STELLENBOSCH, SOUTH AFRICA – In December 2013 the newly built Cape Dutch style Aaldering Luxury Lodges were opened. The new landmark of winery lodges was instantly awarded with an astonishing 5 stars, the highest achievable rating for luxury hotels. Aaldering Luxury Lodges proved to maintain and increasingly shape the winery lodging experience over 2014, now being appointed as one of the top 3 lodging locations in Stellenbosch and given a average 9,8 rating by its visitors on Booking.com.
The lodges’ interior space (100m2), which was decorated by Dutch estate owner Marianne Aaldering, boasts a number of pastoral touches. Overnighters can walk barefoot on terracotta tiling, let the morning light in through slatted wooden shutters, store belongings in antique wardrobes and on ornate dressing tables, cuddle up next to a crackling wood fire in the spacious lounge and get lost in a cloud-soft king-size bed garnished with fluffy pillows, not to mention the joy of an additional pillow menu.
The lodges blend antiquity with a number of modern comforts, resulting in a harmonious mix of authenticity and luxury. So, while it may be the thatching and comfy furnishing that give the B&B its charm, it’s the glossy, all-white bathroom, contemporary kitchen finishes (the lodges are semi self-catering), sexy Nespresso coffee machine, Wi-fi enabled iPad, flat-screen television and sleek hi-fi system that make the accommodation deserving of its five-star status.
Guests of Aaldering Luxury Lodges will enjoy a delicious hot breakfast in the intimate tasting room with stunning vineyard view. Lodge Manager William Mukondwa is appointed for his impeccable feel for service and hospitality and guarantees his guests a relaxing and perfect stay at on one of South Africa’s most beautiful and idyllic wine estates. Also expect a mesmerizing private tasting and cellar tour by the winemaker…
