Our Story

Cape Town’s only mountain sanctuary, nestled on the slopes of Table Mountain

FUTURE FOUND SANCTUARY

Where we stand, steps from trails on Table Mountain and part of the Cape Floral Kingdom inspires all that we do.

Jim Brett - Our Founder

Future Found was formed by brand builder, retail and design industry leader Jim Brett, who over the course of his thirty-year career, has consistently influenced forward-looking programs that have set new industry standards.

 

The barefoot luxury, elemental design and selections of local art that fill the villas and gardens are all part of this home design guru’s intention for guests to slow down and align with the rhythms of nature. “Living in connection with nature is the foundation of many ancient wisdoms – it is encoded in our DNA. I believe this ancient wisdom is our future found. Our 7-acre property enveloped in mountain vistas melts your problems away, which allows you to create space and awaken to new possibilities. As Cape Town’s only Regenerative Travel designation, I am honored to share this magical place with our guests and to know that every visit fortifies its beauty.

A Natural Retreat

Teeming with peach trees and pines, fynbos and ferns, Future Found Sanctuary is the embodiment of a natural retreat and an ideal home base to explore the region’s wonders. Guests can start the day on a guided mountain hike to a waterfall, and spend the afternoon exploring many of the region’s nearby wonders, including world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Our supremely talented master horticulturist, Cherise Viljoen, previously worked with Kirstenbosch for many years. Both Sanctuary’s gardens and Kirstenbosch gardens border the Table Mountain National Park, meaning that the flora and fauna have an uninterrupted fynbos corridor between the two, and share many of the same beautiful plant species.

 

Our chefs use the seasonal bounty that grows organically in our gardens. Our tea sommelier has crafted teas that support guests in rising, realigning, reflecting and resting. Our amenities are designed with Future Found’s Nature’s Rhythm’s functional fragrances made from plants that grow on our property and our dedicated wellbeing guru, Romy Paull, engages an entire team of experts in ancient and modern wisdom. Romy designs bespoke experiences for guests that encourage a 5-sense, 5-element and 5-rhythm experience of nature.

 

Cape Town's First and Only Regenerative Travel Designation

This designation reflects our commitment to not only protecting the people, nature and culture of South Africa but putting in place practices that allow them to thrive.​

 

From instilling nutrients back into the soil of our gardens, to creating unique experiences that connect our guests to our local community and environments, to supporting indigenous artisans in our decor and shop, we aim to contribute meaningfully to South Africa and continuously improve this special place for future generations.​
