Hotels, Eco Escapes & Lifestyle Resorts | Unearthing the Exceptional
Port Elizabeth, at the tail end of South Africa’s Garden Route, may be better known for its surf and sunshine than its artistic pedigree, but the city is in fact home to the country’s largest collection of Art Deco buildings.
Yet it took turning one of them into the splendid No5 Boutique Art Hotel to really showcase PE’s artistic potential. With its sleek façade and eclectic interiors, this luxury boutique masterpiece looks as if it would be more at home in Hollywood than steps away from the Indian Ocean, and one can almost imagine a glossy starlet or two sipping martinis on a red velvet barstool in the Salon Privè, or taking a dip in the lap pool.
No5 by Mantis offers ten exquisite suites, with clean lines, bold prints and a selection of contemporary South African art.
Secluded balconies look out over manicured gardens, while in-room facilities include a flat-screen TV and DVD player, mini-bar, and business unit with WiFi.
Room service dining is available, although it’s worth a trip downstairs to the Jazz Room, for South African fusion dining, or to the lounge for tea and French champagne.
There’s even a small cinema, modelled on the one in Prince Charles’ Clarence House residence, where guests can enjoy a film screening in absolute comfort and privacy.
The tranquil surroundings have inspired the plush interiors designed for guests who expect nothing but the best. Seven exquisite suites, all masterpieces of comfort and opulence, are equipped with business units to keep guests connected with the world. Relax in your lounge with a selection of beverages from your private bar or freshly brewed coffee. In-room dining options allow for a personal five-star meal. Beautifully appointed double bathrooms will further enhance your experience.
All suites can accommodate a maximum of 2 adults sharing with 2 children, subject to availability of suites with sleeper couch
