Dine in style at The President Hotel in Bantry Bay

Words: Crush

The President Hotel in Bantry Bay, affectionately known as Cape Town’s most loved hotel – with its spacious apartments, gorgeous views and Instagram-worthy infinity pool – has given its dining outlets a fresh face and light refurbishment.

The spaces now boast contemporary furnishing, finishes and little touches to enhance the dining experience.

Inside The President Hotel

The hotel’s bar, The Senate – one of Cape Town’s best hangout spots for sports fans and drinking sundowners – has reinvented itself into a refreshing contemporary wine and tapas bar. The business hub-cum-coworking space offers comfort, high-speed WiFi, sustainably sourced Bootlegger coffee and all amenities needed to meet, eat, work and unwind.

Keeping in line with the hotel’s sustainability journey, the new features incorporate local artists, pieces and furnishings that focus on reducing their environmental impact. The simple and elegant high tables give a clean and sophisticated look, with tall seating almost floating alongside.

A show-stopping Cape Winelands backdrop from Cara Saven Wall Design, and beautifully illustrated by local artist, Michael Chandler, effortlessly completes the space that flows into the bar area.

Oak café tables create a stylish setting for comfort and conversations, while touches of uplifting mustard, in the form of upcycled couches, add a playful pop of colour to the sophisticated emerald and grey space.

Wine & Dine

The Restaurant and Terrace, The Deck Bar, The Base (for gourmet woodfired pizzas) and Botany Café (serving healthy lunch and freshly squeezed juice) are all popular amongst locals who enjoy the divine breakfast spread, delicious pizzas and daily sundowners.

The spaces now boast contemporary furnishing, finishes and little touches to enhance the dining experience. The bar, serving an extensive selection of local wines, now sports cosy pockets for socialising, meetings and relaxing. Wine flights are available, so guests can taste and appreciate the wines of the region as they follow the hotel’s Presidential Wine Journey.

All dining areas are family-friendly, dog-friendly and open to the public, as well as guests of the 350-roomed hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Ongoing events at the refurbished spaces include:

  • Daily sundowner specials
  • Complimentary wine tasting every Friday
  • Sunday Lunch Buffet
  • High Tea on the first Saturday of each month
  • Kids free pizza-making every Friday between 17h00 and 18h00
