A touch of tradition with a twist of the Cape and a dash of glamour; the festive season is set to unfold in magical style at The Table Bay. From nutcrackers, sugarplum fairies and The Table Bay’s legendary Oscar to lavish Christmas banquets, carols by candlelight and Cape Town-inspired New Year celebrations, the experience of the festive season at Cape Town’s Best Address is beautifully crafted.

“The Table Bay absolutely revels with the spirit of the festive season. With due preciseness, we are planning a most magnificent celebration of the season which acknowledges old and new traditions, as well as the genuine warmth and colourful culture of the Cape. Our spectacular nutcrackers will be stationed outside to welcome our guests and as always, the hotel’s interiors will be spruced with the most dazzling festive décor. There will be no Christmas tree this year though. Instead, we have something very special in store to light the way to our front door,” says Sarah Prins, the PR Manager at The Tables Bay.
