While South Africa is famed for its jaw-dropping natural beauty – and the world-class, luxury hotels that give access to these experiences – the country’s cities also offer some truly sumptuous hotels. We often say that Cape Town is perhaps the most beautifully situated city in the world. Here, framed by monolithic mountains that truly take the breath away, you can experience the old-world glamour of Ellerman House; a boutique space with eye-opening views of the Atlantic, coupled with fascinating arty touches. Talking of art, the new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art (MOCAA) plays host to its own top-tier hotel, The Silo. One of the city’s most exclusive places to stay, the stylish Silo boasts towering views over the trendy V&A Waterfront.

South Africa’s winelands offer a resplendent backdrop of rolling hills, monumental mountains, and mouth-watering vines of grape. After tasting the local wares, you’ll find the Delaire Graff estate. Nestled between majestic mountains, Delaire offers gorgeous rolling views and luxurious, world-class hospitality. If all you want is to escape the urban oasis of Cape Town itself, then La Mont estate is only an hour’s drive away. This elegant, 26-bedroom hotel and vineyard sits in what is known as the ‘French Corner’ of the cape. The proof is in its locally grown wine.

For something a little different, the country also plays host to a stellar array of safari lodges – the ideal places in which to soak up the natural world, combining zoology with world-class ZZZology. The splendorous Dulini Lodge – beneath the shade of ancient ebony and leadwood trees – is a true haven of tranquil, riverside relaxation, where you can drink in its eye-opening sunsets while having to lift barely a finger to watch nature wander by. Otherwise, there is the awe-inspiring allure of the Singita lodges, where safari is connected closely with sustainability and conservation strategies. Limited guest numbers add to the sense of inspiring exclusivity and peace here. It’s really just you and the animals. You will of course have your own bed though.
