Recommended place to stay:
The Silo Hotel
Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa|www.theroyalportfolio.com|
Official star rating:
Design and luxury combine seamlessly at the Silo, one of Cape Town’s – if not Africa’s – most striking design hotels. Offering the last word in contemporary luxury, it’s one hotel that’s worth the splurge.
Bespoke suites are filled with contemporary African art, while the over-sized geometric windows offer glorious city vistas. Dreaming of a bath with a view? You’ve come to the right place.
There’s a large on-site spa and restaurant, while pre-dinner cocktails in the Williston Bar are a must. Sunset is best enjoyed from the remarkable rooftop pool.
Set in the heart of the Silo District, the bustling V&A Waterfront – Cape Town’s restaurant and retail heart – is right next door.
It’s a newly gentrified district filled largely with office workers and tourists, so don’t expect much local flavour, but the city centre and Atlantic Seaboard are but a few minutes’ drive away.
