The two luxurious lodges and villa have been artfully crafted within rare fynbos and milkwood forests on a mountain slope overlooking the whale watching Mecca of Walker Bay and Gansbaai.
Grootbos Private Nature Reserve boasts the best of two worlds - exquisite 5-star comfort and extravagance in an idyllic haven where the unsurpassed beauty of nature dominates even the most lavish interior and exterior design. The two luxurious lodges and villa have been artfully crafted within rare fynbos and milkwood forests on a mountain slope overlooking the whale watching Mecca of Walker Bay and Gansbaai.
The reserve with its 2500 hectares represents the habitat for more than 768 species of plants, some of which can only be found in this area.. The brand-new luxury villa is an architectural masterpiece of sophisticated contemporary design, embedded exactly in this incredible surrounding. It includes 6 elegant suites with splendid 180 °-view of the ocean, where you can enjoy sublime sunsets without even having to leave your holiday home. The villa is equipped with multiple spacious common areas: spend some delightful moments around the fireplace in the living room with your beloved ones, enjoy excellent food prepared by your private chef or relax in the heated outdoor pool while overlooking a nature lover’s paradise.
One of the villa’s highlights is that the building can adjust to weather conditions by offering the two separate patios, accessible through large glass doors. On perfect days you can open both doors to the patios whereas you can close them should the weather be dull and windy.
The luxury interior and the sophisticated architecture harmonize with each other, resulting in a beautiful picture. Being practical and esthetic at the same time, the modern-classic furniture provides supreme comfort and consists in slightly female-shaped furnishings such as swan chairs and white-leathered couches. Interior and exterior are designed in neutral tones according to the contemporary South African style.
