Posted by Anita Froneman on 9 October 2020

South Africa features 19 times on Condé Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards of the 30 Best Hotels in Africa for 2020.

This is the 33th annual Readers’ Choice Awards and the first year that readers had to vote during a time when no one was travelling.

‘But this year, your vote counts more than ever. Voting for a hotel you love or an island where you’ve had the happiest holiday is a way to show your appreciation for the places you can’t wait to get back to,’ the website reads.

The Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa came in at number 21

‘So the names in this year’s edition are the ones that brought you comfort, that you still connected with long afterward, that got you through the months without travel. These are the enduring gems that can withstand the test of time and the vicissitudes of circumstances. So while it is always an honor to be on this list, in this strangest of years it is a special honor, indeed.

‘Many readers have told us that when we emerge from this pandemic, they want to turn their attention to the classics, whether that means personal favorites or places they know have brought joy to others. If that sounds like you, consider these lists a jumping-off point for what’s next.’

The number one spot was claimed by the Royal Mansour Marrakech in Marrakech, Morocco.
