Experience Luxury and Breathtaking Nature at Babylonstoren, an Elegant Farm Hotel in South Africa’s Popular Wine Region.

Located in the heart of South Africa’s wine region between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, Babylonstoren is an exquisite blend of sustainability, luxury and beautiful nature. The property is a green paradise that stretches over 200 hectares. It offers not only quality accommodation but also vineyards and an extensive fruit and vegetable garden.

The rooms and cottages are elegantly designed offering understated luxury with a perfect blend of modern amenities and traditional Cape Dutch architecture. Some of the farm buildings, which are over 300 years old, have been converted into sophisticated guest accommodations. Thick, whitewashed walls, elegant gables and cosy fireplaces meet stylish, modern interiors with designer furniture. From the suites in the Farmhouse and the cosy Garden Cottages you can step right out into the wonderful garden. The Fynbos Cottages are new builds in traditional style and have a kitchen and living room overlooking the vineyards. Complimentary teas, olive oil, and homemade wine are available for guests.

Babel, the hotel’s popular restaurant, offers a unique culinary experience. In keeping with the farm-to-fork philosophy, most of the ingredients are harvested fresh from the gardens at Babylonstoren. This makes every meal a celebration of local and seasonal flavours, with changing menus each named after the colours of its ingredients. At the Greenhouse, you can enjoy picnic-style food and refreshments, while the Old Bakery transforms from bakery to Italian restaurant in the evening.
