Relax in the South African countryside

Retreat to Babylonstoren for a relaxed getaway in a wonderfully peaceful location.

Set in meticulously kept gardens, this historic Cape Dutch farm has been carefully converted to offer elegant accommodation in addition to a well-maintained gym, spa, and swimming pool. Stay here and you will also enjoy access to the wine cellar, farm shop and bakery. 

Unwind with a book, enjoy a relaxing treatment in the Garden Spa, bird-watch in the beautiful gardens or partake in a wine tasting activity which includes a guided tour that takes you through the wine making process. There is a great choice of restaurants to try, including simple, fresh and delicious food at Greenhouse; the bakery – offering freshly made pizzas on Wednesdays and Fridays; and Babel, set in the converted cow shed. There is even a healing garden for picking fresh herbs to make soothing teas – bookings are essential for all, however hotel guests get priority.

A walk in tranquility

Johannesburg

My wife has been raving about Babylonstoren since she visited it with her niece last year, so we decided to spend a couple of hours there this week. Now I know what she was on about. After the annoying (but understandable) R10.00 entrance fee per person had been paid, we drove down through the vinyards to the parking aread - also amongst the vines. Our walk through the meticulously laid out and maintained gardens was a delight. There were so many different fruits, vegetables, aloes, grasses and flowers on show - all set in different, interesting areas and lovingly maintained. A delight to the eye and all the senses. I would love to spend more time there in summer. We WILL BE BACK.

Paradise

We stayed here for just one night in early February and It is quite simply the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The gardens are absolutely stunning and the added touches of free bike hire, fresh hand-picked fruit basket in your room and complimentary bar made it a very memorable stay. The garden tour is well worth it to understand about the huge variety of plants they grow. Breakfast was incredible! A very special place!
