Staying in surf camps can sometimes be a huzzle and buzzle so when I travelled to Cape Town in December 2017 I aimed for a retreat stay, a haven of tranquility to rejuvinate and have a luxury surf holiday. The Platinum Boutique retreat was the perfect choise. This airy mountaintop villa with minimalistic decor brighten by stylish exotic pieces brought from all over the world and where luxyry is in the details and comfort, is hidden in Little Lion's Head Mountain surrounded by the most amazing view of lush mountains and the ocean. You wake up in the chirping of exotic birds to see the sunrise in your own private terrace where you enjoy an english breakfast cooked to perfection. The Platinum crew - Andreas, Ute and Jakob are there to really welcome you as a part of their family and give handy tips about places to see and amazing restaurants nearby. In the evening you can walk just a little bit up the hill to enjoy a glass of champagne while gazing the breathtaking sunset. The wi-fi is super fast and though a car is recommended, I got by with Uber and well organized MyCitiBuss service. Located in the center of the Mother City, going for a surf session in Noordhoek beach or Muizenberg beach was easy and buying a wetsuit and a surfboard is affordable! For non-surfers or off-days you have 150 vineyards to choose, huge shopping district, cute restaurants, hipster-approved cafes and lovely oceanfront suburbs just a stone's throw away. In Hout Bay you can visit the harbour's market every friday and great fish restaurants and shops. I fell in love with Cape Town and give a five-star to The Platinum Boutique Retreat where you want to return!


Stylish luxury guest house which is only a few minutes from Llandudno. Great surfing there. Hout Bay Harbour is cool for SUP, if you prefer that.

Lots of nice restaurants are within a short drive.

The staff at The Platinum is very friendly. The rooms are clean and very modern. I enjoyed the breakfast and recommend their scrambled eggs. Yummy!
