Babylonstoren is one of South Africa’s oldest properties, dating back to 1692, but guests shouldn’t be concerned that the property isn’t in-keeping with contemporary style and impeccable standards of modern hospitality because this charming farm-style boutique hotel excels in both respects. Located in South Africa’s beloved Cape Dutch, Babylonstoren boasts 200 hectares of working farm to explore with a formal garden of 3.5 hectares (8 acres) at the very heart of this exceptional and unforgettable hotel. The garden is divided into 15 sections that comprise fruit, vegetables, berries, bees for pollinating, indigenous plants, fragrant lawns, a prickly pear maze, ducks and chickens, and more. Every aspect of Babylonstoren – including the contemporary Farm Hotel & Spa, the Farm Shop and Bakery – is influenced by the ever-changing, life-giving diversity of the garden. Guests will dine on fresh flavours, grown and gathered on-site, and experience a delicious range of deli-style dining that reflects Babylonstoren’s wholesome living philosophy. The emphasis on wellness extends to The Garden Spa, where guests can enjoy an invigorating range of treatments in a calming and tranquil setting. Guests can access Babylonstoren’s private man-made beach, via a specially designed bamboo-lined walkway, designed to encourage private reflection in a meditative space. Babylonstoren’s location is ideal for guests wishing to explore South Africa’s renowned wine regions, with Paarl and Franschhoek wineries within easy reach. Furthermore, Babylonstoren showcases a sought-after collection of signature wines, produced by the hotel’s own cellarmaster and his team. These labels are available for tasting daily in the Tasting Room, whilst tours of the specially designed 17th Century wine cellar are also available. Babylonstoren’s stylish accommodation combines rustic chic with sophisticated Dutch simplicity, rooms are spacious and homely; the ideal setting to relax and unwind after a day’s exploring.
