Our location makes staying at The President an experience you’ll never forget.

Situated in the exclusive and wind-free suburb of Bantry Bay, the President Hotel is a peaceful haven just a step away from the buzz of Cape Town’s CBD.

With sweeping views stretching over the endless horizon of the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and nestled below the majestic Lion’s Head, Bantry Bay enjoys an average of 290 wind-free days a year. The average daily sunshine is between 7.5 and 9.5 hours, making the President Hotel’s infinity pool an attractive prospect all year round.

The climate is temperate, with some grey days in winter but with so much to see and do, the occasional rainy day is never a problem.

The President Hotel’s perfect location offers easy access to Explore, Discover and Experience all that Cape Town has to offer.

A short stroll down the road will take you to the majestic Atlantic Ocean, with Queens and Saunders’ Rock Beach leading onto the Sea Point Promenade, ideal for soaking up some warm African sunshine.

The Sea Point promenade is a beautiful path that meanders along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, past the Green Point Urban Park and Cape Town’s iconic stadium to the popular V&A Waterfront with its shops, restaurants and boat trips into the bay.

Situated on the western side of the promenade, the President Hotel is perfect for healthy living, as you will discover one of Cape Town’s favourite places to cycle, walk, run or enjoy the fresh seaside air.

The options are endless for staying fit, active and healthy whilst enjoying the beauty of Cape Town and all easily accessible from the hotel. The promenade in front of the hotel is a very scenic and safe jogging and cycling route. With mesmerising vistas of city, sea and mountains, it is the perfect place to watch the sunset or stop off for an ice-cream and simply be.

This scenic route is completely traffic free and is suitable for kids and riders of every fitness level and bicycles can be rented directly from the hotel. Let’s not forget about the world-renowned cycle route along Chapman Peak Drive, the remarkable scenery makes the route an amazing experience for cyclists.

Why not end the cycle off with a crisp swim in the beautiful ocean or try the many rock pools located a few steps away from the hotel.

If you want to explore on foot, a shorter walk will take you into lively, bustling Sea Point, or, for the more energetic, the President Hotel is the ideal starting point for a walk up Lion’s Head and its 360° view of the city and the Atlantic Seaboard.

If you would prefer to explore by bus, the hop-on, hop-off bus stops right outside the hotel and tickets can be bought at the travel desk.

Cape Town has a rich history and the city has an abundance of museums and memorials for you to explore. There is no better way to discover a city than by walking its streets, uncovering its history and mingling with the locals. Cape Town has a number of free walking tours to do exactly that.
