The top 25 hotels in South Africa

TripAdvisor has released the hotel category winners in their 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards – which means they’ve also released the top hotels in South Africa.

Unfortunately none of SA’s hotels made it into the world’s top 25, but we still boast exceptional hotels locally.

The top 25 hotels in South Africa are determined based on reviews from TripAdvisor users – both local and international.

So which hotel was named the best hotel in South Africa? That prestigious title went to The Oyster Box, a five-star luxury hotel in Umhlanga Rocks.

Second place went to the Kapama River Lodge, while third place went to the Cape Grace in Cape Town.

While Cape Town usually dominates these types of rankings, there were a variety of destinations which had winners in the lists.

These locations include Johannesburg, Port Alfred, Graaff-Reinet and Magaliesburg.

The list also has accommodation for every taste, from luxury boutique hotels with no more than 25 rooms, to huge upmarket hotels with over 200 rooms.
