Tow­er­ing high above Cape Town, the new Silo Ho­tel gives guests the op­por­tu­nity to spend the night in a his­toric and cul­tur­ally sig­nif­i­cant struc­ture while en­joy­ing all the lux­u­ries of an exclusive re­sort.

The “Mother City” of Cape Town is known for its vi­brant food and wine scene, di­verse cul­tures, and stun­ning land­scapes – all of which are show­cased in the Silo Ho­tel. Con­structed in the grain el­e­va­tor por­tion of the silo com­plex, the ho­tel com­prises 28 rooms in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed by Liz Bi­den to high­light the unique ar­chi­tec­ture of the struc­ture.

Guests will be able to in­dulge in spa treat­ments, en­joy a view of Ta­ble Moun­tain while sip­ping an af­ter­noon tea, swim in a glass pool, or re­lax on the roof with a glass of cham­pagne – or, head out to see all that Cape Town has to offer be­fore re­turn­ing to your pri­vate room to watch the sun­set over the har­bour.

The Silo Ho­tel will be open­ing in Septem­ber 2017, along with the ad­ja­cent Zeitz Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Art Africa – a mod­ern art mu­seum lo­cated just be­low the silo. Pri­vate tours will be of­fered for guests of the ho­tel.

From top, Mag­nif­i­cent views of Ta­ble Moun­tain, Lion’s Head and Sig­nal Hill from Silo Ho­tel’s Delux Suite; Wil­las­ton Bar’s colour­ful & eclec­tic in­te­ri­ors
