Cape Town is South Africa’s most charming, most alluring and some will say most visited city. In my opinion, few urban centers anywhere can match its backdrop along the colossal Cape Peninsula back, which veers into the Atlantic Ocean. The most eye-catching and solid core of Cape Town is table mountain, which I was amazed to see was frequently camouflaged by clouds, dividing the city into distinct zones.
I had the pleasure of staying at one of South Africa’s magnificent dames, the Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel. This striking property has welcomed guests – including John Lennon the Dalai Lama and Agatha Christie – to its 201 rooms and suites since 1899. The architecture, which is a Colonial-era along with its interiors provide a sense of pleasingly graceful grandeur, and the Librasia Spa rooms definitely remind you they are in the 21st century.
Troy Alexander Project was a guest and realized to appreciate Cape Town, we had to spend time outdoors, as Capetonians do. Here are a collection of images to share the story.
