IGLTA Annual Global Convention Learn More
The Royal Portfolio started in 1999 when Liz and Phil Biden decided to open up their holiday home in the African bush for all to enjoy. Liz loves to share beautiful things you see. And that ethos resonates throughout The Royal Portfolio properties where guests are considered part of the family. That holiday home in the bush is now the Royal Malewane. Birkenhead House in Hermanus and La Residence in Franschhoek soon joined the portfolio offering coastal and vineyard experiences to complement the private safari experience at Royal Malewane. The Bidens have always wanted to open a hotel in their home city of Cape Town, in 2017 The Silo completed the circuit of quintessentially South African experiences showcasing the art and culture of Cape Town above Zeitz MOCAA in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.
