The Lanzerac – 5 Star Luxury at its Best
Having been to the Lanzerac before, I thought that I knew what I was going back to. However, as I was driving up to the hotel, my expectations were already over exceeded. I had forgotten the pure beauty the surroundings and views bring to your soul, instantly changing your mood to one that is more relaxed and calm. The absolute authenticity of the hotel and vineyards is seen throughout every little detail.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by friendly and helpful faces who instantly took care of everything and I was guided to my luxury suite. This suite was more than I could have ever imagined. Equipped with a beautiful lounge, comfortable bed, TV, WIFI, an extravagant bathroom (with a steam room) and even a coffee machine, the suite was a 5-star luxury at its best! The furniture and décor details are extravagant and I was treated to delicious wine and olives (yummy). Of course, after a long day, I jumped into the spacious shower and then into bed with my wine and olives, enjoying an evening of relaxation.
Situated in the heart of the Stellenbosch Mountains, The Lanzerac is not purely a hotel and spa but also has a great history of wines, with rolling vineyards in every direction. I had the privilege of exploring the lands, climbing up some of the surrounding mountains, getting a bird’s eye view of the full Lanzerac property which was just mesmerising. They offer the most delicious range of wines, with the option of a wine tasting in a designated room, adding to the elegance of the whole experience.
Although I couldn’t go to the spa on this particular stay, it looked like a dream and I will definitely be visiting the spa on my next stay. The food was to die for, with every meal getting better than the last. Breakfast was a full-on the buffet with all the added extras giving me a great start to my day. With lunch and dinner, I was treated to a Lanzerac wine which was paired perfectly. Each and every one of their wines is bursting with flavour, making it easy and delicious to drink and pair with any meal.
After a morning of exploring, I was able to relax in my suite lounge, munching on a tasty triple-decker sandwich with salad and sipping on Lanzerac wine. I absolutely love that the suites have your own personal lounge where I can be myself and wear what I want – as if I was at home in my own lounge.
Overall, the stay was more than what I expected and I cannot wait for the next one! Every visit gets better and better. Until the next one.
