The Penthouse at The Silo, Cape Town

Set on Cape Town’s historic V&A Waterfront, The Royal Portfolio’s newly opened Silo Hotel is South Africa’s most anticipated luxury hotel opening in years.

Housed in the grain elevator portion of the silo building originally constructed in 1924, the 28-room hotel has been transformed by British architect Thomas Heatherwick. Pillowed glass windows have been incorporated into the original architecture of the upper floors, a design feature that blends contemporary elements and the building’s industrial past.

Occupying the entire 10th floor, the 211-square metre, one-bedroom Penthouse offers spectacular views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town cityscape. A mix of contemporary and classic elements like bold South African artworks and handmade Egyptian chandeliers have been incorporated into the suite’s design, to contrast with the existing industrial architecture.

Featuring a 10-seat private dining room, private cinema and 24-square-metre balcony, the suite can comfortably double as an entertainment space. There is also a private study, spa treatment room, his and hers changing rooms, and a magnificent bathroom featuring a freestanding plunge bath.
