Scale of 90-100
Stunning contemporary hotel, designed by London-based architect Thomas Heatherwick, 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. The 28 stylish guest accommodations feature sensational harbor or mountain views, eclectic furnishings and artwork, rich fabrics, high ceilings and small balconies. Dining options include The Granary Café for “honest and approachable food that showcases seasonal, local ingredients,” a casual rooftop restaurant for lighter fare and The Willaston Bar. Narrow rooftop swimming pool, plus a spa on the fourth floor with five treatment rooms, a fitness area and a sauna. Yacht excursions and helicopter tours can be arranged.
