We have it all

The Last Word is the most intimate experience you will find. Underpinning the pleasures in our sanctuaries are three very important values we hold dearly which are kindness, character and generosity. The smiles on the faces of our family members and their attention to guests’ well-being shows the kindness we have become known for. The interiors reflect a distinctive character of understated elegance while the positioning of each hotel offers different and unique surrounds. The generosity is abundant everything we do particularly in the exceptionally large rooms, the wholesome breakfasts, complimentary wireless internet, beverages and in-room mini-bars.

Boulders beach Penguins
Boulders beach Penguins

Interact with African Penguins

The beautiful Boulders Beach is one of Cape Town’s most visited beaches and the only place in the world where you get close to African Penguins. In 1982 a couple of these little crowd-pleasers settled on the soft white sand between the large granite boulders that protect the beach from wind and large, stormy waves, and currently the population is estimated between 2,000 and 3,000 birds.

Cape Point Vineyards
Cape Point Vineyards

A world class winery by the sea

A unique farm in Noordhoek where vines are lazily nestled between mountains and ocean. Cool breezes from the sea make for a slow growing season, with a late harvest that results in a truly unique Sauvignon Blanc that is recognised across the globe for it’s rich minerality, structure and tone. Picnics on the lawn and evening wine tastings are both a great way to experience this stunning location.

One of only a few left

The winding road that slithers along the Atlantic coastline leading to Kommetjie has been described as a snake like drive. This curving coastal carriageway leads to Slangkop (Snake head) Lighthouse which has been burning brightly since 1914, becoming fully automated in 1979. The tower's light shimmers 33 nautical miles out to sea from its 33 M circular construction.

Last Word Management

Hi, I'm Fanie

I've been at Last Word Long Beach for over ten years now and worked in many different positions understanding all the different characteristics that make this 5 star beach house a place guests want to return to every time they are in Cape Town.

It's because of these guests and our team that we have been awarded 7th best hotel in Africa by Conde Nast Readers awards.

Come join us at the beach and we'll make sure you have the most relaxing getaway this city has to offer.

Let me take you by the hand,

Last word staff

We're ready for you

Our mission simply: To make people happy. In lockdown we found a new purpose; To fill serene sanctuaries with kindness and lovely people. This is cosy living rather than hurried existence, a slowed down experience that emphasises personal happiness. And right in the middle of this purpose we forged our our singular core value - kindness – the very essence of heart candy and the seat of inner happiness.  However, compassion is hard to come by in the real world. It’s often confined to close family or great friendship, rarely dished out in bucket loads by hotels. It is a rather elusive quality.

We realised that if we employed the right people (and we do), who showed amplified levels of kindness, with commensurate trust and confidence, the image of our brand would become hauntingly elusive.

We could become known as lovely people who look after lovely people and because lovely people attract one another this could form part of a self-sustaining alchemy, autocatalytic in that the combination of sanctuary, kindness and lovely people propels itself.
