Camissa House is a celebration of the Cape. In this new boutique hotel, we celebrate the heritage of the Cape, its meandering history that connects the mountain and the sea, the past to the future and humanity to the earth. Fall in love with Camissa House, the sister hotel of the award-winning, MannaBay. Inspired by the mountain-side splendour on its doorstep, this hotel is everything you have come to expect from her elegant sibling and so much more.

About Camissa House

Framed by the iconic Table Mountain and celebrating uninterrupted views of the city of Cape Town below, a more spectacular location for a luxury hotel is hard to find. Camissa House is an eclectic mix of intimate luxury and inspired design that elevates the hotel to an experiential masterpiece.

Sister to the award-winning MannaBay Hotel, Camissa House is destined to take the world by storm. Camissa—a name given to this area of Cape Town by its first inhabitants, the Khoi people—means “Place of Sweet Water.” It is this life-giving stream, flowing directly past our hotel, which prompted the Dutch to settle here, giving birth to the city of Cape Town we know today.

Stepping out of the hotel, it is not hard to see where Camissa House’s design inspiration has been sourced. Table Mountain is on our doorstep and is the canvas for the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the world’s great centres of terrestrial biodiversity.

Camissa House is a celebration of Africa’s Cape: its heritage, its history connecting mountain and sea, past to future and humanity to the earth.

Camissa House Accommodation

This is more than just a boutique hotel, it is a serene, mountainside hideaway found in Cape Town’s most enviable location. All of the eight rooms flaunt magnificent views of the city’s most iconic sights, perfectly complementing the tranquillity inherent of the design, the ancient history that sparked its inception and the timeless source of modern life that continues to stem from its spectacular surrounds.

Each room has access to all of the establishment’s many amenities, such as high-speed WiFi, a concierge service, afternoon high tea and the 24-hour butler. The rooms are tastefully decorated in muted, tranquil colours, with huge windows overlooking the nearby mountain, city and forest. Wall murals depict some of the incredible Cape Floral Kingdom, with images of sugarbirds and proteas.
