Set inside what was once Sub-Saharan Africa’s tallest building, The Silo is a celebration of cutting edge architecture and modern luxury. Ingenious multi-faceted windows let in plenty of light as well as the sights of the vibrant Mother City including Cape Town’s picturesque Victoria & Albert Waterfront. On the ground floor is a collection of some of South Africa’s finest contemporary art, carefully curated by acclaimed designer Liz Biden.

Her artistic flair carries across into the 28 sumptuous, spacious guestrooms, each one completely individual in design and decor. Choose from seven room categories, based on size and view. The Silo’s crowning glory is the one-bedroom penthouse which faces Table Mountain.  

Facilities at the Silo include a tranquil full-service day spa, a gym, sauna and rooftop swimming pool. Dining options include a cafe, two bars and a restaurant, whilst the concierge is on hand to help with activity planning or meal reservations around town.
