Wise up in a hotel atop an art museumCape Town, South Africa

Like everywhere else in the world, the working waterfront in Cape Town isn’t working as hard as it once did, so for the past three decades – give or take a few years – there’s been a move to convert sections of it into mixed-use residential, tourism and retail developments. The latest addition, opening this March, is the Silo luxury hotel. It has just 28 rooms located in the elevator tower of a grain silo that was decommissioned in 2001. It will sit above the six-storey Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, due to launch in September 2017, with views of the harbour, city and Robben Island. The glass rooftop swimming pool and bar is sure to become the must-chill destination for the city’s most stylish denizens.

  • Rooftop swimming pool
  • Free wi-fi
  • Gym
  • Sky terrace

Double rooms from about AU$1170 a night.
