Cape Town's Crown Jewel

An esteemed member of The Royal Portfolio, The Silo hotel hovers above the V&A Waterfront and offers fantastic views of Cape Town – the undisputed crown jewel on South Africa’s destination diadem. Guests can stay in a slice of history with this hotel located in the historic grain silo complex above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, an attraction to rival the likes of the Tate Modern and the Museum of Modern Art.

Cape Town is a city that seamlessly combines natural beauty with modern conveniences. A thriving nightlife, food and wine culture, rich historical heritage, and plethora of natural wonders make it a one-in-a-million destination that will have visitors of all cultures and creeds entertained.

Given its location, it’s unsurprising that The Silo is a hotel built in tribute to African arts and culture. Built by architectural stalwart Thomas Heatherwick the structure is a piece of art in its own right. Guests can choose from The Silo’s Royal Suites, Family Suites, Deluxe Superior Suites, Superior Suites, Luxury Rooms, The Silo Rooms, and the flagship Penthouse. Combine your stay in Cape Town with a Big 5 safari in Kruger National Park and a visit to Victoria Falls for the ultimate Southern Africa adventure.
