The Western Cape has come out with top honours in the Condé Nast Readers Choice Awards. An incredible 19 hotels in South Africa have been named among the best in Africa in the 30 Best Hotels in Africa for 2020 list, with 17 hotels coming from the Western Cape alone.

Condé Nast Traveler readers rated their top hotels in Africa, from Cape Town to Marrakech. For the 33rd edition of the Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards, readers picked the winners for the very first time.

“Our 33rd Readers’ Choice Awards represent the first time that you, the voters, made your picks when almost no one was traveling. So the names in this year’s edition are the ones that brought you comfort, that you still connected with long afterward, that got you through the months without travel. These are the enduring gems that can withstand the test of time and the vicissitudes of circumstances,” Condé Nast said.

Here are the winners from the Western Cape:
The Silo Hotel in Cape Town at number 19
Birkenhead House in Hermanus at number 20
Cape Grace in Cape Town at number 25
Tintswalo Atlantic in Cape Town at number 26
The Marine in Hermanus at number 28
Taj Cape Town in Cape Town at number 30
