The Ambassador Hotel presented prime positioning, where all elements of nature present itself to be woven into the artistry of the building – a focus that is integral to Arteche Investment’s ethos.

AURUM is the crown jewel of South African luxury property, located in an exclusive strip offering opulent elegance right on the water in the ever-popular Bantry Bay area.

Every aspect of AURUM’s development has been carefully considered and each element is crafted by top artisans from around the world.

The R900 million marble-clad AURUM involved the redevelopment of both the old Ambassador Hotel and the Ambassador Suites, a landmark on the Atlantic Seaboard. With the Atlantic Ocean undulating below and Lion’s Head gazing down upon it, AURUM is a living masterpiece, paying homage to its incredible setting.


The AURUM Presidential Residences lives on the oceanside of Victoria Road, while the AURUM Luxury Residences stand elegantly elevated on the opposite mountainside.

The eight Presidential Residences each occupy their own floor with private lift access, while elegant Italian hand-stitched mosaics with golden AURUM emblems adorn both buildings, linking them architecturally and providing a hint of the quintessential luxury that it harbours.

Aurum Side Face

So timeless in style, so future forward in spirit, so uncompromising on quality, AURUM will confidently compete with the very best that New York, Dubai and London has to offer.

AURUM truly is the ultimate symmetry of art, life and passion. Quite possibly for the first time ever, a Cape Town property stands alongside, and even supersede, the very best on offer globally.
