5 Luxury SA Hotels the Royal Baby may sleep at first

Lion King

It’s a boy! So keep calm and carry on but not before you’ve checked out our pick of the 5 hotels that are fit for England’s newest Prince and third in line to the throne (Sho’t left Hazza).

Oyster Box Durban

The steadfast ambassador of charming colonial accommodations in Durban is no stranger to royalty having hosted Gramps and Nan (Charles & Camilla) as well as our own Princess Charlene and hubby in 2011.

With its long list of monarchial guests it seems the Oyster Box Hotel in humble ol Durban is certainly fit for a Prince, PLUS they have the Kids Holiday Club – Equipped with a range of games and activities, little princes can cavort to their heart’s content while older Monarchs can indulge in all The Oyster Box has to offer.

One & Only Cape Town

Having hosted the likes of Bieber in recent years Sol Kerzner’s One & Only is already fit for a Pop Prince (ss) but I digress.

In recent years the One & Only has become as famous as its A-List guests for its sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and a penthouse suite that lists for a rumoured five figures per night!

Saxon Boutique Hotel Johannesburg

With a name taken from the Prince’s forefathers it’s a venue fit for Highnesses and Heirs. The Saxon in Johannesburg is a five-star hotel with its own art collection though we doubt that’ll interest the little nipper. But we bet their “one child under 2 years stays free of charge” offer will put a smile on his dial.

Lost City North West

Well it is a palace. And a fake Charles and Wills did visit in Leon Schuster’s There’s a Zulu on my Stoep (1993).

In any case, we’re certain Wills Windsor Jnr will love getting to grips with the Palace’s abundant offering in the children’s activities and entertainment stakes.

Set in the heart of the Sabi Sand reserve on the border of the Kruger National Park in South Africa, Ulusaba is Sir Richard Branson’s private game reserve and a favourite retreat for Uncle Harry when he needs some timeout after naughty weekends in Vegas. Ulusaba offers baby the chance to get in touch with nature from an early age and follow in the footsteps of his charitable relatives.

Whether the royal newbie takes up temporary residence at any of the luxury South African hotels listed above is anyone’s guess.

And while we’re on the subject of guessing I have to add – Britain this is your chance to outshine the USA by not naming the baby after a fruit, plant, or direction. We wait with bated breath…

Have something to say...
