Cape Town once again placed Fourth Top City in the World and the World's Top City in Africa and the Middle East in Travel + Leisure's World’s Best Awards.

As in previous years, Travel + Leisure readers rated their best travel providers as per a questionnaire developed by the editors of Travel + Leisure magazine.

Five Cape Town hotels also featured on the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards list.

The Cape Grace was honoured as the 26th Top Hotel in the World, up from number 44 in 2012. For this reason the hotel has also been included in Travel + Leisure’s Hall of Fame.

In the category “Top City Hotels in Africa and the Middle East” Cape Grace also came out tops, the Mount Nelson Hotel came in at number six, the Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa was tenth, the One & Only Cape Town was named eleventh and the Victoria & Alfred Hotel was named thirteenth Top City Hotel in Africa and the Middle East.

CEO of Cape Town Tourism, Mariëtte du Toit-Helmbold noted that a number of the World’s Best Hotel spots were claimed by premium South African safari lodges; “The prevalence of these exclusive hotels bodes well for the luxury market in Cape Town as many high-end safari travellers include a trip to Cape Town on their itinerary. The fact that they continue their journey in Cape Town in some of the world’s best hotels means Cape Town remains firmly on the luxury travel map.”
