Red Carnation Hotels are a small group of luxury boutique hotels in different locations and have won several awards in recent years. Yesterday we had a visit from Ami Neve, the UK Director of Sales from Red Carnation Hotels as she accompanied Abbey Thomas of Visions Holidays, a preferred partner of Conexo Travel. As well as having a number of their own excellent holiday brands, Visions Holidays are able to book all Red Carnation Hotels.
Ami spoke to me specifically about their three amazing properties in South Africa and took us through the videos below which really bring to life the experience of each hotel.
The 12 Apostles Hotel
The award-winning Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa has a great location on Cape Town’s most scenic route. Situated above the Atlantic Ocean, this 5-star boutique hotel is to be found amidst Table Mountain National Park, a World Heritage Site, and of course the Twelve Apostles mountain range. The hotel offers guests a shuttle service to Cape Town and V&A Waterfront. It’s fantastic position guarantees memorable Atlantic Ocean sunsets.
