This five-star boutique hotel is nestled in the tranquil Constantia Valley, against the slopes of the Constantiaberg Mountain Range. The hotel buildings, dating back to 1682, were painstakingly restored and have been declared a National Monument (the Steenberg is the oldest farm in Constantia Valley). Here the legendary elegance and traditions of the 17th century blend harmoniously with the most refined luxurious conveniences of modern age. The Steenberg also boasts a state-of-the-art winery, producing some of the country’s finest wines, as well as an 18-hole championship golf course. There are 21 guest rooms and three Heritage suites to choose from within the original buildings: the Manor House, Jonkershuis (young man’s house) and the Barn. The original wine cellar is now Catharina’s restaurant, one of Cape Town’s best. The sleek interior of the restaurant complements its historic Cape Dutch architecture and echoes its African roots with locally custom-made timber furniture and tactile fabrics in rich earthy tones. The expanded windows and doors offer sweeping views of False Bay, the surrounding mountains, and the sculpture-filled vineyards and gardens of the hotel. Guests can wander into Cape Town’s city center with a hotel transfer or relax in the hotel’s luxurious spa or in one of the two swimming pools on site.
