Awe-inspiring

  • 5 out of 5
My girlfriend and I were afforded the opportunity to stay at Enigma Mansion in December 2012. Having lived in Cape Town for more than ten years, before relocating overseas, we thought that we knew of all the hidden gems that the mother city had to offer. Our stay at Enigma Mansion proved us very wrong.

A stay at Enigma Mansion can best be described as being immersed in pure luxury. Well-travelled individuals would expect the attention to detail that surrounds you at Enigma from five-star hotels around the world.

On the day of arrival we received a pre-arrival phone call from Enigma’s General Manager Louis Brink to enquire about our arrival time. Upon arrival at the mansion, his entire team was waiting on the front drive, ready to welcome us. Luggage was swiftly brought up to our room, the car was parked and Louis proceeded to give us an orientation of this stunning property which stretches over more than 7000 square meters and is situated in the heart of affluent Camps Bay.

Tech savvy guests will feel right at home. There is an iPad located in each room to control different aspects of the mansion; music, movies, lights and blinds to name a few.

The pool is amazing and we spent the majority of time alongside/in it, listening to music being played from the impressive outdoor sound system (controlled by an iPad of course). In the evening plates of fresh fruit, vegetables and cold cuts were prepared for us, which we enjoyed on the terrace along with chilled champagne, watching the sun go down.

The following morning Louis and his staff were waiting for us with a sumptuous breakfast which was served on the terrace underneath beautifully designed sun umbrellas.

After an amazing breakfast, Louis gave us a tour of the grounds, showing us The Enigma Mansion Studio and Guest House and Staff Quarters. Living on property ensures that Louis is able to attend to the guests’ need at a moment’s notice. There is a Massage and Meditation Temple. We simply used the Meditation Temple as yet another location to unwind, enjoy the views and trying to take in everything this property had offer. It of course did not take long for us to be served water and snacks without having asked for it.

It will take many days to fully appreciate the detail that went into the creation of Enigma. The ancient Indian double doors that lead into the anteroom or specially commissioned artwork that can be found across the property.

A big thank you to Louis and his team!

A Cap d'Antibes Palace in South Africa

A Cap d'Antibes Palace in South Africa
  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 2 weeks in January 2014 at this magnificent residence. Convinced by friends from the movie industry who had filmed in the residence we had first been reluctant to book because of the high non negotiable price of 100 000 Rand per night. Looking back I must say that this price gets you a presidential suite at the best hotels in the world but you simply cant compare any presidential suite (which easily could cost double ) to this palace.
The residence and the entire place is just out of this world. If your desire is to live one time in a true ultra luxurious palace but with the convenience of the latest available technology (like 3 D TV ,Cinema, AirCondition, Floorheating, movie and music server or lights and mood settings etc. ) fully controlled effortless from 40 IPADs virtually anywhere in the residence and the park ,then this is the place to go.
This is not a place for the friends of contemporary design. Enigma is pure opulence, sensuality, a dream for senses. The smells, the dimmed lights, the sensual music coming from everywhere It is like a big movie setting with you in the middle of it. If you like Louis XIV mixed with palatial eclectic style then you will tremendously appreciate the owners love to most exquisite details on a level I have never seen before. Even hinges and door handles are handmade in Argentina. I haven’t seen such beautiful work in the grandest old European hotels.The setting is mind blowing. You are surrounded by Lions Head, Table Mountain , The 12 Apostle mountains and also have unobstructed sea view all over the Atlantic. The terraces around the pool and the graceful majestic architecture of the residence make you feel you are in an old villa on the Cote d’ Azur and not in South Africa. Pure tranquillity and peace in overwhelming nature while we had been only 2 minutes away from the beach and nightlife in Camps Bay. Security : Not an issue . The entire property is safe as an American embassy and lays the safest triangle of streets in Cape Town secured by more than 15 guards around the clock. From what we learned there had been no incident or crime in this triangle for the last 5 years.
We booked the residence with a cook and servers and that was really a mistake. The food was so superb that we hardly ever left the property. Yes , it was expensive but if compared what £ 5400 nightly rate gets you in a London hotel then this was the best deal we ever got .

A PALACE BEYOND MINE AND ANYBODYS IMAGINATION

  • 5 out of 5
We got to know the residence as a pilot for a US series was filmed in the mansion.Everybody from the entire crew was blown away by the beauty and perfection of the home. None of us has ever seen a residence like this . Given the fact that we live in Bel Air California and have travelled and seen the best hotels in the world Enigma Mansion is as good as it can get. There are other stunning places in this world but if you love glamour, perfection ,beauty and luxury while at the same time peace, tranquility and total privacy and that all in the most incredible nature setting between mountains and beach then I cant think of any other place which could compete. We stayed only for one week but we got already addicted to the elegance and beauty of the place. The 3 D Parisian style cinema in the basement is just out of this world and I will never forget swimming in the Versace style pool with the sensual music playing from everywhere. There is so much to see around Cape Town but we never left the property . Who lives in this place doesnt need to go anywhere . You have it all at home. The property is advertised as " The lifestyle of the Great Gatsby " but I must say that Mr Gatsby did not live in a place of such perfection and beauty.
