What do you call a hotel that looks more picturesque than the most beautiful painting, anticipates your needs and requests before you even do, and makes you feel as though you're living in a dream? The Steenberg, that's what you call it. This delightful slice of heaven in the heart of the Constantia wine valley in South Africa overwhelmes you upon arrival, with just the greenery and brilliance of their perfectly manicured grounds. As you amble slowly down the pathways, you discover vineyards, a golf course, friendly faces walking the grounds, and the most charming milk-white Cape Colonial-style structures whose exteriors have been painstakingly and carefully maintained in original fashion dating back to the 1600's. The Steenberg's serene atmosphere makes it impossible not to feel as though you are truly relaxed, with time on your hands. Time to walk the grounds, time to indulge in the luxurious spa or enjoy a complimentary wine tasting, time to laze by the quizzically modern yet comfortable pool area- and the supremely helpful staff make you feel completely at home. What's most special about this property are their 3 Heritage Suites- incredibly grand, individually styled villa homes that you can opt for. Ideal for a small group or those that just want to feel completely secluded, these suites come with the services of a butler, have impossibly equipped kitchens, spacious rooms and their own unique touches. Our choice is the Khoi Khoi suite, where you'll find things like a stream-like fountain running through your room, or a plasma TV that doubles as a mirror and curious yet cool artwork. Plus, it's just a short 20 minute drive to Cape Town so you've really got the best of all worlds, in one world- the Steenberg world. Trust us, this one is not to be missed...
