The art of relaxation

Naturally, the best trips for travel-loving art obsessives are the ones that combine adventure with the chance to explore artistic interpretations from around the world – making The Silo in Cape Town, South Africa, an absolute must.

It's the art experience, 24/7, with tours of the eclectic African art scene, commissioned pieces in each hotel room and the lobby, and the chance to stroll around The Vault, Silo's own art gallery.

If you're looking for a contemporary art fix, The Silo is also located above the Zeitz Mocaa – the world's largest contemporary African art museum.

The Silo is home to Mohau Modisakeng’s Ditaola series and commissioned pieces by Jody Paulsen, Frances Goodman’s Blue Velvet, and Hooded Lady I, II & III, as well as a vibrant piece by Athi Patra Ruga just behind the lobby desk.
