Liz and her husband Phil started The Royal Portfolio in December 1999 with one goal - 'To Give Guests A Complete Experience And A Perfect Stay'.

20 years on and Liz is now at the helm of four of the most glamourous luxury boutique hotels in the world. Royal Malewane, Birkenhead House, La Residence and The Silo Hotel have attracted many of the world’s most discerning and distinguished travellers including many celebrity guests.

The Royal Portfolio has garnered a host of international hospitality awards – acclaimed for their style, design, service, spectacular locations and business ethos.

Liz loves to pamper her guests, creating beautiful spaces with a touch of magic - giving guests permission to put the everyday on hold, even just for a weekend.

A Perfect Stay tells a visual story of the Biden family and of The Royal Portfolio - showcasing the extraordinary creativity and style of Liz Biden. Minimalism is in short supply in The Royal Portfolio hotels. Liz’s interiors are rich, colourful, eclectic and playful – always comfortable – and utterly unique.

A Perfect Stay includes a glimpse inside the Biden family’s private homes.

A Message From Liz Biden

South Africa's international borders are open for all international travel. Travellers require a certified, negative test result taken within 72 hours from the time of departure.

Birkenhead House, La Residence, Royal Malewane and The Silo Hotel are open and we are delighted to welcome guests from near and far to our hotels and lodges which offer the perfect tonic to the pandemic. We have taken every precaution to keep our guests and staff safe. Our hotels and lodges comply with the strictest TBCSA and WHO hygiene protocols and provide ample space for social distancing. South Africa has one of the best private healthcare systems in the world.

The Royal Portfolio Foundation remains committed to supporting numerous conservation and community projects including our counter-poaching initiatives and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes.

I would like to wish all our wonderful guests, staff, industry colleagues and suppliers a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021 - we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this year as we overcome the challenges of the pandemic. To celebrate the new year we are offering guests the opportunity to spend 6 nights at any of our properties and only pay for 5 until 31 May 2021.
