Owners, Cliff and Tabea
Jacobs, restored and converted their exquisitely
beautiful 109 year-old manor house into an exclusive 5-star boutique hotel some years ago and have since gained an enviable reputation for the excellent quality of their product. Internationally acclaimed, Villa Belmonte stands as a monument to their unyielding commitment to all-embracing, finely detailed hospitality - a role model for similar establishments in South Africa!
Tabea, who is Swiss, is not only blonde and beautiful but speaks four languages and has a degree in business economics from the St Gallen School of Economics, Switzerland. She became interested in the hotel business after she married Cliff and is now a vital part of the Villa Belmonte's management team.
Cliff, who was born in Durban, has been passionate about hotels for as long as he can remember. It's a passion that started even before he registered for a three-year course in Hotel Management at the Johannesburg Hotel School. And it has remained undimmed over the past 35 years.

The gracious lounge, and its cosy bar stocked with rare Cape ports and single-malt Scotch whiskies, is a peaceful haven.
