The Silo Hotel in Cape Town has landed a Top 3 spot amongst the best swimming pools globally; the proudly South African hotel shares the podium with Italy and Western Australia.


Cape Town, South Africa (02 June 2021) – The Silo Hotel at the V&A Waterfront is one of Cape Town’s newest highlights in travel. The hotel is built into an old grain silo, and the architecture is unbelievable. The hotel is starting to earn accolades around the world, and the latest is for the third-best pool in the world as voted by Big 7 Travel.

1.5 million people from 60 countries take surveys for Big 7 Travel and vote for the best travel accolades worldwide. Big 7 Media share several lists which promote global travel. In the past, we have shared their lists about South Africa, including being the 5th most “Instagrammable” county in the world or Kruger and Cape Town listed in the top 50 destinations to visit after the Covid-19 pandemic. There have been many more, but these are just a few of the exciting accolades awarded to South Africa.

The Silo hotel pool boasts some incredible views, which is why the pool has earned a top-three spot!

“Located in Cape Town on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the Silo Hotel occupies the grain elevator portion of a historic grain silo complex above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA). The hotel bills itself as “a celebration of art, style, architecture and design”. Its spectacular rooftop pool has glass sides and unrivalled views of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head as well as the Atlantic Ocean and city skyline. Sunsets from here are mesmerising and memorable.” – Big 7 Travel
