“Our vision is to combine opulence and nature to culminate in lifestyle artistry” - Ahsan Hassan Darvesh

The Oceanside of Victoria Road will see the original Ambassador Hotel transformed into the AURUM PRESIDENTIAL RESIDENCES, while the AURUM LUXURY RESIDENCES will occupy an elevated position on the opposite mountainside.

Elegant cascading waterfall facades are a uniting feature on both buildings, linking them architecturally and providing a hint at the quintessential luxury that lies within. Their respective reception areas do the same – adorned with Murano glass and crystal chandeliers by Venetian glass-blowing artists.

AURUM sits right on the ocean’s edge. Soon to be redeveloped on the site of the iconic Ambassador Hotel in Bantry Bay, Cape Town - AURUM will redefine the concept of limited edition living.

Indeed, the continent has yet to see a development of this calibre. So timeless in style, so future forward in spirit, so uncompromising on quality, AURUM will confidently compete with the very best New York, Dubai and London has to offer.

Da’Realty is an international player intent on turning property development into an art form. With AURUM it will deliver a stroke of pure brilliance. Only a true work of art could pay homage to this increadible setting, AURUM is that living masterpiece.
