Delaire Graff Estate, Cape Winelands

The most exciting modern hotel in the Cape, the Delaire Graff Lodges and Spa lies on the highest crest along the magnificent Helshoogte mountain pass, with sweeping views over Stellenbosch, its leading wine district.


With sumptuous interiors, beautiful grounds and an art collection personally selected by Laurence Graff OBE, the Delaire Graff Lodges and Spa offers one of the world’s most exceptional art, design, spa, cuisine and wine experiences in a natural setting.


Its ten lodges have breathtaking views, and each boasts a private sun deck with heated plunge pool, butler service and South African art. The main lodge has a private cinema, a wine tasting room and a state-of-the-art spa and gym. A member of Relais & Châteaux, three excellent dining choices include a very stylish contemporary main restaurant, a gourmet Asian, Indochine and private dining in your lodge.

Susie suggests:

  • Guided tours of South Africa’s premier vineyards can be arranged with wine tasting, and you can walk across the road and visit Tokara Wine Estate.
  • Get a rare and exclusive glimpse into Nelson Mandela’s final years of incarceration on an excursion to Victor Vorster Prison. Look out for the lemon tree he planted during his final years of imprisonment.
  • Take a half day visit to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa whose buildings date back to the 19th Century, and the heart of the African Republic.
