With breakfast and transfers to and from the airport included, excluding flights, this is a perfect, and well-deserved, break from the hustle and the bustle of the city.

Apart from relaxing in luxurious, understated extravagance – as close to the water’s edge as you can get in the quaint fishing village of Kommetjie in the Western Cape – The Last Word Long Beach offers elegant, homely surroundings; uninterrupted, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean; and a picturesque 30-minute scenic drive from Cape Town.

All six stylish rooms are sea and mountain facing. Leisurely walks and horse riding along the 8km stretch of fine-white beach sand, township tours, baboon walks, lighthouse tour, walking trails, marine bird watching, Chapman’s Peak drive, Cape Point Nature Reserve, Cape Point Vineyards and whale watching are among the activities the area offers.

  31. Its my wife’s birthday on the 28th of March. We got married on the 6th January and unfortunately couldn’t afford a honeymoon.

  41. I would love to treat my wife to this amazing getaway in this little piece of paradise, as she is the kindest soul I have ever known. We have a son who is Autistic and I sometimes wonder how this woman maintains her smile each day, even though I know she has pain that wells deep in her heart. She is the most selfless human being I have ever come across and she is a pillar of strength for many people including myself. My wife hasn’t spoilt herself in a very long time and I know that she would appreciate just relaxing at this gorgeous retreat with a delicious sundowner. Yes, the most simplest pleasures can recharge the mind,body and soul! She had to give up her day job to homeschool our son and guess what, he is really thriving! Our 10 year anniversary is coming up soon and I know that this angel would really appreciate this awesome prize! It will be a small token of my admiration that I have for this remarkable woman who inspires me each and every day!

  42. I recently suffered from the loss of my partner of almost 40 years. Its funny as we first met in Cape Town so this gorgeous place is quite symbolic for me. My partner passed away whilst we were in Cape Town and his ashes were scattered in the Atlantic ocean. I felt at peace as he always wanted to move to the Cape and he enjoyed swimming(yes swimming!) in the azure seas. As the one year anniversary of his passing approaches , I want to visit Cape Town so badly so that I can be one with Nature and find peace at the same time. I can imagine sipping on some tea as I watch the water sparkle with the rays of the sun. I know that I will be overwhelmed by a sense of peace and will feel my partners spirit with me.

  43. Dont think there are any words that can discribe why I would love to win this amazing midweek break. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Just look at that amazing view 🙂 Need I say more!!!

  44. The Last Word Hotel would be the perfect mid-week getaway for my fiance and I after our wedding celebrations next month. We are definitely going to need a break! Please send us!
