Majeka House


Stay in 5 star luxury in the winelands

After a multi-million facelift I bounded into Majeka with high expectations. It exceeded all of them.

A five star boutique hotel in Stellenbosch. With 22 rooms it achieves the Goldilocks balance between intimacy, service and facilities. After a leisurely meander through the abundant Stellenbosch wine estates we arrived at Majeka and continued the theme of the day with an afternoon by the pool sipping on a few G&Ts and wobbling between the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. I gave the gym a wide birth, but had we had time, I would certainly have arranged for a treatment in the Sanctuary Spa with its unique Himalayan Salt Bath and colour treatment.

The rooms are great - spacious and tastefully decorated. But it’s worth spending a bit extra if you can and going for the pool suites or a mountain view suite. The mountain view suites are smaller and a bit darker, but the design is really chic. For luxury, think: Chrysalis 300 thread count linen, flat screen TVs with DSTV, Lavazza coffee machines, gowns, full laundry service, private terrace or balcony, in room dining, Moya body products, a well stocked minibar (which include one of my favourite wines - De Toren Z) and a huge DVD library. If you can’t tear yourself away from your room, you can have your bath turned into a mini-spa with a number of treatments and romantic flourishes to choose from.

The Makaron restaurant and M-Lounge at Majeka won the Eat Out 2011 Boschendal Style Award and it’s easy to see why. In the M-Lounge eclectic design combines modern and classical in ways that only the bravest of interior designers or most deluded of drag queens would imagine possible. But it works. A dark-leather, tufted Chesterfield sits cheek by jowl with a grand piano, an illuminated blue bar, golden pigs, a faux library and a model ship.

Across the hall is the Makaron restaurant which is an altogether less cluttered space incorporating lots of light wood and pastel colours. It’s a spectacular space which certainly enhances the sense of occasion. There’s also a gorgeous terrace for an al fresco lunch and one of the best breakfast spreads I’ve encountered.

Located in Stellenbosch, you’ll need a few days to explore this magnificent part of South Africa!
