The new kid of design superstars on the block. The Onyx is not only a highly sought-after residential complex – so you mix and match with real locals – but also Cape Town’s newest hip hotel. An old bank building turned modern complex, the Onyx features sleek black and white interiors with a sophisticated splash of colour and metallic design pieces here and there. It is centrally located with an urban flair and close to all of Cape Town’s must-see attractions, whether it’s the iconic Table Mountain, the white sandy beaches or the historic wine farms.
Since the hotel markets itself as self-catering, most guests choose to dine out or enjoy meals in their apartment. If you just feel like a cup of coffee or a sandwich, the ground-floor restaurant MRKT won’t disappoint. Finish the day off with a swim in the pool and stunning city views.
