Pri­vate Par­adise at the V&A

Premier Magazine (South AFrica) - - Contents - Text: Kayla Cloete Images © New­mark Ho­tels

The V&A Water­front is one of the hottest at­trac­tions in Cape Town. And, with the new ad­di­tion to the New­mark Water­front fam­ily, The Manor House, the Water­front has be­come all the more de­sire­able.

From trendy pubs and fine-din­ing restau­rants, to de­signer bou­tiques and large-scale craft mar­kets, har­bour cruises and tourist at­trac­tions such as the Cape Town Eye and Robben Is­land Musuem, the Vic­to­ria & Al­fred Water­front is alive with ac­tiv­ity from dusk to dawn. It is no won­der peo­ple choose to book their ac­com­mo­da­tion nearby – with so much to do and see, why would you ever want to leave?

Al­ready home to the iconic Dock House Bou­tique Ho­tel and Vic­to­ria & Al­fred Ho­tel, New­mark Ho­tels, Re­serves & Lodges has added one more prop­erty to the bustling V&A Water­front.

The Manor House, com­pleted in May 2017, is a four-room pri­vate manor house lav­ished in lux­ury. Tucked away in the ex­clu­sive Newmarket just min­utes away from the for­ever-vi­brant Water­front, The Manor House pro­vides a uniquely peace­ful and quiet es­cape within the heart of all the ac­tiv­ity.

Un­in­ter­rupted views of Ta­ble Moun­tain await guests from within each of their up­mar­ket suites. Guests can take in the spec­tac­u­lar views from their very own pri­vate pa­tio or Juliet bal­cony. Af­ter en­joy­ing your morn­ing drink of choice (served to you in your room by your per­sonal but­ler), spend some time in the op­u­lent en suite bath­room and freshen up with the sump­tu­ous in-room ameni­ties by Molton Brown. Th­ese prod­ucts are made from some of the most pre­cious in­gre­di­ents in the world, and have been specif­i­cally cho­sen to pro­vide guests with the spe­cial treat­ment that they de­serve.

The bath­rooms are lux­u­ri­ous and spa­cious re­treats, with a glo­ri­ous free­stand­ing tub and spa­cious shower. All of the in­te­rior spa­ces were de­signed by the renowned Fran­cois du Plessis – a Cape Town-based de­signer who has worked on var­i­ous large-scale com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties both na­tion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, in­clud­ing in London, Berlin, Sydney, New York, and San Diego.

“The Manor House is el­e­gant and mod­ern with un­der­stated lux­ury and glam­our, of­fer­ing ev­ery com­fort for our guests,” ex­plains Gen­eral Man­ager for the Queen Vic­to­ria Ho­tel, Juan Wol­marans. And, ev­ery com­fort was in­deed con­sid­ered when de­sign­ing th­ese suites – from the king size bed fac­ing the wall-mounted flatscreen TV, to the el­e­gant din­ing ta­ble over­look­ing the city sky­line, and sit­u­ated within close prox­im­ity to the com­ple­men­tary mini­bar and cof­fee sta­tion. Ev­ery­thing about th­ese rooms, even down to the finest de­tails, ex­em­pli­fies per­fec­tion.

To top off the of­fer­ing, all rooms come with a per­sonal but­ler ser­vice of the high­est stan­dard. The but­lers at The Manor House have all been spe­cially trained to per­form a wide range of du­ties, from book­ing the­atre tick­ets to un­pack­ing lug­gage for the dis­cern­ing guests that book a stay in this ho­tel. Ev­ery task un­der­taken by the but­ler is han­dled in the most charm­ing man­ner.

Aside from the qual­ity of the ser­vice and the ex­cel­lence of The Manor House’s de­sign, there are some ad­di­tional perks to stay­ing at one of the Water­front prop­er­ties of New­mark: Guests are wel­come to make use of the fa­cil­i­ties of­fered in the sis­ter ho­tels. En­joy the ar­ti­sanal-style, all-day din­ing restau­rant Ginja at the Vic­to­ria & Al­fred Ho­tel or a fine-din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at Dash Restau­rant in the Queen Vic­to­ria (with sen­sa­tional pur­ple G&T’S!), the fully func­tional gym (avail­able 24 hours), a re­lax­ing spa treat­ment at the Sanc­tu­ary Sig­na­ture Spa, or get some work done with the help of the full con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties at The Fo­rum.

Man­ag­ing Director for New­mark, Neil Markovitz, con­cludes, “The Manor House com­pletes our vi­sion of cre­at­ing the New­mark re­sort-like of­fer­ing at our Water­front prop­er­ties – where guests feel like they get more value, be­cause they chose to stay with us.”
