Currently sitting on my balcony, at 12 Apostles Hotel. Its midnight, and I'm listening to the Atlantic Ocean beat against the shore, as the summer night breeze gently blows. To my right, I can see Lion Head mountain, standing silently over the city of Cape Town.
In the face of this beautiful landscape, its hard to remember the far too recent history of apartheid in South Africa.
This is my 2nd night, of a 3 night stay at 12 Apostles. Right now, I can safely say that my experiences here have had a profound affect on me. But, more about that later, first let's talk about this hotel...
-12 Apostles brings to life the term 'living in the lap of luxury.'.
-The rooms are nothing short of spectacular. Spacious, with a balcony overlooking the ocean, and the added bonus of being able to see the city as well. The bathroom is on par with any spa in Toronto.
-The hotel itself isn't big, only 70 rooms. But, what it lacks in size, it makes up for with service. The staff here are so incredibly attentive, its unbelievable.
-For example, we spent our first evening in the Leopard Lounge, and our waiter (Lucky), must of had a great time with me, Tracy and another couple traveling through Lion World Tours as well. The next day, Lucky found us chilling by the 'not-so' hot tub, and told us he's reserved a seat for us in the lounge, and advises us to show-up whenever we're ready. Turns out the reserved seats were the best in a very busy house.
-I'm going to be sorry to leave, but, I'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of the trip has in-store for us.
On a side note... I finally had a chance to eat an ostrich burger. 'Yummy' is an understatement!
