“An involuntary exclamation of delight.” That is how our editor-in-chief describes his reaction upon seeing his Deluxe Superior Suite at The Silo, a modern masterpiece of a hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. Read more about his visit below and in the August 2018 Hideaway Report.

The Silo

This stunning contemporary hotel, designed by London-based architect Thomas Heatherwick, is set in the repurposed elevator tower of a historic grain silo complex above the adjoining Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. Modern, colorful interiors decorated by the owner of The Royal Portfolio, Liz Biden, and augmented by a private art collection. Twenty-eight stylish guest accommodations feature sensational harbor or mountain views, eclectic furnishings and artwork, rich fabrics, high ceilings and small balconies.

From the editor: “I can’t recall the last time I visited a new hotel that I found so exhilarating and that seemed such an instantaneous addition to the life and character of a city.”
