Century City Accommodation and Entertainment
Century City is a multi-use development covering 250 hectares located adjacent to the N1 north of the city centre. Started in 1997 by the property developer Monex, it has subsequently been taken over by Rabie Property Group. Incorporated into the suburb are a shopping centre, business parks, a theme park and various accommodation developments. This purpose built suburb had its skeptics in the beginning but has since proved its worth.
Through careful urban planning the suburb has a peaceful quality despite all the amenities available. Its situation off the N1 means that despite feeling like you’re miles from the hustle and bustle of the busy city in reality it is only a 10 minute drive away. The beautifully designed Tuscan style holiday apartments will put one at ease and create a relaxing atmosphere for any tired traveller whether it’s been a long day of meetings or a busy day looking at the sights of Cape Town.
If you’re travelling with kids then Ratanga Junction will be a must visit. Whether you want to or not really, once the kids see it they’ll nag you till you go. This theme park is on par Alton towers in the UK offers rides for all age groups, including the adults that never grew up. It’s a place that one could easily spend a full day with loads of entertainment for the kids and a selection of restaurants and bars. After a day running from ride to ride the kids would no doubt be happier staying in and watching T.V as opposed to spending the evening looking for a place to eat at a busy shopping mall.
The world class shopping to be had at the Canal Walk shopping centre is sure to keep anyone busy, while the huge selection of restaurants and bars will satisfy any palette. Although for true freedom of choice or perhaps to cut costs a self-catering apartment at century city is the answer. After a busy day in a shopping mall many would prefer to be able to relax in the quiet comfort of their private holiday apartment.
Century city self-catering accommodation offers all the comfort and luxury you could want for quiet night in. There is a television with satellite channels and a DVD player. The large open plan kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and the balcony is equipped with a patio set on which to enjoy your dinner. The kitchen includes a dishwasher and washing machine which can be especially useful when travelling with kids. The Century city accommodation includes secure parking if you have a rental car, which would be recommended as although the area is serviced by public transport the options of where you will be able to go are limited.
