4. Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel - Cape Town, South Africa

This luxurious gem is nestled right in the nook of the bustling city's heart and it offers guests an authentic Cape cultural experience. The hotel was painted in its signature pink back in 1918 to signify 'peace'. You can be sure to grab some insta-worthy shots of the surrounding area during a painting masterclass or simply kick back to relax at the hotel's luxury spa. 

Cape Town, affectionately dubbed 'The Mother City', is one of SA's three capital cities and is notorious for capturing the hearts of all who tread its streets and rough landscapes. From stunning mountains, like the world wonder of Table Mountain to Lion's Head, that emerge from its earth to gorgeous harbours that many creatures from seals to whales favour, the city is a beauty in every right.

This iconic and luxury hotel sits snugly along the lip of the legendary river Nile. You can be sure to enjoy incredible views while sitting and sipping back in their buzzing rooftop bar or while lapping it out in their Olympic-sized swimming pool.
