the ultimate high-tech, beautiful eco-room experience

At theLAB Cape Town | Tarragona, you can enjoy the sights of our Cape Town, the Mother City: the wonderful ambience of the oldest South African vinyards of Constantia, the beautiful tranquil setting of our guest house’s large estate, our cool outside bar and pool area, or your room’s own private jacuzzi with a view... But theLAB room automation system will undoubtedly be the star of your stay with us.

She is incorporated into each of our modern, minimalistic-styled rooms, which are, in line with our eco-conscious 'green' ethos, all powered by solar-derived energy.

Have fun and ask theLAB by voice command to: “make me a coffee,” “turn on the TV,” “close the blinds,” “set the alarm,” or “turn off the lights.”

why theLAB Cape Town | Tarragona experience?

On our large leafy estate, you can escape the buzz of the busy Cape Town life and sightseeing. Set in the touristy suburb of Hout Bay, you can step out and enjoy the Constantia vineyards on our doorstep, go down to the local fishing harbour, take the scenic Chapman’s Peak road along the coast, or take the hop-on, hop-off City Sightseeing bus into the city and along the beautiful coastal route through to trendy Camps Bay – and the Table Mountain cable car.

Unwinding at our outside bar area with drinks on tap – next to the swimming pool – is always a favourite. Or have a massage in our tranquil spa area. Discover our perfectly balanced juxtapositioning of tranquil setting, accommodating atmosphere, and modern and high-tech theLAB rooms and facilities.

Take the convenient City Sightseeing hop-on, hop-off bus to surrounding Cape Town sights or vineyards – it has a convenient stop near our guest house (book online here!) – or hire one of our bicycles or electric scooters to discover the rest of our charming Hout Bay area.

And – why fight to get into a restaurant in Cape Town during peak season? We have a fully-equipped restaurant with a chef and a wine and drinks menu to tempt any connoisseur. Lie back in our cool or heated pool, or in your own room’s jacuzzi, or enjoy sundowners on our verandah at sunset (with drinks-on-tap), socialising in a friendly atmosphere. theLAB Cape Town | Tarragona will keep you entertained and relaxed during your stay.

We hope to see you soon in our tranquil slice of paradise within the beautiful city of Cape Town!

theLAB SPA | Cape Town

Put your feet up and have a treatment or a couples massage in our tranquil tree-covered spa area...
