SStepping into the Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa in the energetic heart of Cape Town is like being greeted by an elegant and stylish grandfather – albeit one who boasts impeccable taste in contemporary art.
Sprightly, with a twinkle in his eye and a penchant for boldly patterned silk shirts, he is the sort of man who tears down conformism and the unbearable stiffness of traditional suiting. He is a solid man, with a sensitive allure. He collects curios and still knows how to throw fabulous parties for the younger generation.
His energy is sumptuous, welcoming and charming.
Befitting its namesake, it’s safe to say that this iconic hotel is a lot like Nelson Mandela.
