The Silo, Cape Town, South Africa (member of The Royal Portfolio)

The Silo’s dazzling concrete and metal structure, bejewelled with geometric glass windows curving outwards, is an architectural delight; its façade beautifully designed by Thomas Heatherwicke. The Silo (a former 1920’s grain silo) is a new 5* hotel located above the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (spectacular – a must visit), enjoying inspiring views over Cape Town and Table Mountain. It is the highest building on the V&A Waterfront, with some of Cape Town’s finest restaurants and shops within easy walking distance and the ferry out to Robben Island only a few minutes away.

Alfajiri, Kenya

Alfajiri's Cliff Villa overlooks uninterrupted azure waters off the Kenyan coast. An oasis of calm, the luxury villa is spectacular to behold; spacious and airy with a raised thatched roof providing shade across an inviting veranda that leads out to a swimming pool right on the beach, where you’re just steps from the Indian Ocean.

Every time I explore a new destination, whether it’s on an adventure holiday in Peru or a luxury beach escape in the Indian Ocean, I return home full of excitement to share the amazing sights I have seen. Through my own experiences I have developed a love of helping others experience the great wonders of the world; truly getting under the skin of the extraordinary destinations that are at your fingertips. Getting the details right, from which hotel is perfectly located for exploring away from the crowds, to which local guide is most knowledgeable on history or culture or art, is of paramount importance to me. I am constantly seeking out new and exciting experiences and exploring off the beaten track to ensure my clients are receiving the best and most honest first-hand advice.
