Newlands is known as Cape Town's 'green' suburb and is indeed one of the most sought after, lush southern suburbs, just 15 minutes from the city centre on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. Newlands is synonymous with the Newlands Rugby Stadium - 13 South African rugby test matches have been hosted here with 9 out of 13 wins for the South African team and Newlands Cricket ground, nestled under old Oak trees with Devils Peak in the background, a truly Capetonian experience.

The suburb is 10 minutes drive from the Constantia Winelands; Rhodes Memorial and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens are close by and the upmarket Cavendish Square shopping mall, with its many shops and restaurants, is within easy access. Newlands Ravine is a standing invitation to the seasoned hiker or the local Montebello Design Centre, on more stable ground, has a sculpture garden, studios, a restaurant and the first contemporary San Bushman Gallery.

Newlands, located in Cape Town's Southern Suburbs in the Western Cape, is a vibrant and historic neighborhood known for its lush greenery, cultural attractions, and outdoor activities.

Here are five interesting things about Newlands:

  1. Newlands Rugby and Cricket Stadiums: Newlands is home to two iconic sports venues: Newlands Rugby Stadium and Newlands Cricket Ground. Newlands Rugby Stadium is one of the oldest rugby stadiums in the world and the home ground of the Stormers rugby team. Newlands Cricket Ground is renowned for its picturesque setting and is the home of the Cape Cobras cricket team. Both stadiums have a rich sporting history and host international matches, attracting fans from around the world.

  2. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden: Adjacent to Newlands lies the world-famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. This botanical paradise showcases South Africa's diverse flora in a stunning setting against the backdrop of Table Mountain. Visitors can explore themed gardens, enjoy leisurely walks along meandering pathways, attend outdoor concerts, and discover indigenous plant species unique to the Cape Floral Kingdom.

  3. Newlands Forest: Newlands is surrounded by lush greenery and is in close proximity to Newlands Forest, a popular outdoor recreation area. The forest offers hiking trails, mountain biking routes, and picnicking spots, providing opportunities for residents and visitors to immerse themselves in nature and enjoy scenic views of the city and Table Mountain.

  4. Historic Architecture: Newlands boasts a wealth of historic architecture, including elegant Victorian and Edwardian-style homes, as well as Cape Dutch and Georgian buildings. Many of these buildings are well-preserved and contribute to the neighborhood's charm and character. The Newlands Village area is particularly notable for its quaint streets lined with cafes, restaurants, and boutique shops housed in heritage buildings.

  5. University of Cape Town (UCT): Newlands is located in close proximity to the University of Cape Town (UCT), one of Africa's leading academic institutions. UCT's picturesque campus, situated on the slopes of Devil's Peak, overlooks the Newlands area. The university is renowned for its academic excellence, cultural diversity, and contributions to research and innovation.

Overall, Newlands offers a unique blend of sports heritage, natural beauty, cultural attractions, and academic excellence, making it a desirable destination for residents and visitors alike in Cape Town's Western Cape.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
