The Hotel

Experience a true Yom Tov atmosphere at Cape Town’s most beautiful iconic hotel that is ideally located in the Eruv and within easy walking distance of 5 Shuls and close proximity to Avron’s Place – Cape Town’s Kosher Restaurant.

The highest level of Kashrut will be maintained under strict, expert Rabbinical supervision through the Cape Beth Din.

Exquisitely designed for maximum light and a sense of space and tranquility, the hotel’s rooms and apartments combine contemporary sophistication and comfort with spaciousness and each and every guest room is beautifully appointed with a semi self-catering kitchenette that can be stocked upon request with Glatt Kosher products.

The President Hotel has all the luxury facilities (infinity pool, spa, fitness centre, hair and nail salon, curio shop and travel desk) and guest services you would expect in any world-class hotel and is the perfect destination for your Pesach this year.

Local attractions include Table Mountain Cableway | Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden | Boulders Beach Penguin Colony | Cape Point | World of Birds | Drakenstein Lion Sanctuary | Crocodile Farm | Seal Island | Boat Cruises | V&A Waterfront | Kosher Tours can be arranged.

The Synagogue (Shul)

We maintain a fully stocked in-house synagogue (Shul) on our premises where services are held three times a day throughout Pesach. Stimulating and dynamic guest speakers and guest Rabbis give daily lectures and work shops.

All the delicious Pesach meals are provided by Avron’s Catering in Sea Point, serving Glatt Kosher, Cholov Yisroel and Bishul Yisroel
