Babylonstoren

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.

Very rustic stay in the most beautiful setting

London,England

We had visited Babylonstoren last year and loved the grounds and decided this year we would stay for a few days. We stayed in a one bedroom cottage which to be honest was very rustic rather than luxurious and a little on the sparse side when it came to towels and toiletries . The fresh fruit however was excellent and replenished daily. The pool situation is not great with the use of the wooden tub pool which has very fews chairs and the spa pool which was indeed very crowded. The grounds and gardens are spectacular , and being able to pick fruit off a tree was fantastic . As a guest staying there , during the day it is over run with visitors which kind of takes the exclusivity away as it really does turn into a tourist attraction- fair enough as i was one of those visitors last year ! No doubt Soho Farmhouse must have taken their inspiration from here , where in my opinion i feel they have got the accommodation right but maybe not the rest of it in terms of an actual working farm with stunning grounds, scenery and really good food. Really enjoyed the wine tasting, which was free for guests and perhaps one of the best food platters i have ever had . If you havent been , i would definitely recommend it .

A MUST on your Cape Town bucketlist

Kuils River, South Africa

N-E-V-E-R leave Cape Town without visiting Babylonstoren! This estate features 2 extravagant restaurants, a Scent Room, Wine Tasting room, a Deli with Cheese, Bread and meat to DIE for as well as other high-end products. But NOTHING can compare with their breathtakingly garden. You can get lost there (wich could be a delightfull expierence!). Divine.
