The Last Word Long Beach has long been a favourite of Africa Travel, and it is easy to see why. Chris Wain heads off-the-beaten-tourist-track down to the Cape Peninsula to visit a stylish destination in South Africa.
Although famed for its beaches, Cape Town offers very few properties which are actually located right by the sea - The Last Word Beach is one such rare example, situated as it is on the beach in the quaint fishing village of Kommetjie. Reached via the fabulous & world-famous Chapmans Peak Drive, approximately 30 minutes drive from the city, there are just six rooms, all sea-facing and with private patios, and the large bathrooms for which the Last Word properties are renowned. Those rooms upstairs have the best views, but those staying downstairs are nearer to the pool and to the gate which leads out to the deserted beach.
Guests staying here benefit not just from a wonderful setting, (with whale-watching possible in season from the lounge), and great added extras, (complimentary mini-bars, evening canapés, fruit platters, turn-down deserts), but from the uniquely personalised service of Jenny, Leo and the rest of the team. They can arrange breakfast on your private patio, make local lunch reservations on your behalf, whip up a spicy curry for dinner, or just leave you to enjoy the space and privacy of your suite.
The Long Beach is a worthy member of the Last Word Portfolio, which includes The Constantia in leafy Cape Town & The Franschhoek in the wine region. Combine a visit to include all three and discover the true definition of a personalised boutique hotel. A guaranteed guest pleaser.
