Sophistication is guaranteed at
Cape Town’s Southern Sun The Cullinan


This grand hotel, located in the midst of the Cape Town bustle, offers an oasis of old-school style. Promising a luxurious stay, be it for business or pleasure, Southern Sun The Cullinan oozes colonial charm with that Mother City sparkle.


Each of the 394 stately en-suite bedrooms come furnished with all the amenities required for a comfortable visit, including free WiFi. Southern Sun The Cullinan’s classical styling is carried into the bedrooms with opulent furnishings in white, gold and brown with splashes of deep purple, and incredible views of Cape Town’s CBD, harbour and Table Mountain.


The new Stella Cafe & Bar offers delicious al fresco dining on the pool deck. This Parisian-inspired venue is the perfect spot for a glass of wine and a meal, or join one of the Friday #StellaSessions from September and enjoy a relaxing drink while listening to the live music. If you’re in the mood for a blend of international flavours, indulge in the Peach Tree restaurant’s sumptuous buffet.


Feel your cares float away with a blissful treatment at Mangwanani Boutique Spa. This world-class pampering service uses only natural products, designed to help you relax completely. You can choose whether to experience one of these gently restorative sessions at the spa, the pool or even in the privacy of your own room.


Beyond leisure, the hotel provides a number of options for conferencing and business events, offering tailor-made settings, whatever the occasion. There are nine flexible venues, which can cater for smaller groups of 12 in a private meeting room, or host up to 155 guests in a reception setting.
