About Us

The Platinum Difference

THE PLATINUM BOUTIQUE HOTEL is a Bauhaus-inspired 4-star boutique hotel, set high above magnificent Hout Bay Valley in Cape Town, South Africa. We are centrally located in the Cape Town region and therefore ideally located for day trips to the many highlights of the Western Cape.

Chic, Modern Design

German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe believed that "less is more". The design of our sophisticated, modern architecture property reflects his philosophy. We adhered to demanding German construction standards, using only the finest materials. We also believe that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. This is evident in our decor, our in-room facilities and our superior service. That's what places THE PLATINUM in a league of its own!

An Exclusive Experience 

"Less is more" also applies to the number of guests we accommodate. Our POOL SUITES and MASTER SUITE accommodate a small number of discerning guests. Our guests prefer an elegant, personalized service chain hotels do not offer. For many, that is what makes THE PLATINUM such an elegant escape from reality. 

Going the Extra Mile 

Personalized service is what differentiates a luxury guest house from a B&B or a commercial hotel. It's all about the little things. At THE PLATINUM we are at your service from the moment you arrive. To make your stay effortless, we offer a helpful concierge service. Talk to us about dinner reservations, wine tastings, day trips or anything else we can arrange to make your stay memorable.

A Holiday to Remember

At THE PLATINUM, we want to ensure that you have a great time in Cape Town! German proprietor Ute Trost and her team can help you design the holiday you deserve. Whether it's filled with adventure and activities, or simply relaxing in an elegant environment, we can make your dream holiday happen.

It all starts by choosing a boutique hotel designed to make you feel at home in elegant surroundings. We look forward to welcoming you at THE PLATINUM
