DELAIRE GRAFF ESTATE’S NEW SUPERIOR LODGES & OWNER’S VILLA
An exciting announcement from Delaire Graff Estate reveals the opening of six Superior Lodges and a breath-taking Owner’s Villa on 21st December 2018, offering guests an opportunity to enjoy the exquisite natural beauty of the South African Winelands.
General Manager of Delaire Graff Lodges & Spa, Matthew Smith, says, “We are excited to witness the Estate’s biggest transformation since opening our doors in 2009. The new Superior Lodges and Owner’s Villa are exceptional gems further showcasing this extraordinary destination, the jewel of the Cape Winelands. We look forward to further realising our vision for the Estate and sharing this latest offering with our guests.”
Luxurious and opulent on a grand scale, the new four-bedroom private Villa accommodates up to eight guests and is the ideal option when travelling together. The sophisticated interiors boast a living room, dining room, study areas and fully equipped kitchen, as well as two spacious livings areas to entertain.
The Villa offers a large, private outdoor space complete with sun loungers and parasols so guests can soak up the sunshine. Take a dip in the 14-metre swimming pool or jacuzzi while enjoying the unsurpassed views of the vineyards and mountains for which the Cape Winelands is renowned. Space for up to two personnel is also available within the Villa’s spacious interiors.
The new Superior Lodges of Delaire Graff Lodges & Spa bestow the perfect Winelands escape. Each of the six new lodges accommodate two adults and with interconnecting options available, they are another ideal option for families or friends travelling together. A tranquil, private outdoor space features a heated plunge pool and comfortable loungers to gaze across the valley and with panoramic views of the Estate’s vineyards.
Designed and curated by the celebrated David Collins Studio, the Owner’s Villa and Superior Lodges incorporate bespoke materials and soft- furnishings. Walls are adorned with original artworks by some of Africa’s most celebrated modern and contemporary artists. Each piece is shared from the personal collection of Laurence Graff. Evolving the Studio’s original design-vocabulary, inspiration is taken from African palettes and patterns, marrying and contrasting these with European touches.
David Collins Studio’s Creative Director Simon Rawlings says, “Each lodge features interiors that have been carefully finished with textures and tones to create modern, timeless and detailed interiors. The finishes have been carefully selected to work with the estate aesthetic and to sit harmoniously within the landscape. Personally selected pieces, artwork and objects ensure the lodges exceed guest expectations, and feel uniquely Delaire.
Nestled in the heart of South Africa’s Stellenbosch Valley, Delaire Graff Estate offers a peaceful haven that exudes a unique atmosphere of the utmost refinement. The Jewel of the Cape Winelands offers an ultra-luxurious, multi-faceted experience where guests can dine in the two flagship restaurants, savour award-winning wines from the Estate’s winery, admire art from Laurence Graff’s personal collection, wander indigenous gardens, browse the finest boutiques, or simply relax in the sumptuous Spa.
A stay in the exclusive Delaire Graff Superior Lodges or Owner’s Villa is an unforgettable experience.
