The Ritz Hotel, Cape Town set to open its doors in March

The Ritz Hotel, Cape Town has been undergoing an extensive R120 million makeover, spearheaded by Shimmy Luxury Collection.

Benchmarked against the most exclusive collections in the world, SLC is set to shake up the hospitality landscape in South Africa.

With a unique approach to equity based, owner-management, the SLC team provides 360 insights covering all bases from legal support, financial investment and operational modelling through to design and brand building.

This historic and well positioned iconic hotel, with 212 luxurious bedrooms, will open its doors early March this year.

The new Ritz Hotel will boast a host of luxury designs and amenities to ensure guests have a uniquely tailored experience.


“We are about design driven accessible luxury in a manner which is incomparable and unconventional,” said chief executive Nicky van der Walt.

The entrance hall and guest lobby will consist of smooth white marble with gold inlays, depicting utter sophistication and refinement.

The newly reconstructed Ritz will also be opening an exclusive nightclub on the basement level, adding to the vibrant Cape Town nightlife.

The plush pool area, complete with new landscaping and an outdoor champagne bar service will flow from the open plan CASA Restaurant & Cabanas.

State-of -the-art conferencing and event facilities that can hold up to 1,000 guests are available for reservations immediately and once fully upgraded, will transform into the perfect spot to mix business and leisure.

All five conference rooms are positioned to allow for the flow of natural light and breakaway options are available on a separate level within The Plaza.

The Ritz will also boast a fitness centre and a luxury spa.
