Updated on March 12, 2011

Cape Town has quickly emerged as the city of romantics, adventurers, explorers, and families as well. It boasts of various exquisitely wonderful boutique hotels where you can soak in everything it has to offer. So just where is Cape Town?

Well, it actually lays on South Africa's Southwest corner. This is where the Indian ocean and the Atlantic meet. It has an airport of its own, and anyone who visits there will never be short on excitement or entertainment.

So where does one stay in Cape town? The growth of Cape Town into one of this world's most energetic cities, is only matched by excellent quality found within its hotels. They've experienced a real boom in their boutique hotels. These have been designed to grab attention from discerning travelers. They provide you with well designed and well thought out rooms, with public areas and various levels of service, able to anticipate the needs of every guest. Along with this relatively new style hotel comes the Atlantic house. This occupies a very enviable position among the trendy resorts of Camps Bay, Kensington Palace. It holds a minimal delight of eight rooms, centered right smack in the city's heart, and Bishops Court, that supplies many spacious rooms with a pool and a tennis court that is lit up by floodlights. It offers fantastic views of all the surround landscape.

If you're wondering about how you'll get around, well, it's simple in Cape Town. You just grab a taxi, and they're very reasonable. It you'd like to go exploring on the Western Cape, then taxis are a great idea. They have buses and trains linking all major cities there in South Africa. You can plan long-haul bus trips and also rent bikes for traveling around the city.

It's a certainty that Cape Town holds something for almost anyone. It doesn't matter if your thing is shopping, water adventures, mountain treks, safari trips, or wine tasting tours, you'll easily find it within the borders of Cape Town. The climate is enviable, and when combined with the presence of the stunning Table Mountain, it is really something to behold. Cape Town is able to mix urban chic with spectacular landscapes, so they can cater to a large variety of visitors.

If you lack enough energy to walk it, you can grab a cable car and take in the view. Robben Island has a notorious reputation as the home where Nelson Mandela lived while imprisoned. It's only a half hour boat ride and has been made into a new 'living' museum. If you feel the need to over extend your credit cards, you can go shopping at the V&A waterfront. There you'll find cinemas, restaurants, and plenty of craft markets all around this working harbor.
