Gracing the mountainside above a tranquil Lake District on the warmer False Bay coastline, Colona Castle, a magical Villa of great quality graded 5-Star, is a splendid Mediterranean retreat from which to explore fascinating Cape Town, its Peninsula and Winelands, offering character, exclusivity and infinite charm.

A renaissance of a landmark, exquisitely transformed with contemporary comforts, Colona Castle is a Luxurious Boutique Hotel in Cape Town, which combines luxury and intuitive service with breath-taking panoramic vistas of Table Mountain, Cape Town’ s southern suburbs, Sandvlei Lake, False Bay, the South Atlantic Ocean and the Winelands rugged mountains.
