Our piece of paradise is home to some amazing places. It is these attractions that make Noordhoek a world class destination for life or holiday. It is made even more so by the folk who have established businesses here and the passion that they have shown for and put into these businesses.
We simply love what everyone does in Noordhoek and only feel it correct that we share our “Best of Noordhoek” with you. After all we think we are quite good at spotting something special and unique that’s why we built this great hotel.
It would be silly not to first highlight our neighbours, the people and businesses of the Noordhoek Farm Village. The Village vision was brilliant; it was built in 1995 and has blossomed ever since. In the last decade it has seen some great changes and the best of Cape Town certainly decided to make Noordhoek home. Brands and businesses have grown around us, as have family and friends. Cafe Roux has become a place of choice for Cape Town gatherings with their evening gigs and unplugged Sunday sessions. The Toad in the Village is almost written into Cape Town folk lore and dining or socialising there any time is a complete experience, and wait for a good sport day on the big screen, in the words of The Toad himself “we think you’ll like it!”. Then there is Franck Dangereux’s Foodbarn Restaurant that continues to get accolade after accolade for the amazing fine dining experience he and his team deliver day in day out. Of course the Tapas Bar at The Deli and Tapas delivers the same experience. And if you have not heard of Village Sushi you are missing a trick! Restaurants aside there are some great great little boutique shops, Tom’s African Experience and Caroline’s Beauty Spa are perfect examples and did we miss Guy at The Village Roast churning out Cape Town's finest coffee. Roasted on site daily, a must have...
Now you must not get too lazy because beyond the confounds of this safe village meeting place lie a couple of other Cape Town gems. Noordhoek beach does not have a boss, but if you don’t take your shoes off and feel the sand and fresh Atlantic water between your toes you have missed out. The Red Herring is a legend as too is The Monkey Valley Resort. A stroll through Cape Point Vineyards and a picnic on their lawn is also as relaxing as it gets.
Then further a field you must also explore! Kalk Bay is magnificent and a drive through Simons Town to Cape Point and back through Kommetjie along the “Slangkop Pass” is well worth the time spent. And when you ready head for Chapman’s Peak and the rest of Cape Town awaits you, but don’t rush it, it is so much better here!
