We are at the end of August 2020 and still in lockdown in South Africa! I was absolutely delighted when I could finally book my staycation at Majeka House in Stellenbosch when we moved to Level 2 earlier this month.
It is hard to believe that this beautiful tranquil is in the center of Stellenbosch! With a bold, plush, highly individual style, this small luxury hotel with beautiful gardens and destination restaurant ake for a seductive escape. In fact, Condé Nast Johansens pits Majeka House as the 2017 Award Winner of the Best Design Hotel in the Luxury Hotels.
We stayed in a Garden Alternative Room during our stay at Majeka House. It has a large terrace and semi-private pool area. The double showers propositions this to be perfect for a romantic break away. The beds are above and beyond what comfort can possibly entail.
The M Lounge at Majeka House gives visitors a warm library feel with French-inspired armchairs, and wallpapers by Halogen House. They have a concise selection of gourmet bar snacks and bistro dishes – think hand-cut hips with rosemary fries or the crispy calamari with a dirty martini.
Dining at Majeka House’s Makaron Restaurant makes for the perfect date night venue. It was my 3rd time having dinner at Makaron, and it is still by far one of the best dining experience venues in the Wine Lands.
Due to COVID-19 hotels can no longer offer a buffet breakfast option to their guests. However, I absolutely loved the fact that Majeka House offered all their guest their own little breakfast buffet experience on their tables, which ensure that it was safe to enjoy this little luxury.
The COVID-19 protocols Majeka House is taking to ensure their guests have a safe experience is out of this world, especially their check-in and check-out service.
If you are looking for a beautiful, tranquil escape, I recommend you book your stay at Majeka House. They are currently running some amazing specials which you can find on their website.
