Cape Winelands, South Africa

Babylonstoren is just a relaxing stay, it’s an experience. Set in the spectacular Franschhoek wine valley, the hotel is nestled on one of the oldest Cape Dutch farms in the Cape Winelands. Here, exceptional accommodation intertwines with great food and sensational better wine. If it isn’t obvious yet, this is one of our favorite destinations in South Africa. 

One of the main attractions of the Babylonstoren is its incredible garden that produces mouth-watering, seasonal fruit and veg. With a “farm to fork” philosophy, menus are guided by what’s available in the garden. Food aside, the accommodation is equally astounding. Simple, luxurious and contemporary, the hotel consists of elegant suites in the Farmhouse, garden cottages, fynbos cottages and two family or group houses.
