A self-contained #staycation is becoming the preferred choice of local and international travellers looking for a safe holiday destination with the promise of absolute privacy.
Mindful of these changing trends, Steenberg Hotel & Spa’s exquisitely refurbished two and three bedroom Private Villas are a haven of absolute tranquillity in the heart of the Constantia Wine Valley. With all the luxuries and personalised touches of a 5-star boutique hotel, Steenberg offers a safe escape for long staying guests and families seeking all the comforts of a home away from home.
Rooted in the history of South Africa’s oldest registered farm and surrounded by magical mountain views, verdant vineyards, lush gardens and majestic oak trees, these ultra-exclusive villas are spread across the idyllic property offering guests the highest level of privacy.
Complete with private dining spaces, outside terraces and their own private pools, social distancing is effortless. Steenberg Villas are wrapped in understated luxury with sufficient room and every amenity guests could wish for. Offering the best of both worlds, kitchen facilities give families the opportunity to prepare light snacks, with the option of top notch dining experiences at two popular Steenberg restaurants right on the doorstep.
Take in the brisk morning air while sipping coffee on your own private terrace. Later, join the little ones for a splash in the privacy of your own pool. In the evenings, unwind with a glass of Steenberg Cap Classique in the oversized bathtub or snuggle up on one of the plush lounge couches for some family time or to watch your favourite Netflix show.
The gracefully appointed three bedroom villa with three stylishly finished bathrooms is a glorious family space of absolute elegance and pared down luxury with every need anticipated and every comfort considered. Combined with an extravagance of welcoming outdoor spaces, everyone can find their spot of refuge for moments of introspection or come together to enjoy precious time with loved ones.
A private patio leads out onto the lawn while the generous pool terrace offers spectacular views. On cooler evenings, cosy up in front of the fireplace with a good read and a glass of Steenberg Merlot. A variety of fun games and activities are on hand to keep everyone entertained.
The stately Manor House is another gem of seclusion available for exclusive use. Perfect for when you need to be together yet apart with your own private room, for those intimate moments of celebration with your nearest and dearest.
The majestic dining room with a dinner table fit for a celebratory feast is the heart of the Manor House, which comprises four luxurious en suite rooms and a one bedroom suite. Separated from the grand entrance to the homestead by an intricately carved screen of stinkwood, ebony and yellowwood, the dining room offers a safe and discreet environment for life’s significant milestones.
With its striking gable and high beamed ceilings, this historic homestead dating back to the 17th century has been declared a Provincial Heritage Site. Touches of contemporary decor interplaying with antique pieces and valuable artworks create an air of history and glamour for memorable, picture perfect moments.
Upon arrival, there is much to see and do during a stay at Steenberg. Take a stroll through the tranquil bounty of the gardens in full bloom, or go on a run or cycle through the vineyards. For avid golfers, the adjacent 18-hole championship golf course is the ultimate escape.
A luxurious pamper session by the highly skilled therapists at the Steenberg Spa promises absolute time-out to reconnect with your inner self and those you hold dear. The tranquil outdoor treatment area in the scented garden under a regal oak tree will transcend you to a place of harmony and newfound energy. This hidden garden is infused by fragrant herbs and flowers and is a sensorial paradise of complete privacy. Poolside manicures and pedicures are another outdoor spoil on warmer days.
