I can confirm that Stellenbosch is indeed open for business and ready to welcome visitors back to experience this picturesque Winelands town’s warm hospitality. Last month saw the launch of the Support Stellenbosch campaign. As part of the campaign and to highlight local businesses and experiences, Grant and I spent two days exploring this vibrant local town.
Support Stellenbosch, a collaborative town effort, is endorsed by the Stellenbosch Municipality, Stellenbosch University, as well as Wesgro. The campaign aims to not only encourage visitors to support local businesses but also to experience everything that this wonderful area has to offer, from wine farms and restaurants to inspiring arts and culture.
You will have seen my social media posts during our Support Stellenbosch stay, but I thought I would share a bit more detail about our trip – starting with our accommodation at Majeka House.
Support Stellenbosch – Stellenbsoch Accommodation
Stellenbosch offers a wide variety of accommodation, ranging from five-star luxury to comfortable self-catering options. Majeka House, nestled in the quiet leafy suburb of Paradyskloof, is the ideal base to explore this picturesque area and wine region.
Majeka House Boutique Hotel
The five-star boutique hotel offers accommodation in 23 rooms, spread across four room categories, catering to a variety of travellers. The 12 Premier rooms, ideally suited to small groups, are similar in their layout and design.
Gardens rooms lead onto a beautifully manicured garden, with an exclusive-use plunge pool. Similarly, spacious poolside rooms, share a semi-private pool, in a lush garden setting. Mountain View rooms offer the ultimate in privacy, with eye-catching vistas of the surrounding Helderberg Mountains.
The hotel does have an in-house restaurant but if you wish to enjoy a meal in the privacy of your room, I can highly recommend ordering off the room service menu.
Guests can also treat themselves to a luxurious pamper session at the Majeka House Spa. The spa offers two single therapy rooms, as well as a couples’ room. Book one of their holistic facial and body treatments or better yet tailor your own package from their Spa Menu. There are also hydrotherapy pool facilities for guests to enjoy.
Yet another way to Support Stellenbosch is to eat local. The town offers a fantastic selection of eateries, ranging from quaint coffee shops to fine dining. During our stay, we were fortunate to eat at Majeka Kitchen.
Chef Vuyo has taken over as head chef of the hotel’s in-house restaurant, not an easy task during these challenging times. Her dishes, although classic and simplistic, are full of authenticity and flavour. Breakfasts at Majeka Kitchen are a rather lavish affair – you will definitely not leave hungry!
