A NEW ERA
The Delaire Graff Lodges & Spa is welcoming an expansion of our luxurious accommodations in December 2018
Delaire Graff Lodges & Spa is one of the most striking hospitality destinations in the Cape Winelands. Nestled amidst manicured gardens, the venue exudes a calming atmosphere, adorned with carefully chosen artworks, brimming bouquets and elegant water features. One of the most extravagant ways to enjoy this space is through soaking up the sumptuous offerings at the newly-refurbished Delaire Graff Spa. Situated in an atmosphere of the utmost luxury and peace, the Spa contains four tawny-hued suites, awash with natural light. Each treatment on offer combines natural elements and innovative techniques, carried out by experienced therapists. They are complemented with globally renowned products such as Swiss Perfection, a customisable collection that promotes rejuvenation, or the refined essential oils and botanics of Aromatherapy Associates, and an organic skincare range from Terres d’Afrique that evokes Africa’s earthfullness.
After an extravagant spa experience, there can be no nicer way to spend an afternoon than wandering idly around the atmospheric infinity pool, or soaking up the sun on a lounger in blissful tranquillity. From there, restore your health fully with a meal at Indochine, the signature restaurant of the Lodges & Spa. Incorporating Asian inspiration, the dining experience utilises vibrant and healthy ingredients, sourced directly from the Estate’s garden, inspiring radiant wellness.
The Spa provides the ideal way to restore both body and mind for the ultimate day of bliss, while the Lodges offer an unsurpassed atmosphere for after-spa relaxation. Combining airy, light interiors with the finest in luxury offerings, the Lodges are immaculately turned out. Slatted wooden doors open towards a relaxing plunge pool, looking onto a garden or over the vineyards.
All of this is to be expanded upon in the coming year with the addition of six Superior Lodges and a breath-taking Owner’s Villa, offering guests more opportunity to enjoy the luminous beauty of Delaire Graff Estate. These new Lodges will feature unrestricted views of the vineyards and mountains. The centrepiece will be the new four-bedroom Villa, the largest available accommodations on the property. It has been constructed to meet the diverse demands of guests arriving from all over the world, and accommodating multigenerational travellers. It boasts a 14-metre heated swimming pool, Jacuzzis, an entertainment centre and an expansive view of the Stellenbosch Valley and majestic mountain range beyond.
The Estate’s architectural masters dhk Architects, and interior design innovators David Collins Studio, have expanded upon the current look and feel, accentuated with touches of Cape Dutch architecture by utilising local materials such as grass papers, end-grain flooring, polished plasters, hand-woven rugs and textured leathers into the design. Guests of these exclusive new Lodges will enjoy all the benefits current visitors savour, from the private Lodge bar and cinema, to the sumptuous Spa, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and the gourmet Asian-inspired restaurant, Indochine. However one chooses to spend time here, it will be in the atmosphere of the utmost refinement.
