Started in 1999 by Liz and Phil Biden, The Royal Portfolio is a collection of exclusive hotels, lodges and private residences located in iconic destinations across South Africa. The Royal Portfolio is a family owned and run business where guests feel a sense of familiarity and comfort. Each hotel is unique and each experience is authentic.

Since first opening Royal Malewane in 2000, the vision of the Biden family has been to give guests a complete experience and a perfect stay.

The opening of The Silo Hotel enabled The Royal Portfolio to offer guests a unique journey across a portfolio of quintessentially South African experiences including a Big 5 safari in the Greater Kruger National Park, a gourmet safari in the Cape Winelands, a coastal experience in Hermanus and the natural wonder, art and culture of Cape Town.

The Silo Hotel 
The Silo Hotel is a celebration of art, style, architecture, and design. A tribute to timeless glamour and contemporary luxury. This magical hotel towers above the V&A Waterfront and is surrounded by the natural wonder of South Africa’s Mother City.

The Silo has been built in the grain elevator portion of the historic grain silo complex occupying six floors above Zeitz MOCAA (Museum of Contemporary Art Africa). Zeitz MOCAA houses Africa’s largest collection of contemporary African art.

The exterior of the building was designed by Thomas Heatherwick, Founder and Principal of the London-based Heatherwick Studio. From the outside, the greatest visible change to the building’s original structure is the addition of the ingenious glass windows inserted into the geometry of the hotel floors. These multi-faceted windows bulge outward as if gently inflated. By night, this transforms the building into a glowing beacon in the Table Bay harbour.
