Opened in April 2010, the Delaire Graff Estate Lodges and Spa sit within the Helshoogte Mountain Pass outside Cape Town. Created for Laurence Graff OBE, owner of the Delaire Graff Estate, the design of each lodge is inspired by the local Cape Dutch architecture with a palette that takes inspiration from the backdrop of the wine lands. Grass papers, end grain flooring, polished plasters, hand woven rugs and textured leathers create a refined feel using indigenous materials. The hotel comprises a series of ten lodges that feature a collection of furniture designed by David Collins Studio and fabricated locally in South Africa. The Delaire Graff Estate is the winner of the “Best Grape Estate” from Wallpaper* Magazine and was included in the “Best New Hotels 2011” by Travel & Leisure.
