Delaire Graff Lodge and Spa


Situated on the highest crest of the spectacular Helshoogte Mountain Pass linking the historic wine-making towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, the Delaire Graff Estate is home to one of South Africa's most exquisite boutique hotels.


The Delaire Graff Lodge and Spa is an architectural celebration, nestled in magnificent indigenous gardens and surrounded by hundreds of acres of perfectly maintained vineyards. Set against the striking backdrop of the Simonsberg Mountains, with sweeping views across Stellenbosch, the property is a symphony for the senses, combining understated elegance with cutting-edge contemporary design; a sense of provenance with modern sustainability; and natural beauty with the finest South African art.


Delaire Graff Estate’s unique terroir on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass is noted for its high-altitude vineyards, excellent soils and cooling sea breezes. Rated as one of the top ten wine producers in South Africa, the Estate features a state-of-the-art winery with an elegant wine lounge displaying important pieces of contemporary South African art. Enjoy works by William Kentridge, Deborah Bell, and Robert Hodgins while savouring Delaire Graff's multi-award winning Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon.


Discreetly occupying the Estate's prime location, the Delaire Graff Lodge and Spa provides a sense of escape and privacy for discerning international travelers. Here, guests can enjoy exceptional art and design, gourmet food, award-winning wines and a world-class Spa. The lodge's interior is designed around an impressive collection of contemporary South African art, which is mirrored by the spectacular landscaping, with over 300 species of indigenuous plants, specially commissioned sculptures, water features, and reflective pools that accentuate the dramatic mountain setting.


The sense of sophisticated indulgence is perpetuated in the Estate's two gourmet restaurants, where internationally-trained chefs use only the freshest organic ingredients and latest techniques to create and artfully present dishes that are lively, aromatic and robust while maintaining a style of cuisine that’s synonymous with vitality, wellness and healthy living.



 Finally, the exclusive Lodge features just 10 sumptuously appointed suites (called "lodges") in addition to 6 new superior lodges and the Owner's Villa complete with 4 bedrooms for exclusive use. Each of the generously proportioned suites is thoughtfully conceived with careful attention to detail and luxury - spacious living areas and light-filled interiors flow seamlessly together, with bespoke furniture by master craftsmen and the finest Egyptian cotton bed linens; touches of indigenous Cape Dutch style blend artfully with contemporary African designs. Each suite comes complete with a heated infinity pool and private butler service.


Delaire Graff is possibly the most sophisticated and indulgent boutique hotel in South Africa. From the setting to the wine and cuisine, the artwork to the landscaping, the facilities to the accommodations, it is a remarkable property that offers beauty, tranquility, and relaxation while stimulating the senses and the intellect.
