Introducing Labotessa, our Blog, and our founders and management

We are delighted to launch our new Labotessa Blog, and to update you about our Labotessa Luxury Boutique Hotel, Labotessa Café & Terrace, and Labotessa Fragrance Boutique. We will also update you on the latest news about our beautiful Cape Town and the Winelands, including latest Labotessa news, the culture and heritage of Cape Town, nature and health in Cape Town, local restaurant and wine news, and events in Cape Town.

Labotessa Luxury Boutique Hotel is a five star hotel nestled in the vibrant Cape Town city centre. It is located on Church Square, and is one of Cape Town’s  oldest buildings. Inside its historic facade is a state-of-the-art hotel with six Signature Suites, the largest Presidential Suite of its kind in Cape Town, a unique Lobotessa Fragrance Boutique, and the homely Labotessa Café & Terrace.

Our Labotessa founders Johan du Plessis and Dr Jan Fourie are South Africans who have been childhood friends, share a love for Cape Town, and have homes in Holland, Italy, and North America. Jan is a seasoned international traveller with a wealth of high-end guest hotel experience. Johan studied Hospitality Management in Switzerland, and gained extensive experience at the Hyatt Hotels Corporation in the United Kingdom and Europe.
