THE STEENBERG INTRODUCES A “SENSE OF THE CAPE”PACKAGE
Experience the Best of South Africa in Five Fabulous Nights!
With so much going for it—vast winelands, gourmet dining, rich history, magnificent scenery, great golfing, shopping, and more—it’s no wonder the Western Cape of South Africa is becoming one of the world’s premier tourist destinations. The Steenberg Hotel & Winery’s “Sense of the Cape” package is designed to give visitors a true taste of the region while providing five-star luxury at one of South Africa’s most elegant properties.
The package, which consists of five nights in a Standard Luxury Room and breakfast daily, includes an afternoon cooking class with award-winning Chef Garth Almazan, who will demonstrate how to prepare a contemporary South African dinner, and a private wine tasting with a wine steward in the hotel’s new tasting room, where guests will savor a variety of excellent Steenberg wines and be given tips on how to coordinate wines with food. In addition, they will be treated to a rejuvenating Vinotherapy body treatment in the Spa, a round of golf for two on the Steenberg’s award-winning championship course, considered one of the finest in South Africa, as well as be privy to spectacular sightseeing, including
a full day Cape Point and Cape Town tour, a walking tour to Kalk Bay to take in art galleries and antique shops, and a tour of the grounds and historic buildings of the hotel. Free daily transfers to restaurants and shops within a 5km radius are also part of the deal. The package, which is valid until December 31, 2008, starts at US $844* per person, based on two persons sharing a room.
Situated in the beautiful Constantia Valley, just a 20 minute drive from Cape Town, the Steenberg Hotel & Winery is set on the Cape’s oldest wine farm which still produces award-winning wines. The hotel buildings, dating back to 1682, have been painstaking restored and have been declared a national monument. An 18-hole championship golf course designed by Peter Matkowitz follows the natural contours of the original farm. The three new Heritage Suites, which blend period antiques with sophisticated technology, are a tribute to three distinct historic periods of South Africa and exceed the expectations of even the most seasoned travelers. The Steenberg also offers a full-service spa, two swimming pools, steam room and hairdresser. The name comes from the imposing Steenberg Mountain that overlooks the hotel, providing panoramic views and intriguing surroundings for exploration.
