STAY
From a Condé Nast Johansens review when Majeka House won Best Design Hotel in the Luxury Hotels, Spas and Venues.

“Full of character and high-spec finishes with the warmth of a private home, Majeka House is undeniably seductive.”

Ne prepared for Lloyd and Karine’s 23-room hotel, restaurant and spa to disrupt your Cape Wine Route plans: you’ll be staying a little while longer than originally planned…

Full of character and high-spec finishes with the warmth of a private home, Majeka House is undeniably seductive. First, there’s the pretty garden setting in a leafy suburb of Stellenbosch, then there’s the quirky design features that have you looking up close and making notes. The Majeka Spa’s menu of varied treatments and Makaron Restaurant’s gourmet dishes and fine wines are the indulgent extras that seal the deal: you’re staying an extra day or two!”

DINE
The chef of Majeka Kitchen at Majeka House, Lucas celebrates hyper-local ingredients that give his dishes the distinct taste and texture of the Cape. He sources nearly all the produce for his contemporary cuisine from within a 20km radius of his Stellenbosch kitchen.

“This valley is an inspiring place for a chef to work,” he says. “We are surrounded by small-scale, ethically minded farmers who are keen to have working partnerships with chefs and they take their roles seriously in bringing fresh and often unfamiliar flavours to the plate.

The restaurant interior, designed by Etienne Hanekom, reflects Majeka Kitchen’s ethos of showcasing hyper-local ingredients. From the botanical prints and whimsical textiles to the contemporary furnishings, every table tells its own story and invites the diner into an immersive experience: quirky yet utterly rooted in strong design aesthetics.

The kitchen is at the heart of things, where chefs look out onto the restaurant as they chop and sauté. And it’s just as easy for them to walk outside to pick fresh herbs from the garden.

Welcome to a kitchen of culinary delights, where the sheer enjoyment of dining culture is celebrated.

The town is also host to a number of ancient buildings steeped in history. Dorp Street is home to some of the oldest surviving buildings in any major town in Southern Africa, some dating back as far as the 1700s.


Hiking
Jonkershoek Nature Reserve is a hiker’s paradise, with many trail options, a great one for the hot summer days is the Tweede Waterval walk.
