The V&A Waterfront is regarded by many as the best place to stay in Cape Town and, with over 24 million visitors a year, remains Africa’s busiest tourist attraction. The prime positioning of the V&A Waterfront boasts sweeping views of the ocean, city bowl and mountain peaks. Up to 100,000 people visit every day during peak season.
Set on the edge of a natural, historic working harbour with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, it offers local and international visitors a cosmopolitan mix of experiences including shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, cafes, galleries, exhibitions and entertainment. As well as access to the Robben Island Ferry through the Nelson Mandela Gateway.
On 1 March 2017, the V&A Waterfront welcomed its newest five-star hotel – The Silo.
The Silo Hotel is a magical space towering above the Waterfront, surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City. Built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex, the hotel occupies six floors above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA).
The hotel will offer 28 luxury rooms, including a penthouse suite, in addition to the spa, gym, swimming pool, restaurants and bars.
