Hotel Overview

“Following a family holiday to South Africa in 2010, founder Analjit Singh (otherwise known as BAS) fell in love with the Cape. His latest hospitality venture, Leeu Estates, a grand 19th century manor house, is testament to his love of all things Capetonian, judging by his authentic approach to its renovation. Accommodation is divided into cottages, dotted around the property's 68 hectares - amidst vineyards, the local fynbos and manicured gardens. Rooms feature neutral colour palettes with tactile textiles, valley views and stunning bathrooms including complimentary toiletries. Head chef Oliver Cattermol leads a platinum team serving dishes pleasing to the eye and the stomach. Dine al fresco on The Garden Terrace or in the more formal Dining Room and don't miss out on wine tasting at The Wine Studio, where you can sample a few bottles of the award winning Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines. An avid art collector, BAS proudly displays the work of prominent local artists, most notably the eye-catching ‘Reflective Resonance’ by acclaimed sculptor Angus Taylor. An afternoon spent wandering through the picturesque 'Bokkie' Garden and vineyards is time well spent. As is sampling some treatments, using organic Himalayan ingredients, in the spa. With so much more to offer than just the enviable weather (indoor and outdoor pools, great walks and food, history and culture) Leeu Estates provides a superb stay - anytime of year. ”
