Close to the vibrant V&A Waterfront, with breath-taking views of Table Mountain, the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is one of Cape Town’s most iconic residences. Painted pink to mark the end of WWI, it has remained the same rosy hue ever since. Beautifully located within a leafy garden estate, a great selection of facilities makes it popular with couples and families. Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 21st birthday here and John Lennon once meditated in the gardens.
Each guest wing has its own unique character with individually designed rooms and private gardens. The Oasis Pool is one of the largest in South Africa while the adults-only Cottage Pool is more secluded. Other activities include tennis, golf practice nets and a fitness centre. There is a children’s club for under 12's and a teens’ lounge.
Unwind in the peaceful Librisa Spa or indulge in afternoon tea in the sitting room, saving space for a slice of the Mount Nelson’s famous cheesecake. Oasis Bistro offers long, lazy breakfasts and The Lord Nelson restaurant serves seasonal specialities. Don’t miss a nightcap in the celestial Planet Bar, a favourite haunt of fashionable Capetonians.
