Ennismore, a fast-growing lifestyle hospitality company, and Kasada, a leading African hospitality investor, announced a partnership to bring the first Mama Shelter hotel to South Africa.

The new hotel, Mama Shelter Cape Town, signifies a major milestone for Ennismore’s expansion as it is the company’s first hotel signing in South Africa.

Scheduled to open soon, the hotel will be part of a vibrant mixed-use development featuring hotels, restaurants, and retail stores. It aims to redefine Cape Town’s hospitality scene with its energetic and stylish atmosphere.

Mama Shelter Cape Town will offer 127 guest rooms across various categories, catering to different traveller needs. It will also feature 68 branded residences, ranging from studios to four-bedroom units.

Guests can expect a rooftop restaurant with panoramic city views, a gym, co-working spaces, and a classic Mama Shelter all-day dining venue with a poolside area.

The hotel also introduces a brand-new concept: Mama Play, a 742-square-metre entertainment space featuring bowling, karaoke, dedicated food and beverage areas, and event spaces.

Situated in the heart of Cape Town, Mama Shelter Cape Town will be housed in the City Park building, offering convenient access to the city’s attractions.

“More than a hotel, more than a restaurant or a bar, Mama Shelter is a place for living – a place to meet, eat, drink, sing and dream,” said Cedric Gobilliard, Brand COO for Mama Shelter at Ennismore.  

“Cape Town is a dynamic city that offers something for everyone, so it is the perfect place to introduce our new Mama Play concept. This signing marks an important milestone for Ennismore, as it is our first signing for any of our brands in South Africa, an exciting new destination for us.” 

Olivier Granet and David Damiba, Managing Partners and co-CEOs of Kasada, added: “We are looking forward to create with Ennismore an exceptional lifestyle property for business and leisure guests and an unmissable destination for the local community that will help to further revitalise this popular part of Cape Town’s CDB.”

Mama Shelter is a growing hospitality brand known for its energetic and stylish hotels. Since the opening of its first location in Paris in 2008, Mama Shelter has expanded to over 15 destinations worldwide, with upcoming openings in Nice, Dubai, Casablanca, and Los Angeles.
