MannaBay Leading Design Hotel

At the recent World Travel Awards, MannaBay was once again awarded winner of both Africa and South Africa Leading Design Hotel for 2018.  Its not hard to see why….


With its spectacular location just below Table Mountain lending itself to magnificent views, the rooms are ‘jaw-droppingly’ gorgeous.


MannaBay has one suite, the Versailles Suite, and seven luxury rooms, including Black & White, Orchid, Flamingo, Explorer, Persian, Pom Pom and Oriental.

Sleeping just 16 guests to ensure a more exclusive and intimate stay, each room is individually designed and decorated.

Each room was brought to life by the inspiration of a number of interesting wallpaper designs.

Migration I Sprites of the Sky.jpg
Artist Gregg Brill: Gregg is responsible for the impressive swallow artwork hanging in MannaBay. Entitled “Migration I: Sprites of the Sky”, it tells the story of the annual swallow migration from Europe to South Africa. The tiny birds, some weighing less than 20g undertake an epic journey of some 6000 miles every year, chasing the summer in search of food, mates and a home. Migration I: Sprites of the Sky comprises three key elements: wood, plexiglass and brass. Each element depicts a key element of the migration and has a special story to tell. The piece has exactly 200 birds which signify the 200 miles they travel each day. Each bird in the installation weighs between 12g and 65g – the exact weight of the birds that migrate from Europe to South Africa each year. One bird faces the opposite direction – the beginning of a never-ending journey.

This incredible display of swallows titled Migration I: Sprites of the Sky is showcased ‘flying high’ above the high tea area.
