Delaire Graff Lodge & Spa is situated within the Delaire Graff Wine Estate, on the highest crest of the magnificent Helshoogte Mountain Pass, just 9 kilometres from Stellenbosch. This leading boutique hotel and restaurant opened its doors in April 2010 and is set within Keith Kirsten designed indigenous gardens, complete with life size brass sculptures. The main building welcomes you through huge brass doors, to the Asian influenced reception, lounge and restaurant using natural renewable materials of stone and wood. Seasonal inspired menus produce fine food, which is enjoyed within the spacious, Yin-Yang flow of the restaurant, or out on the terrace under the oak trees, with breathtaking views of the Stellenbosch valley and surrounding mountains. Each of the 10 lodges (suites) is completely private, with curved hedges providing natural seclusion. They are perfectly positioned to maximize the views and are a short walk or golf cart ride away from the main lodge. Each lodge features double volume ceilings with exposed timber trusses and custom designed furniture in light shades. All are fitted with flat screen satellite TVs, iPod docking stations, wireless internet access, complimentary mini bars and fresh fruit daily. The bedrooms are warmed by luxurious floor rugs and offer plenty of space for extra beds. There is a choice of duvets and a thorough pillow menu for the twin or king beds, and the en-suite marble bathrooms boast locally produced organic amenities, oversized bath tubs and showers. The separate sitting areas have cool flooring and open out to private deck areas with heated infinity pools. Enjoy the services of your own personal butler and make use of the complimentary private transport to Stellenbosch, which is available at your request. Treat yourself to some pampering at the full-service spa and gymnasium and round your days off with sunset bubbles and canapes served in your lodge.
