The iconic Gorgeous George Hotel reopens with a recipe for wellness.

Cape Town’s first and only Design Hotel™-affiliated abode returns with a bang! Situated in the heart of the Mother City’s central business district, the Gorgeous George oozes perennial city-living style; coupled with a Table Mountain backdrop it’s no wonder it’s become a city mainstay.

After a short and temporary closure, the Gorgeous George returns with some exciting new offerings including an en-vogue CBD cocktail menu put together by their very own conquistador of cocktails and South African winner of the Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge, Leighton Rathbone. Derived from Cannabis, Cannabidiol or, CBD oil is hailed for its anti-anxiety and stress-reducing properties without the high associated with Cannabis. Rathbone puts a cheeky spin on the classics to create the CannaAlexander, a coconut and almond-based Alexander with mint CBD Oil and a quirky rendition of the ultimate cocktail staple, the Cosmopolitan, which mixes CBD Cinnamon Oil, cranberry, citrus syrup, fresh lime and ginger. As well as the CBD delights Gigi Rooftop’s drinks menu offers a wide breadth of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options created with the same flair and creativity that Rathbone is known for.

The hotel’s Executive Chef, Guy Bennett returns with some Gigi Rooftop favourites.

Bennet brings a fusion of global cuisine to life with the very best locally-sourced ingredients including the ever-popular Spicy Lamb Ribs with mielie salsa and the decadent 70% Afrikoa Chocolate Fondant.

Adding to its in-room offerings is the Spiritual Wellbeing Experience. Coming this summer, the experience includes things such as including our one-on-one yoga sessions, a resident masseuse as well as mindfulness and meditation courses hosted by some of the city’s best practitioners.


Destination: Cape Town, CBD.
