Mount Nelson, a Belmond Hotel

Cape Town, South Africa

Why You Will Love It

An oasis tucked in the middle of bustling Cape Town, the Mount Nelson is a quiet, luxurious hideaway nestled at the foot of Table Mountain. Nicknamed “The Pink Lady” due to the hotel’s pastel hues, the hotel is the oldest in Cape Town, but recently underwent major renovations, and has never looked better. The rooms, suites, and garden cottages are all individually designed and offer the upmost in privacy.

Defining Factor

The outdoor spaces! From sprawling gardens {the resort boasts NINE acres of landscaped gardens!}, tennis courts, and 2 heated swimming pools the Mount Nelson has an authentic resort feel that cannot be found anywhere else in Cape Town.
