Babylonstoren Farm Hotel

Sustainable country living meets cutting edge style at Babylonstoren, a beautiful working farm and wine estate in South Africa’s Cape Winelands. The restored Cape Dutch farm buildings of the historic estate have been stylishly converted into immaculate guest suites and cottages with thick whitewashed walls and thatched roofs shaded by mature oak trees. An excellent restaurant, a professional spa and five star service are all you’d expect of a top hotel, but what makes Babylonstoren special is the whole farm experience and the stunning gardens dotted with pergolas of roses and fruit trees, where all the estate’s produce is organically grown.

Guests can stroll out from their cottage and pick oranges warm from the sun, take the Garden tour and learn all about the planting combinations, seeing how the fruit and vegetables they’ll be eating at breakfast, lunch and dinner were grown. There are wine-tastings, cellar tours and a restored farm reservoir to swim in, as well as the jacuzzi pool at the spa to relax in after a soothing treatment with Africology products.

The cottages and studios are decorated with a clean contemporary feel, occasional antique pieces blend with modern chic to light and airy effect.  A roaring log fire heats the space in winter and there are plenty of quirky decorative touches, as well as practical details such as umbrellas and gumboots for winter garden visits. Large en-suite bathrooms have old fashioned claw foot bathtubs and separate glass showers. Studios are spacious with a comfortable lounge area, and the cottages add even more space with their own kitchens and bookshelves filled with interesting reads.

The farm’s Babel restaurant uses produce freshly picked from the gardens to produce wonderfully tasty meals, three course feasts that showcase just what can be done when the ingredients are the best. Breads, cheeses and charcuterie are produced on-site and you are welcome to watch or help in the bakery, just as you are in the gardens, where you might find yourself with gifts of seedlings or cuttings to plant.

Babylonstoren combines authentic farm experience with five star luxury in a magical way that refreshes and reconnects the soul.
