Unmissable sights, from imposing mountains to glimmering waters.
Each hotel in The Red Carnation Hotel Collection offers rooms with a spectacular view. The rugged silhouette of Table Mountain and Lough Corrib’s glimmering waters set the scene at some of our more remote locations, while our city hotels present coveted glimpses of prestigious landmarks. Below, we discuss each of our destinations and the perfect panorama.
Blanketed by broad, open plains which fold into imposing mountains and dip down into glittering oceans, South Africa’s beauty knows no limits. For the most spectacular sea views, stay at The Oyster Box on Umhlanga’s beachfront. The hotel is flanked by an azure swimming pool and tropical gardens, and overlooks the dazzling Indian Ocean.
For a full immersion in the country’s untamed wilds, Bushmans Kloof is a picturesque oasis replete with ancient rock formations and slow-gliding rivers. Located in the foothills of the Cederberg Mountains, the reserve is the closest you can get to raw nature.
More transcending landscapes await discovery in Cape Town, where The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa reclines within gazing distance of the Twelve Apostles and Table Mountain. The hotel’s sophisticated Leopard Bar serves the best martini in town for a sundowner overlooking the sea.
For a sophisticated menu served with spectacular views, request a table at Hotel D’Angleterre’s Windows Restaurant. Take in Lake Geneva, the Jet d’Eau and Mont Blanc through floor-to-ceiling-windows, while tucking into favourites such as creamy risotto and butter-soft steak. Raise a glass of carefully paired Swiss wine and toast to the most enchanting vistas in the city.
