Concept
'It should be the art of living, not the job of living' that's the concept behind every aspect of Banksia Boutique, a new and sophisticated concept in urban living by owner/manager, Shelley Kingston.

We live in a complex, fast moving time, and enjoying luxuries is often complicated by the arrangements and management required to make them available. Banksia Boutique has changed that by introducing a level of service, privileges and amenities simply not seen before.

'At Banksia Boutique I strive to give my guests an unprecedented level of luxury service, access and privileges - a glimpse of a lifestyle most only dream about in the form of one-of-a kind interior spaces with great furnishings, finishes, details and layouts. All this in a centrally located and unique neighbourhood.'

Together with seven years of creating successful interiors, Shelley Kingston has amalgamated a world of design knowledge and inspiration into one breathtaking space, having custom designed and manufactured each item - from furniture pieces to fine linen.

'A living working lifestyle showroom showcasing the best in well-appointed interiors - all this made accessible to the guests through this exclusive boutique hotel'

Lifestyle is a misunderstood word, yet profoundly important. It represents the sum of the basic choices we make on a day to day basis about who we are and how we live. Indeed - you are where you stay! Our guests are those who find their place in the world through intelligence and taste. These are groups of taste today who recognise each other by their sensibility and style. Lifestyle is therefore the way a person distinguishes himself or herself. It is the artistry of living.

Achieving ones dreams is never easy, but as an expert in delivering an inspirational lifestyle to the most sophisticated guest or clientele, Shelley Kingston is qualified to offer interiors professionally designed and executed through her full turn-key design studio, Suite Ten.

Suite Ten is an extension of Banksia Boutique, providing its guests with the opportunity to purchase or commission designer furniture and home ware items, all experienced in the boutique hotel. The entire lifestyle concept is offered to guests through a full interior design service specialising in the domestic, commercial and hospitality sectors.

'Together the two entities reflect my personal design signature - Banksia Boutique being the showroom serving to showcase the design talent produced by Suite Ten design studio.

It is hospitality as usual in the other luxury suites at Banksia Boutique, with scores of guests enjoying many seasons to come in this well located popular Cape Town boutique hotel.
