Pink is a bold colour to paint a hotel unless you have some décor savvy to back it up. Luckily, that is just what the Belmond Mount Nelson has. There is a whole lot of style going on in this venue and what’s more it has a great big mountain at its back door, transforming an interestingly coloured building into an oasis of elegance and sophisticated charm.

But you won’t come to the Mount Nelson just to look at it. The hotel provides more than 190 traditional guestrooms and suites for guests to choose from. All of these accommodations have an old-world charm blended seamlessly with 21st century mod-cons that will make you feel right at home.

LEISURE

With activities to fill every hour of your day, the question in Cape Town isn’t what should we do – but what should we do next? And where better to begin this active schedule than at the Belmond Mount Nelson hotel, with its stunning gardens, ideal proximity to the city and, of course, its perfect location at the foot of Table Mountain. Walk, hike, swim, shop or spa – the possibilities for activities here are endless.

Serving straight fire

Get your head in the game with a round of tennis on the Belmond Mount Nelson’s state-of-the-art courts. Serving not up to scratch? Volleys not what they used to be? Not a problem. Resident pro tennis coach Barkie McKrea is available to teach anyone from beginners to advanced players. With equipment available for hire from the hotel, life’s a game as you work it out on the sunny grounds.

Have a little taste of home

A stay at the Mount Nelson couldn’t be considered complete without sampling its afternoon tea at least once. Dine on delicate roast beef or egg mayo finger sandwiches or skip the savoury altogether and tuck straight into the freshly baked scones with clotted cream and freshly jarred jam. Considered one of the best venues for tea in the Cape, this hotel offers a South African twist to the traditional delicacy with a melt-in-the-mouth melktert (milk tart) and local teas.

Offering signature treatments, created with the idea of achieving total wellbeing, this blissful experience is sure to enhance your glow, using skincare products from Kalahari and Africology.
