We’ve been voted by Travel & Leisure as one of the Top Lodges and Resorts in Africa and the Middle East for 2013! Coming in at number 14, it’s a huge honour and we’re very thankful to everyone who gave us the nod! See the results here.
Here’s what they had to say about us:
“Surrounded by blooming rose and jasmine gardens—as well as stunning Cape Winelands scenery—this Relais & Châteaux property practically begs for thrown-open windows and romantic strolls. Twenty-one luxurious rooms are set in Victorian-style structures surrounding a central courtyard and an oval swimming pool with teak loungers. Top South African chef Margot Janse oversees both on-site restaurants: the dressy Tasting Room with its daily tasting menus and the more casual Common Room tapas restaurant. Kids are well looked after here; before arrival, their rooms are stocked with age-appropriate books, DVDs, and fun bath amenities like kid-size bathrobes and bath capsules that expand into African animal sponges.
Room to Book: Rooms 17 and 19 (Pool Suites) are the best bet for families thanks to the private pools and gardens, two baths each, and loft-style bedrooms with twin beds and stuffed animals upstairs.
Insider Tip: Eating alfresco is a must in this scenic setting, so stop for picnic fixings—like freshly baked bread and fabulous homemade charcuterie—at Bread & Wine, LQF’s sister restaurant set idyllically among vineyards and lemon orchards on Môreson wine farm.”
