Babylonstoren: A Magical Farm Stay in Cape Wine Country Second to None
Babylonstoren in the Cape winelands is nothing less than a utopia. This is an enchanting farm world of vineyards and orchards; ducks, donkeys and a good pecking order of roosters; top of the line gastronomy and fabulous homegrown wines. A Garden of Eden shelters all manner of visual delights and botanicals that heal. Balmy days of endless summers are cooled at farm dams and reservoirs, and on sublime pool decks that bring astonishing views of wine country. Spa pleasures and speciality tasting and shopping experiences provide a sensory extravaganza. For hands-on people, harvesting is the ultimate farm-stay experiential treat. The enchantment of Cape heritage and centuries-old farm buildings combine with the sophistication of a modern, top-tier hotel, producing an experience that is utterly magical, and grounded in all the standards of luxury of a distinguished, world-class hotel.
