Apart from the wonderful community upliftment organisations The Silo supports, we are also committed to the following ongoing sustainability initiatives:

STIMULATING LOCAL BUSINESSES

  • We source the freshest ingredients from local suppliers of fruit, vegetables, baked goods, dairy, freshwater salmon and trout, wines, and a variety of handmade chocolate treats. These suppliers are all local, small-scale operations that in turn support their immediate communities.
  • We have an incredible array of local artists on display throughout the hotel.
  • We empower local entrepreneurs through outsourced services and suppliers.
  • Our furniture and finishings throughout the hotel are sourced locally.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

  • We use energy-saving light bulbs.
  • All showerheads have been replaced with certified water-saving attachments.
  • We have removed all plastic bottles and straws.
  • Succulents and astroturf are used on our rooftop to minimise water use.
  • Restrictors have been fitted to all water outlets.
  • Disposable napkins reduce laundry water consumption.
  • Ice bucket water is reused for cleaning.
  • Double glazed windows throughout the hotel means we use less energy for insulation.
  • The air conditioning system utilises the central sea water cooling plant, reducing energy and water consumption.

TRAINING

  • We provide training and internship programmes for students from local colleges and academies.

STAFF TRAINING & WELFARE

  • We provide continuous training for staff members through various health & safety, first aid, fire safety, inter-department, inter-company, study assistance, business coaching, and purpose & value initiatives.
  • We provide access for staff members to have an annual health check-up and contribute to every staff members’ Medical Aid.
  • All Silo staff get the opportunity to regularly visit our other properties (La Residence – Franschoek, Birkenhead House in Hermanus and occasionally, Royal Malewane in The Kruger National Park) for lunch/dinner and/or overnight stays.

A Message From Liz Biden

South Africa's international borders are now open for leisure travel from medium and low-risk countries and for business travel from high-risk countries with a valid business travel permit. The list of high-risk countries will be updated every two weeks. Travellers require a certified, negative test result taken within 72 hours from the time of departure. Travel insurance is mandatory.

Birkenhead House, La Residence and Royal Malewane are all open and we look forward to welcoming international visitors back to our beautiful country. The Silo Hotel will reopen on Monday 23 November 2020.

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. Please visit the South African government's dedicated Covid-19 portal for the latest South African information.

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.

We look forward to welcoming our wonderful guests from near and far.

Our Reservations Team is available to assist with any enquiries Mon – Fri | 8am to 5pm (GMT +2).
