“100 Years In The Pink”, Belmond Mount Nelson Celebrates Its Centenary

Known as the Pink Lady of Cape Town, the Belmond Mount Nelson was given its rosy hue to mark the end of World War 1. Throughout its centenary year beginning 10 November 2018, #BelmondTouchofPink experiences will be on offer throughout the hotel. These include rose-infused teas, cocktails and spa treatments. Guests may also opt to savour the sweet taste of rosé on a tour of nearby vineyards by classic car. A specially curated art exhibition will also raise funds for breast cancer awareness.

Alternatively, experience the heart and soul of Belmond Mount Nelson at its famous Tea Lounge. This year’s Afternoon Tea menu features delicacies such as wild berry tea Turkish delight, raspberry-filled white truffles, pink macarons, strawberry meringues and coconut ice, pink pavlova and pink filled eclairs.  The Mount Nelson tea is an exclusive blend of six international teas from Africa and Asia, flavoured with buds and petals of the signature Mount Nelson pink rose.

The hotel’s most celebrated guests have included Queen Elizabeth II who celebrated her 21st Birthday in the grounds and John Lennon, who surprised guests by meditating in the gardens under a tree; to President Nelson Mandela who welcomed world leaders for the first World Economic Forum held on African soil; and the Dalai Lama enlightened over 500 Capetonians who sat cross-legged on the floor in the Ballroom.
