The St James
5 STAR ST. JAMES HOTEL IN CAPE TOWN
WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA
Kalk Bay is fast becoming one of the Western Cape's most popular retreats, and is situated just outside Cape Town. Traditionally considered to be a fishing village, Kalk Bay is home to an interesting array of shops, homes and people. The St James is a 5-star seaside oasis set in these enchanting surrounds, overlooking Kalk Bay, False Bay, and the Indian Ocean beyond.
St James was always considered 'millionaire's mile', and it retains the high standards set so long ago with its old-world charm juxtaposed by modern facilities. The charming traditional colourful Victorian bathing boxes still line the beaches, and old classic-style houses are still occupied by the local residents. Local fishermen emerge from the harbour, laden with fresh fish to sell to the public. Because of the accessibility of these fresh fish, the seafood restaurants in the area are not only abundant, but well-stocked. Whether the diner is looking for a home-away-from-he menu, or a high-class experience, The St James promises to cater for your unique requirements.
The Main Road exudes a Mediterranean feel and is lined with antique shops, delis, boutiques and art galleries, all within three minutes' walk from The St James. Win-protected tidal pools and swimming beaches are directly across the road from The St James, and offer the perfect opportunity to have a refreshing morning swim.
|The promenade twists through the historic surrounds and up the scenic mountains for idyllic views of the town, environment and the whales during the season. These whales frolic in the waves, just metres off the coastline and well within site of The St James.
This guesthouse is over 100 years old and this age oozes out of every crevice of the establishment in an elegant chic. The grand staircase transports guests to their suites, each uniquely decorated in the magnificence of the Victorian era. A swimming pool is carved into mountain to create a sheltered oasis in the hot summer, and a wooden deck is the perfect platform from which to view the incredible False Bay.
