I spent my first child- free long weekend away, hitting Cape Town and the surrounding winelands on a culinary adventure and I would have been far more homesick were it not for the magnificent 5 star Crystal Towers hotel & Spa, where I was made to feel like family and not a guest.
What I loved most about this swish hotel were the unexpected and surprising David Kramer and Kingsley Holgate rooms. They were almost left undiscovered as I had to walk past a neon floor-to –double volume –wall bar filled with rows upon rows of Moet ( I swear it was like a shrine built for me).
The Holgate room was occupied and so I spent my final evening unwinding with a hot chocolate in front of a gorgeous crackling fire, getting lost in a journey of David Kramer’s life through photographs, a live DVD, memos, music and even a replica of his famous guitar.
The delight continued as I discovered our architect friend designed the interior of the New York loft style family restaurant or smokehouse KNIFE and my gorgeous Godchild’s face and his sister are splashed on the distinct and unusual monotone wallpaper!
Fabulous and friendly staff, delicious hospitality, faultless food and a David Kramer room, (I mean COME ON!)
