The world’s first extreme hotel

Extreme Hotel Cape Town

cliff hanger, cape townCape Town magazine: “The 130-room hotel in Cape Town’s city centre boasts stunning views of Table Mountain and features a five-storey climbing wall on the exterior of the hotel.

The hotel’s swimming pool has been designed to look like an aquarium: The swimming pool is adjacent to the 30mm thick glass windows of the hotel’s restaurant, giving diners an underwater view of swimmers.

The men’s urinals appear to be suspended on scaffolding at the edge of the building while the inside of the hotel’s elevator simulates being inside a shark cage (thanks to life-size floor-to-ceiling photography).

Rooms will cost a standard R615 (£45) a night and include free broadband internet access.”
