#8 of 63 in Camps Bay
Sea Five, ideally situated in Camps Bay, adds its unique style to Cape Town’s upmarket tourist offering. Capitalising on an outstanding location, just 300 metres from South Africa’s most glamorous beach, The Sea Five offers seven exclusive ensuite rooms with clear, sweeping mountain and sea views.Guests can look forward to the rare treat of sleeping between the sheets of 100% pure Italian linen and waking up to the scent of fresh breads and croissants. There’s the harmony of a garden redolent with mandarin, lemon, lavender and rosemary or the sociability of a large blue pool and gorgeous bar.

Our stay last month was amazing! From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty, Rooms, beds very comfortable with amazing view from our oceanside suites. Kimbu was very helpful, making us feel at home. The breakfast every morning was fresh and delicious. My husband and the couple we traveled with so enjoyed walking into town to eat dinner, sightsee and explore. Excellent location off the main strip but very walkable to town. Also, the staff was very Covid aware, masks on social distancing, cleaning always. If we ever return we will definitely stay at Sea Five.

We so look forward to our visits to Sea Five, the team led by Marco & Rose are just wonderful who always go out of their way to make your stay special. We enjoyed the comfort of the penthouse on this trip, its spacious, comfortable with panoramic views & a delight to stay in as long as the wind is not blowing down the mountain. Breakfast every morning was delicious with probably the best scrambled eggs I have ever tasted. Sea five is the perfect base to stay in when visiting Camps bay or Capetown. Until next time.....

We have just returned from 6 nights at Sea Five & cannot recommend it highly enough. The location was perfect, east distance to Cape Town waterfront & other attractions. Walking distance from Camps Bay seafront, (about 3 minutes) where there are numerous fantastic bars & restaurants. The hotel itself was superb, comfortable, clean, nice pool, bar & lounge plus other outside space. The breakfasts were great too ! The staff were friendly, helpful, polite & nothing was too much trouble. We really wished we were staying longer. Huge congratulations to the manager Marco on running such a fabulous hotel.

My husband, daughter and I spent five nights in the Penthouse and had the greatest time! The location could not be better because the hotel is up the hill a couple of blocks so the view is fantastic! And, we were close enough to the beach, restaurants, shopping to walk, but high enough to have an incredible ocean view and sunset. Down by the beach is “lively” but also pretty noisy, so I felt we had the best of both worlds. The hotel is charming, the breakfast was wonderful....but the people were outstanding! They could not have been more accommodating, caring, efficient and KIND! We hired a guide through the hotel: Admire. Well, we wanted to just put him in our bag and bring him home with us. Combined, they were instrumental in making our trip to Capetown one to remember. Thanks Sea Five, we miss you.

We loved our stay at Sea Five. We had a garden room which was very comfortable and spacious - the bed was huge and probably the best we have slept in for a long time! Breakfasts were excellent with lots of choices, and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Sea Five is only five minutes walk from the seafront and all the restaurants. We can definitely recommend it.
