THE SILO, CAPE TOWN

It’s the per­fect base from which to ex­plore the thriv­ing art hub of Cape Town—six beau­ti­fully ren­o­vated floors of the grain silo com­plex above the Zeitz Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Africa. Lo­cated in the heart of Cape Town and with views over the V&A Water­front, the sen­si­tively ren­o­vated his­toric build­ing is set to be­come a land­mark as syn­ony­mous with the Cape Town sky­line as the Eif­fel Tower is with Paris. The ho­tel has 28 rooms—in­clud­ing a spec­tac­u­lar, light-flooded pent­house— each dec­o­rated with colour­ful and eclec­tic pieces that soften the mod­ern in­dus­trial ar­chi­tec­ture. Book a treat­ment in the spa, pop down­stairs for a guided tour of the mu­seum, which is set to open its doors in Septem­ber, or sim­ply en­joy the sun­set as you sip a drink by the rooftop pool. How­ever you look at it, life at the Silo is mighty re­laxed. theroy­al­port­fo­lio.com
