SUN INTERNATIONAL and Virgin Holidays are offering a bit of March madness by knocking off hundreds of pounds off trips to one of the world's greatest cities - Cape Town.
The South African city has it all, you can enjoy balmy days and barmy nights in a city which ticks every every box that even the most demanding tourist wants. Besides Table Mountain and countless beautiful beaches there are vineyards all over the place as well a restaurant scene that would turn any self-respecting foodie into a drooling wreck. The Table Bay Hotel, part of the Sun International collection of hotels and one of The Leading Hotels of the World, visitors can book a shopping short break getting a fourth night free in March.
Savings of up to £365 come with the ‘Four for Three’ package include four nights accommodation in a Luxury twin room, ull English Breakfast each morning and return flights with Virgin Atlantic.
Four nights at the five-star Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town with Virgin Holidays, including one free night, scheduled flights with Virgin Atlantic from London Heathrow direct to Cape Town, starts at £1,559 per person.
This price is per person based on two adults travelling and sharing a luxury room, for departures on 5 March 2012.
Ideally located to discover Cape Town’s best kept secrets, The Table Bay Hotel has an enviable position at the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Whilst strolling along the marina, visitors can watch the street artists, spot seals bobbing in the waves or stop off for great al fresco dining.
The V&A Waterfront offers a new ‘Fashion Wing’ which includes luxury brands such as Gucci, Jimmy Choo, and Paul Smith, and is the place to go for chic presents whereas Cape Town’s range of local markets offer some more traditional crafts.
A spokesman for Sun International said: "The Table Bay Hotel offers unrivalled views of the harbour, exceptional accommodation, outstanding service, and the finest wine and cuisine.
"After a day spent in the shops or simply sightseeing, guests looking for rest and relaxation can indulge in the hotel’s renowned Afternoon High Tea – and discover the mysteries of tea pairing with delicate soft pastries, or chill out with a cocktail by the rooftop pool.
"Guests staying at The Table Bay Hotel can now enjoy a beer tasting session coupled with the new Cape Malay canapé menu prior to dinner in the Atlantic gourmet restaurant and indulge in a quintessentially Capetonian experience."
