6 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

Less than an hour from Cape Town, in the Drakenstein valley in South Africa’s Cape Winelands, this eighteenth-century farm estate has been rebuilt in a reproduction Cape Dutch style and rehabilitated into a top-flight spa retreat. Though it’s just outside the town of Paarl, and within easy reach of Cape Town, make no mistake — Grande Roche is a rural escape, a self-contained hideaway.

Of course that doesn’t mean you’re roughing it. Rooms are cosmopolitan and contemporary rather than faux-rustic, and the views would be impossible in the city — most rooms have private terraces, and the vistas of the Winelands are spectacular indeed: manicured gardens, picturesque vineyards, and the imposing Drakenstein mountains. The restaurant, Bosman’s, is the equal of many a big-city fine-dining establishment, seating 80 in the smartly renovated space of the estate’s original manor house. It’s a favorite of wine connoisseurs, with an award-winning wine list including some three hundred vintage wines, and a cigar club run by a local expert.

Service throughout the restaurant and the hotel is urbane and professional, with hardly a trace of country laxity. All in all, it’s nothing shocking, nothing avant-garde: just a modern classic, all the best of old-world luxury hospitality, in a splendid, idyllic location.

How to get there:

Grande Roche Hotel is approximately a 40 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport.
