Garden Route, South Africa
The distinctive scent of Indian Ocean waves greets you at No 5 Boutique Art Hotel. Barely a minute’s walk from the beach, this luxurious five-star hotel is perfect for combining the best of the coast and the city.
We love the location; just ten minutes drive to the airport in the upmarket suburb of Summerstrand. It’s ideal for a relaxed two or three days, yet also an excellent choice for uncovering Port Elizabeth’s heritage.
We’ve always been impressed by hotels managed by the Mantis Group and No 5 is no exception. The hospitality blends traditional Africa with contemporary Western ideas, a fusion that’s fall of warmth and individuality: it’s refreshing to be at a hotel where every member of staff knows your name.
Ten exquisite suites are carefully spaced, each of them individually decorated and designed. All of these showcase a new-world African style, full of elegance and bright colours. The hotel’s Champagne Lounge opens out onto a shaded terrace and swimming pool, two more places to wind away the evening after an afternoon at the beach. There’s also a fabulous spa and the very creative Jazz Room restaurant.
Most people only stop in Port Elizabeth for one or two nights. No 5 Boutique Art Hotel is a place that will encourage you to stay longer. But even if you’re just overnighting before flying out, you’ll never forget the hotel’s flair and style.
