel with a difference. The Grand Daddy Hotel features a rooftop luxury trailer park where guests can stay in their very own vintage airstream trailer. There is only a handful of trailers on the roof and trailer park residents have access to their very own buzzing rooftop bar and views that will amaze!
- Get cosy with the locals!
It’s not just cheap flights to Cape Town that you can save with. By opting to enjoy some local hospitality, you can save even more. Many people in Cape Town have chosen to open their homes to travellers. Instead of booking a hotel or guest house, you can book a room in a local Capetonians home and benefit from their local knowledge and advice too. Many options can be found by using Airbnb.
- Enjoy nature, history and the outdoors – luxuriously!
Why sleep in a regular hotel room when you can spend the night under the stars or in a cave previously inhabited by bushmen of years gone by? Kagga Kamma offers out-the-box accommodation in Cape Town for nature lovers who enjoy a unique twist. In addition to cave rooms and luxury open-air beds, travellers can also see 6 000-year-old cave paintings, guided safaris and spa treatments.
- Float away on your holiday!
Spending a few nights on board a house boat is one of the most unique ways to enjoy the coast of Cape Town. A great option for a floating holiday is Langebaan Houseboats. Here you can sleep 6 guests on the Larus houseboat or you can invite a crowd and hire either the upper or lower level of the Nirvana houseboat. Everything you need for your stay in Cape Town can be found on board both of the boats.
