Best Luxury Apartments for Business Travel

While the Mother City has certainly gained the world’s attention as a holiday destination, those stylish luxury apartments in Cape Town are in just as much demand from the business travel sector too each year.

The Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) alone plays host to a large number of conferences, expos, trade shows and other industry events. On top of this world-class venue, there are also headquarters at national and international level for a great variety of companies. Media houses, creative agencies, tourism, marketing, development sectors and pretty much any other type of sector under the sun are all represented in the city.

Of course, what makes apartments in Cape Town such a popular choice for business accommodation is their ‘lock up and go’ convenience, central locations, up-to-date facilities and smaller, easier to manage sizes. For those travelling to the city for a conference or meeting, these qualities are ideal to ensure a fuss-free stay.

Choosing Cape Town Luxury Apartments for Business Trips

So how does a smart business traveller go about finding just the right Cape Town luxury apartments for an upcoming trip? Here are some things to keep in mind when starting the hunt for just the right place to stay…

  • Head for the CBD – if you are attending business in the City Centre, you have a good range of options when it comes to apartments. The CBD and its mix of residential and urban streets are great for centrality, while cabs are on just about every corner to get you where you need to go quickly.
  • Book as early as possible – as soon as you have your plans in place, find and book somewhere to stay right away. Travel during peak times – especially towards the end of year summer madness – can be trickier in terms of availability, so make sure that you act quickly to snap up that ideally positioned apartment you fancy.

Check facilities before you book – last but not least, it’s also good to check things like internet options, WiFi, security and whether or not catered services are offered before you sign on any dotted lines. This will ensure that you choose Cape Town apartments that suit your needs, armed with all the info you need to make that booking.

Beachfront Villas in Winter – Another Side to Cape Town’s Beauty

Beachfront villas in Cape Town are always in demand, but for most visitors, these establishments seem to be designed for the hot summer months. After all, isn’t summer when beaches are supposed to be at their best?

Actually, when it comes to its world famous beaches and the sheer variety of Cape Town beachfront villas, you might just be surprised by how much the cooler season has to offer in the way of fun, scenery and charm…

Why Consider Cape Town Beachfront Villas in Winter?

For the northern hemisphere, winter is a time of gloom and doom. Snow, rain, sleet, frost and months upon months of bleak days are all par for the course. The southern hemisphere however experiences a different type of winter. These winters fall in the middle of the year, and in the case of Cape Town, many have even compared this season to northern hemisphere summers!

So what does this mean for those who might be considering a winter break in this part of the world? Here are a few reasons that hiring a beachfront villa in Cape Town during winter may offer a whole new side to the city’s charms.

  1. Plenty of warm days – even at the height of winter, you can still enjoy a marvellously warm day here and there. It is not unusual to have hot days after a week of cooler days, and even the coldest days seldom have temps below 20 degrees Celsius or so.
  2. Incredible scenery – if you have ever witnessed a winter sunset over the ocean, you might have some idea of what to expect from nature during this time of year. The countryside plays along very nicely too in other landscapes, with fresh green fields, towering trees and plenty of other Instagram-worthy sights to take in as well.
  3. Lots to do – winter is packed with things to see and do, from wine tasting to outdoor adventures, festivals, live music shows, comedy nights, the legendary Cape Town Winter Restaurant Specials, pub quizzes at Long Street bars and plenty more besides. Rates are discounted too, making it an affordable time to travel.

As the final cherry on top of the proverbial cake, villas are also fully equipped with luxurious touches to keep you warm and toasty, from fireplaces to luscious blankets, spa bathrooms and even heated pools, depending on where you plan to stay.
