Avatara Guest House

Avatara Guest House www.avatara.co.za 25 Leinster Road Green Point Cape Town 0823044000 Opened in 2008 Avatara, with its high ceilings and polished wooden floors, combines the best of the old and the new.

Each of its spacious rooms retains beautiful period features together with stylish modern fixtures and furnishings including tasteful en suite bathrooms, luxuriant king/queen-size beds and flat screen TV's. There is a communal kitchen and a tranquil patio space where guests enjoy a buffet breakfast in the mornings or relax with and mingle in the afternoons. Coming from the Hindi word meaning 'heaven on earth', Avatara is indeed a slice of tranquility beside the bustling heart of the city. Avatara is an ideal place to explore the delights of Cape Town from. Loved for the convenience of location, guests simply walk to popular sights and especially enjoy the hundreds of unique restaurants on offer in the neighborhood. Some call it the 'Soho' of Cape Town, Green Point is a neighborhood spilling out from the slopes of Signal Hill and the city centre which makes it part historical, part city-life and yet very much a desired living destination of the Cape.

Ballerina Kitty Phetla performing a rain dance in South Africa in 2017.

"It was during the Western Cape drought and I performed the rain dance in the middle of Thewaterskloof Dam, whose main reservoir was dry."

Inspired by Queen Modjadji, The Rain Queen of the Balobedu people and shot on location at the nearly empty Theewaterskloof Dam, the dance was choreographed and performed by soloist Kitty Phetla. About a week after dancing at the reservoir, it started to rain in the Western Cape.

Sadly my beloved Avatara has had to temporarily close down. We are bearing the Corona financial storm and trying our best so that in a year's time we will be able to open our doors again. The tragedy of this event has affected so many small businesses and the narrative around why this is happening has brought out the activist in me. I implore you to watch this whether you agree or not - we are not living in normal times and so it is crucial to have a 360 degree narrative of all sides. I will not loose everything I have worked for in my life for what is being forced on us by corrupt and evil plans. I will fight for the truth until my end....

To all my Family and friends overseas,
please buy South African wines!
You could make the difference in keeping our wine industry alive and securing the livelihood of the thousands of farm workers and their families. This new ban on alcohol (13 July 2020) could decimate what is left of the wine industry. 🍷🥂🍾🍇 #DrinkSouthAfricanWine
