This 5-star hotel has me in my feels. I can’t wait to hop in a car and make my rounds again.
I chatted to Paul Duverge, group general manager of Cape Summer Villas, about this beautiful and luxe establishment.
Can you tell us a bit more about the journey in founding your establishment?
Sky Villa Boutique Hotel is a passion project of the highest order, and it delivers on opulence, striking design and warm hospitality. It offfers five-star facilities that ensure a unique experience for all those we have the pleasure of hosting.The 5-star hotel opened in December 2017 and after a recent interior revamp by local interior designer Raine Solomon, Sky Villa offers a total of 14 luxury rooms, including one presidential and one honeymoon Suite, and sea and mountain-facing deluxe suites. Cape Summer Villas Boutique Collection is a boutique collection of hotels and villas, located in Cape Town, the Cape Winelands, Stellenbosch, the Garden Route and Plettenberg Bay, with a variety of accommodation options.
What distinguishes Sky Villa Boutique Hotel from others of its kind?
Sky Villa Boutique Hotel is a world-leading luxury destination, perched on a hilltop overlooking the entire Plettenberg Bay with breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean, Tsitsikamma Mountains, Keurbooms River, and the lagoon. Offering the ultimate escape, a stay in one of our Sky Villa suites is an unforgettable experience.
What’s the one thing you wish people walk away with after visiting your establishment(s)?
That they have found a ‘home’; a sanctuary at this magical ocean-side escape, and that they are fully relaxed and are ready to face the world with confidence.
We’re living in unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc, and the tourism and hospitality industries, have been hit hard. How do you see us recovering from this?
That we will recover I do not doubt it. It may take a while, but we will!
What, in your opinion, can visitors look forward to once things return to “normal”?
At Sky Villa it’ll be business as usual – our usual warm hospitality and 5-star excellence await our guests after lockdown.
Any advice for business owners during this time?
