Travel + Leisure Magazine Announces Top 500 Hotels in the World

by TableBayer on

Travel + Leisure magazine has released their 2012 list of the 500 best hotels in the world. This is always a highly anticipated event as the rankings are determined by magazine’s reader’s votes.

Sun International’s Royal Livingstone Hotel in Zambia has once again made the grade and The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town has made the newcomers list. The number of high-scoring hotels in Africa also increased this year, with nine hotels in the top 25 and 45 properties overall.

Travel and leisure mentioned the following: The Table Bay Hotel recognised as the best address in Cape Town, rises eight stories above ships and fisheries at the V&A Waterfront. The hotel has picture-perfect harbour views and direct access to waterfront shops and restaurants. Occupying a modern gabled building, the hotel sits on the site of an 1869 stone breakwater wall, which has been incorporated into the architecture.

Public rooms have a maritime theme, and the most inviting is the Lounge, with its high open-trussed ceiling and expansive atrium window beautifully framing a view of Table Mountain. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy decadent afternoon tea.
