The Grande Roche


The Winelands’ most tasteful experience

Discerning travellers in search for a tranquil base from which to explore the Cape Winelands need to look no further than Grande Roche in Paarl. This five-star hotel is not only conveniently located, but (as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World) also guarantees guests the finest in wining and dining.

Paarl is a mere 45 minutes from Cape Town, and only 30 minutes from two other Winelands heavyweights, namely Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. The region boasts several award-winning restaurants, wine estates, and golf courses – but if the best in cultivar and cuisine is what you’re after, you don’t even need to leave the premises. At the on-site Bosman’s Restaurant, a sommelier is on hand to recommend the ideal wine to pair with any of the exiting dishes on Michelin-trained Executive Chef Roland Gorgosilich’s menu. 

This tasteful touch extends to the accommodation: Grande Roche is situated on a working wine farm at the foot of Paarl Rock and overlooks the district’s rolling vineyards. The buildings were once an old farmhouse and slave quarters which have been tastefully transformed into 28 Luxury Suites. Top tip: for a more private experience, book the Garden Suite (previously the farm stables) which comes with a private Jacuzzi, terrace, and patio.

  • Enjoy exciting cuisine at the award-winning Bosman’s Restaurant – with wine recommendations from a resident sommelier
  • A five-star hotel and a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World
  • Only 45 minutes from Cape Town, and only 30 minutes from Stellenbosch and Franschhoek
