New Suites & Cottages at Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

The iconic Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel, an oasis in the heart of vibrant Cape Town, has recently reopened its historic Helmsley Wing Suites and the much-loved Garden Cottages after a redesignby interior design firm Champalimaud.

Maintaining an appealing balance of luxurious living combined with warm, earthy tones, the spacious Helmsley suites at the top of Palm Avenue and the Garden Cottages with their attractive poolside setting have been designed to emulate the city’s Cape Dutch heritage, against the backdrop of Table Mountain.

The poolside Cottages were designed to feel like a private home within a resort, with a fresh, Victorian eye reflected through a palette of creams and blues. Each individual suite within the Helmsley Wing pays homage to its historical Cape-Dutch presence, with herringbone hardwood floors, geometric drapery and rugs, a camel base and crown trim and dark chocolate doors and windows. Many of the artworks are by local contemporary artist Kurt Pio.

Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is Cape Town’s legendary hotel, having hosted the “who’s who” of international royalty, politicians, celebrities, and the jet set, and is regarded as one of the most notable and recognisable hotels in the world. Since the hotel originally opened in 1899, the “Nellie,” as locals endearingly call it, has been symbolic of traditional South African hospitality and a classic example of the great age of grand hotels.

For an unsurpassed experience at The Nellie, ask for a Champalimaud designed Helmsley Wing room or a Garden Cottage – where privacy is the new luxury and pleasure is pure peace and serenity.
