Although not in downtown Cape Town, the Last Word Constantia is located 20 minutes away in a quiet residential area. Set amongst gorgeous gardens this elegant property allows you to “live like a local” in luxuriously appointed spacious rooms and suites.  Some of these bespoke rooms feature private pools.  Personalised service and attention to detail are provided to all guests and you are so well looked after you feel regretful when having to leave!


Cape Town has many inviting beaches and a wonderful coastline with winding roads that hug the coast and extend as far as Cape Hope.  This area is a popular day trip but if you prefer to see this part of South Africa at leisure the Last Word Long Beach is the ideal place to stay.  Originally a private home, this beach front accommodation has rooms with wonderful sea views – the beach is only steps away so if you fancy an early morning walk along their 5 mile beach or even a horse ride along the ocean it is easily achieved from the Last Word Long Beach.  The area is very much a sleepy fishing village so a car is recommended however transfers can be arranged if required.  This Last Word property has only 6 rooms decorated in shades of white so is ideal for a family group stay, a private onsite intimate wedding or a few couples away together.


If you are looking to visit Stellenbosch and some of the wine regions, the Last Word Franschhoek is built in a historic residence and features only 10 rooms. It is located in the heart of the very beautiful Franschhoek village famous in South Africa for gourmet food and great wines.  This Last Word property is only few minutes’ walk from the many excellent restaurants, boutiques, shops and galleries.  Like all sister hotels, it has an inviting pool, outstanding obligating staff and even under floor heating if you happen to be in this region in winter.  Staff are able to assist with touring information, recommendations for dining and wine tasting.  The Cape Wine Region is a stunning location to visit out from Cape Town and more deserving of a longer stay (rather than a day trip); the perfect blend of Dutch Cape architecture and beautiful landscapes to be enjoyed by everyone (not just wine lovers).
For further details on any of these please speak to Kymberly in our office – she is lucky to have stayed in all 3!
