The Silo Hotel has earned a spot on the “50 Most Instagrammable Pools in the World” list complied by Big 7 Travel; this is the second title earned by the pool.


Cape Town, South Africa (04 October 2022) – The Silo Hotel at the V&A Waterfront is one of Cape Town’s newest highlights in travel. The hotel has been built inside of an old grain silo, and the architecture is unbelievable. Since its opening, the hotel has been earning many accolades from around the world, and the latest is for how “instagrammable” it is, 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 in 2019, 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 place on the “50 Most Instagrammable Pools in the World“. The proudly South African pool lands at number 22 on this list. In 2021, it was named the third best pool in the world by the same publication.

“Global travel site Big 7 Travel has officially released The 50 Most Instagrammable Pools in the World 2022. Our annual hashtag tally, which is now in its 2nd year, analyses swimming pools that hold the most ‘gram appeal.

The full list includes 50 destinations on nearly every continent, from infinity pools overlooking Caribbean turquoise oceans to a golden energy pool surrounded by the towering Himalayas. We ranked these breathtaking pools based on the number of times the hashtag was used on Instagram.”
