Scale of 90-100
Designed by London-based architect Thomas Heatherwick, this stunning contemporary hotel is set in the repurposed elevator tower of a historic grain silo complex above the adjoining Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. A private art collection augments the modern, colorful interiors decorated by the owner of The Royal Portfolio, Liz Biden. The 28 stylish lodgings 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” and a casual rooftop restaurant for lighter fare. The hotel also encompasses a narrow rooftop pool, plus a spa with a fitness area.
