Experience South Africa’s wonderful Cape Winelands at their most sophisticated, at the outstanding Delaire Graff Lodges and Spa. Opened in 2009, this exceptional countryside hideaway is owned by Laurence Graff, the acclaimed jeweller and founder of Graff Diamonds, who is said to have handled more diamonds of notable rarity and beauty than any other expert within the trade. Nestled between the majestic mountains, and overlooking the beautiful vineyards of Stellenbosch, the interiors of this luxury boutique hotel are just as impressive as its breathtaking surroundings, with a collection of Laurence Graff’s personally curated artworks adorning the walls, showcasing some of the finest of South Africa’s contemporary artists, and décor designed by leading interior design experts, David Collins Studio.
Guests here will find themselves immersed in a truly exquisite haven of tranquillity; with just ten lodges, each accommodation offers a place to escape. There are eight one-bedroom lodges, each boasting a private heated plunge pool, while the two-bedroom family lodges feature spacious lap pools, meaning there is little need to leave your lodge to visit the main resort pool. All of the lodges also boast a private sundeck, ideal for making the most of the spectacular views beyond. Begin your journey to relaxation at the Delaire Graff Spa, where indulgent holistic experiences, enhanced by leading luxury skincare products, leave both body and mind glowing. Take time out and rest at the soothing infinity-edged swimming pool or heated Jacuzzi, and soak up the sun on the scenic outdoor terrace.
Dining is another highlight, with the kitchens dedicated to the philosophy of ‘green gastronomy’, ensuring all fruit and vegetables are freshly picked from the estate’s own greenhouse, while all meat served is locally and ethically sourced. Under the South Africa sunshine, you will also discover the botanical paradise that is the spectacular garden display of over three-hundred-and-fifty indigenous plants, enveloping the striking collection of golden sculptures and water features. Beyond, the twenty hectares of vineyards produce some of the most celebrated wines in the Southern Hemisphere, which can be enjoyed in the sumptuous Wine Lounge, while some of the world’s most fabulous pieces of diamond jewellery, handmade in London by Graff’s Master Craftsmen, and fine Italian linens can be browsed at the estate’s prestigious selection of boutiques.
