Waterville, Maine
Reviewed 30 January 2017

My wife and I have traveled all around the world. This may be our favorite boutique hotel. Manna Bay is located in the shadow of Table Mountain. The views from the well-appointed suites are all amazing, either of the city (which exceeds what everyone says in terms of striking beauty) or of the mountain. Walk outside your room, and you...

For a unique, elegant Capetown experience book into Manna Bay. This lovely boutique hotel is set at the foot of Table Mountain, offering extraordinary views of both nature and the city. Commensurate with the natural beauty is Manna Bay’s extraordinary service. Well trained and warmly friendly butlers attend to your every need for breakfast, high tea or an after-dinner drink...

This hotel is an 8 suite luxurious boutique hotel that feels like you've come home to your beautiful estate situated between the mountains, ocean and city. The service is impeccable. The manager Mitch assured our stay went perfectly arranging every detail. The housekeeping staff kept every room immaculately clean, crisp, and perfectly neat. The chef and waiters for the morning...

Hard to find sufficient superlatives for this place, and we have stayed at so many good places in Cape Town. The location is one of the best if you want to be near the mountain or town. Its quiet and with sweeping views of the mountain - the cable car line passes overhead not far from Manna Bay - and...

After two weeks of exploring the wonderful ness that South Africa has to offer, we arrived at Mannabay. It is clearly evident that they know how things should be done here, with attentive but not obtrusive service. Outstanding breakfasts and afternoon tea, flowing drinks and a million books to sit by the pool and read if you so wish. Anything...

Great value for money! The excellent staff and service simply just add to an overall amazing experience. Came here for high tea and even though we were not guests staying the night, we were treated as if we were back home. Would definitely recommend Mannabay. Thank you, will visit again soon!
