A luxurious foray through the Garden of Eden in South Africa

The wine country around the metropolis Cape Town is the culinary epicentre of South Africa. Surrounded by vineyards, Karen Roos and her husband Koos Bekker created the dream resort of Babylonstoren from the former Cape Dutch farm between Paarl and Franschhoek. They transformed the dilapidated houses and fallow land into a blooming, fertile patch of earth and revived an important part of South African history with their Garden of Eden (designed by the renowned French landscape architect Patrice Taravella). Today, a charming hotel, winery, spa and various shops unite to form a perfect holiday symbiosis on the 200-hectare site. Beautiful cottages, suites and the Manor House offer luxurious accommodation in the typical Cape Dutch style. The restaurant "Babel" is one of the best pleasure temples in the region. Wine cellar tours, guided garden walks and a pool complete the offer.


The hotel offers its guests nine luxurious suites for two persons in the farmhouse. The Garden Cottages (own kitchen) offer lime-white walls and designer furniture, for example by Philippe Starck, with six one-bedroom suites as well as three one-bedroom and four two-bedroom houses. The exclusive Manor House is ideal for families with children or friendly couples as it has five double bedrooms and five bathrooms. Brand new: Six Fynbos Cottages bordering vineyards and orchards. With spectacular views, they are ideal for nature lovers and birdwatchers. These cottages have a bedroom for two and a kitchen. Common to all accommodations is the authentic Cape Dutch architecture with modern design, TV, telephone, CD player, iPod docking station, WIFI, tea and coffee maker, air conditioning, ceiling fan, minibar and safe.
