Polished sophistication

For the last 10 years, the natural beauty of the mountains and sweeping valleys surrounding DELAIRE GRAFF LODGES & SPA has been complemented by the sophisticated attention to every detail on the estate.

Whether it be the treatments in Delaire Graff Spa, a walk in the curated gardens, incredible art in unexpected places, boutiques, award-winning wines or even in reading the daily newspaper, every moment is considered and delivered to perfection.

While Delaire Graff Estate celebrates a decade of world-class hospitality, it continues to evolve as we take a look at the new Superior Lodges.

South Africa

WHAT WE LOVE: Many of our team are South African and we are all extremely passionate about the country, its people, wildlife and scenic beauty – who would not be with an office in the Cape winelands! But most of all we are proud of what South Africa has achieved and the challenges we have overcome. It is a country that has diversity as its hallmark. From lush forests, vast savannahs, beautiful beaches, arid semi-desert, dramatic mountain ranges to its cosmopolitan cities, ‘Big Five’ wildlife reserves, winelands, gourmet restaurants and colourful shanty towns: South Africa has all any visitor could ask for. Strong on adventure, sport, nature and wildlife, it is also a pioneer and global leader in responsible tourism.


Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

This founding lodge features a classic-contemporary style of simple elegance that embraces the lodge's splendid setting high up on a steep bank overlooking the Great Fish River. The colour scheme comprises a calm and natural palette of earthy tones, from khaki browns to charcoal greys. Pewter and glass add an effortless yet understated glamour to the furnishings; artefacts such as ostrich eggshells, hides and horns create subtle points of interest and relevance to the lodge's surrounds, whilst natural linens and plenty of texture preserve its simple but sophisticated atmosphere. Stone walls, thatch roofs and long wooden walkways bring natural materials into the interiors, blurring the distinction between inside and outside.

The nine luxurious suites have been designed to take full advantage of the spectacular scenery. Floor-to-ceiling framed glass doors fold back to reveal an uninterrupted wilderness, and the en-suite bathrooms, complete with bath as well as indoor and outdoor showers, separate loo and twin basins offer unmatched views over the sweeping landscape beyond. Keep cool with overheadfans and air conditioning, and enjoy a spacious thatched veranda and private plunge pool with terrace in every suite.

Delicious African-inspired meals are served on private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or in the cosy boma under a magnificent starlit sky. Rugged natural materials like rock, stone and thatch combine with soft-light lanterns, deep overstuffed sofas featuring clean contemporary lines and natural linens with plenty of texture to provide a simple but sophisticated atmosphere, inviting guests to linger and chat in friendly, tranquil spaces.
