Luxury Villa | Grootbos Nature Reserve

The most exclusive offering in the Grootbos portfolio and quite possibly one of the most exclusive offerings in the whole of South Africa is the Villa.
Set apart and completely surrounded by pristine fynbos, the Villa consists of six elegant suites accommodating up to 12 guests. Here you can relax in over 1000 square meters of utter luxury and comfort, with your own private guide, chef and butler at your beck and call, not to mention complete privacy to enjoy all that Grootbos has to offer.
The elegant and spacious living spaces open generously to a combination of sheltered decks and courtyards, taking full advantage of the incredible views of the rolling hills of fynbos and white sand dunes with Walker Bay and the Hermanus mountains in the distance. And if you can take your eyes off the view for long enough, the walls and surfaces are adorned with large-scale artworks by South African artists such as Cecil Skotnes, J.H. Pierneef, Walter Meyer, William Kentridge and Walter Battis.
The tasteful décor and interior design is a seamless extension of the architecture, which is itself a veneration of the awe-inspiring landscape, creating a harmonious symphony of light, space and texture that encourages supreme relaxation and enjoyment.

Knowing that our guests have enjoyed an active day in the fresh air and coastal surroundings is the encouragement we need at Grootbos to motivate our five-star dining experience. We aim to provide the best possible relaxation and most enjoyable experiences for guests at our two restaurants set in the peace and tranquillity of Grootbos Nature Reserve. You will experience a fusion of culinary delights as well as an unforgettable combination of hospitality, friendship and professionalism while marvelling at the ever changing views over Walker Bay.

Spa Treatments @ Grootbos Bloom Salon

As the day draws to a close, your head is swimming with new and exciting thoughts of the day’s adventures. Your limbs are heavy and weary. It is time to tip-toe into a slower world where the mind can drift away on the vapors of luxurious scents such as sandalwood, arnica and buchu, while your body melts under the soothing touch of our fully qualified beauty therapist. Pampering takes place in the comfort of your own suite or in our recently opened Bloom Salon. For the tired body, a therapeutic full body massage is a definite must, leaving you in a state of absolute calmness. For the weary feet, reflexology, including a footbath, will most certainly do the trick. Manicures, pedicures, facials and a host of other treatments are available as well.
