Sometime this year my bursary foundation hosted their annual leadership Summit and used the Spier Hotel and Wine farm as the conference area, this by far has been the most beautiful place I have been accommodated in and I always leave wishing I could have stayed longer. Spier is the one place I would definitely go back to for a “Baecation” because of all the open spaces and breath-taking views. I have never stayed shorter than a week at Spier and honestly I wish I could be there for a month at a time. They have various art displays from their reception area to the buildings right outside of their conference area and the place in is entirety is just too amazing to be described you must experience it yourself.
Spier, in the heart the famous Cape Winelands, is more than a hotel. It is a destination in itself. One of the first hotels in South Africa to be Fair Trade in Tourism certified, Spier offers visitors a variety of authentic experiences – from food and wine to outdoor activities – in beautiful surroundings.
Inspired by creativity and craft – both old and new – they’ve meticulously restored the farm’s beautiful Cape Dutch buildings. Inside these as well as across our grounds and in the Spier Hotel, you’ll find artworks from the Spier Art Collection – one of the largest collections of contemporary works in the country. This is just one of the many ways Spier supports South Africa’s arts community. https://www.spier.co.za
For the avid wine lover there is lots to offer as well, I was not there for leisure but got a glimpse at the Wine Tasting area and like everything else it was other- worldly.
If you ever you are in the Stellenbosch area making a trip to this Wine Farm and Hotel it is absolutely be ideal. It ticks all the boxes for me.
