Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel and Spa

Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel and Spa is situated in the heart of Cape Town’s trendy suburb Tamboerskloof, has recently reopened its doors after an extensive renovation and expansion that took 6 months to complete. The hotel now has 55 rooms.

Located at the foot of Table Mountain, Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel blends away in heritage and luxury with a touch of modern influence. Cloud 9 is surrounded by cocktail bars, eateries and entertainment.

The ambitious renovation involved, among other things the addition of 8 additional guest rooms with balconies, also adding balconies to several of the existing rooms. There is also a heated pool and expanded sun deck for use of guests.

Facilities at the Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel & Spa

The new rooftop restaurant entitled Mountain Club, is a double level restaurant with an upper deck which boasts a plunge pool for visitors and a bar with maximum ventilation offering spectacular 360-degree view of the city and Table Mountain.

This is a venue ideal for cocktail functions, corporate events, social gatherings and simply just relaxing at the end of a long working day. The plunge pool, perfect for a hot, summer afternoon is open to all outside guests with a minimum spend of only R200 per person.

Other developments include the recently opened Deluxe Spa and Hair, offering head to toe treatments by highly qualified therapists and hair stylists using the best and finest hair and skin brands sourced globally and locally including Moroccanoil, Redken, GHD, Dr Grandel, Nimue and Skin Affair among others.

Etienne Hanekom of Etienne Hanekom Designs, who is the designer for the renovations for the spa, reception area and bar and restaurant at Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel, explains that the inspiration for the bespoke look and feel was Cape Town and its surrounding nature.

He says “for the reception area, we wanted to create a more local look & feel with vibrant colours from Bo-Kaap and illustrated scenes of the Atlantic seaboard by local artist Lucie de Moyencourt”. Hanekom describes the décor as “slightly eclectic with the use of colour accents from pinks & greens. We tried to soften the spaces with plants that can breathe fresh air into the spaces.”

The hotel offers a carefully curated, artistic experience that showcases distinctive art throughout the foyer and 55 guest rooms. The main attraction of this luxe hotel is that it offers visitors a quintessentially South African experience by infusing art, history and culture.

Gerd Weideman, of Gerd Weideman Architects, is the lead architect, whose footprint includes residential renovations in the Cape Town city bowl, developments along the Atlantic seaboard and hospitality projects in Europe.

The Cloud9 hotel connects five beautiful heritage properties via a central reception and secluded courtyard. Facilities include a spa with three treatment rooms, an elevator, 24-hour reception, security and guest parking. Guests can relax on the sun deck and enjoy a splash in the plunge pools – while enjoying a cocktail on a warm summer’s day.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
