Great Accomodations near Cape Town
In Cape Town itself one finds the aptly named Vineyard Hotel and Spa. Close enough to downtown Cape Town to be convenient to all, but outside the busy city center, the Vineyard Hotel and Spa offers luxury accommodations in the shadow of Table Mountain, Cape Town’s iconic backdrop.
Steenberg is not only a winery with a lovely Sauvignon Blanc (and, in fact, the oldest farm in the Constantia Valley), but it is also home to a quaint, intimate, modern hotel. With only 21 guest rooms and 3 suites, you can be sure that while you stay in the Constantia Valley, locally referred to as Cape Town’s Vineyard, you will be well looked after.
The Zorgvliet Vineyard Lodge and Spa is located among the vines of a historic Stellenbosch farm. The lucky guests in the Lodge’s six luxury rooms not only enjoy stunning views over the vineyard and on to Simonsberg Mountain, but they only have to walk on down to the winery to indulge in a cellar tour, wine tasting, or picnic among the vines.
Built in 2000, the Spier hotel is part of the group that also includes the Spier and Savanha winery properties. Spiers agricultural bounty does not end there: With some 750 acres devoted to biodynamic farming, Spier is a fabulous place to experience the farm-fresh table. The hotel’s restaurant, Eight, is committed to featuring these organically-raised products. Each element of the Spier hotel experience brings this holistic philosophy into focus, whether it’s encountering eagles, cheetahs, or the timeless traditions of South Africa.
