Combine nature and luxury with a refreshing trip to Cape Town June 20, 2019 Travel 86 While South Africa’s cool climate provides the ideal relief from the GCC’s soaring temperatures this summer, Arambrook Boutique Hotel provides a stylish setting and close proximity to a range of outdoor adventures and activities. Arambrook is the perfect place for guests who want to enjoy nature, without compromising on luxury. Nestled against the slopes of Table Mountain, Arambrook Boutique Hotel is a picturesque hotel surrounded by rolling greenery, making it a sought-after location for GCC guests looking to wake up in fresh mountain air. Situated in the heart of the Constantia Valley region, the hotel is surrounded by magnificent mountains – perfect for a morning hike – and is within walking distance to the spectacular Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, known as Africa’s most beautiful garden. The fresher climate also allows for the exploration of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. Luckily for us, South Africa’s winter is prime safari season, meaning between June and October you can spend a day or two spotting game in a nearby reserve. While there’s never a bad time to visit the province’s legendary vineyards, they are especially inviting during the winter months with many high-profile wineries lighting their fire places and pairing wine tastings with cheese boards or chocolate selections. The all-suite Arambrook Boutique Hotel has eight spacious suites, making it a more intimate choice for bespoke holidays with personalised service. Ideal for couples looking for romance, families looking for space, or larger groups looking to hire out the entire house, everyone will appreciate the beautifully manicured gardens.
