Traveling to Cape Town soon? If so, Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, located in the shadow of Table Mountain, has recently reopened its Helmsley Wing and Garden Cottages after a redesign. The new looks were created by the design team Champalimaud. The Helmsley Wing is decorated in earthy tones with dark windows and doors, while the cottages have a blue and cream color scheme.
The 484-square-foot Helmsley Suites are located a short walk away from The Cottage Pool and pay homage to the Cape-Dutch presence. The rooms have hardwood floors and geometric patterns. Guests looking for a private setting (or a romantic setting) should opt to stay in a Garden Cottage. Each cottage is 538 square feet, and the eight garden cottages share a secluded pool. Every cottage sits behind a rose garden and is surrounded by a picket fence, adding privacy. On the inside there is a separate living and dining area, as well as a mini-library and enclosed patio.
For those traveling with a family, the Classic Suite is a good fit. With an open lounge, kitchenette, a walk-in dressing room, and a private balcony, there is plenty of space for everyone.
When it’s time for dinner guests can head to Planet Restaurant and Planet Bar. These chic eateries have a galaxy theme, which can be seen in touches like the planetary chandelier and the twinkling ceiling. Another unique dining experience is the Chef’s Table. In an alcove in the hotel kitchen guests can watch the chefs create the dishes and discuss the recipe. Room service is also available.
