Welgelegen – An urban sanctuary in the heart of Cape Town
A delightfully unpretentious yet sophisticated environment, Welgelegen offers warmth, style and intimacy with its thirteen individually styled en-suite bedrooms. In each and every room, no comfort is spared, from Wi-Fi and aircon to home-made cookies and hot water bottles, as well as the personal touches such as evening chocolates on your pillow, daily fresh fruit, and Welgelegen’s own line of “green” toiletries that not only nourish your body but your senses, too.
This is a boutique hotel that thrives at taking the stress and strains out of one’s holiday.
A spacious high-ceilinged sitting room and a cozy yet rich library, adjoin a grand breakfast room, all of which are filled with contemporary furnishings and eclectic African art. The breakfast room leads to a cobbled court-yard frequented by our resident Hadedahs attempting a dip into the refreshing plunge pool. Perfect for one to cool off in, after absorbing the crisp, South African sun.
The in-house therapy room offers treatments from pedicures and manicures to deep tissue massages and flight recovery packages. Definitely something to consider should you wish to be pampered that much further.
Welgelegen is a professionally run, centrally located urban sanctuary that offers so much more than just a place to stay. Each member of staff will go above and beyond their call of duty to ensure your experience of Cape Town is a memory to write about. You will be sent on excursions that are off the beaten track, exploring the essence of what Cape Town’s music, art, food, culture and nature has to offer.
As the essential oils burn and the hearty African music resonate down the corridors of the old Victorian build, you cannot help but feel at home, away from your own. Welgelegen is truly a peaceful haven in the heart of town.
