Boutique retreat opens in Cape Town

Blue Tangerine luxury guest house, has opened in Noordhoek, a 30 minute drive from Cape Town, to provide superior boutique accommodation to visitors wishing to experience a unique countryside beach setting. 

With the emphasis on space and comfort, the impressive thatched property set amongst indigenous gardens with uninterrupted panoramic views over the bay, boasts 6 luxurious suites, 4 located within the main house, a further self contained cottage within the manicured gardens and a pool cottage, both offering self catering facilities. Each spacious designer suite or cottage offers twin or double beds, bespoke linen, en-suite bathrooms - baths, showers, heated towel rails, tea/coffee making facilities, mini safes, satellite linked flat screen television and wi-fi internet access - to rival the finest hotels.

Yet another rare feature, not often found at this level in the hospitality industry, is one particular suite within the main house that is specifically designed for a guest that may be physically impaired and has been created to take full advantage of all the facilities of the house yet has direct private access.

The thrill of driving on the world famous Chapman’s Peak drive is literally minutes from Blue Tangerine and Noordhoek itself is fast becoming an exciting destination. Popular with horse riders, surfers, cyclists, golfers, birdwatchers, or those just wanting a slightly slower pace, there are a growing number of activities in the area.  Within easy reach are all the Cape’s major attractions, renowned vineyards and popular restaurants.

The hosts of Blue Tangerine have a strong hospitality background; this is evident in the level of service provided and keen attention to detail. Breakfast and dinner menus have been designed to offer the very best of locally sourced fresh produce and special dietary requirements are taken into consideration upon booking. The presentation is elegantly completed with Wedgwood and crystal.


With the business traveller in mind, a full office facility provides wi-fi internet access, telephone, fax, scanner and photocopying facilities. A menu of massage, facials and other body therapy treatments can be arranged. Small pets are also welcome on the property, with prior arrangement.

To add yet another unique service, a 2006 model, ‘mini-cooper s convertible’ can be hired with insurance included. Blue Tangerine does not charge a single supplement rate.

Blue Tangerine is not a destination but rather a boutique retreat from the hustle of the Mother City - a place to unwind, relax, meditate and pamper oneself.
