There’s no end to the charm here, whether experiencing the Camelot Universal Signature Hot Stone Massage calling up the best of Kahuna, Balinese and Indian head massage to a ruby martini served in the Union Bar, to the golden statue dedicated to the legend of Oscar the Cape Fur Seal and his unusual friendship with a lonely fisherman.
Enjoy craft beer produced by Darling Brewery excellent for the heat of South African days and nights, the perfect pairing with fresh shellfish and fish. After your latest adventure at the end of the world, enjoy the old-world sophistication of high tea in the Lounge where the centuries-old tradition finds you enjoying indigenous flavours amidst one of the world’s most dramatic backdrops. suninternational.com/table-bay ◼
