Such a magical enchanting place with so much attention to detail. I have just been travelling overseas in Bali and was so blown away by service levels there with the thought to say "You're welcome" after saying thank you. Well the Majeka staff took me back to that Bali experience. Everyone said "You are welcome" and were courteous, passionate and...

Arriving in the area of Majeka House already unwinds you. Once you have settled in your room you start to relax and that is how it should be. you feel very welcomed and you get pampered the moment you walk into the door.

We have had dinner at Macaron Restaurant before, but this was our first visit to the spa and stay in the hotel. It was my wife's birthday and our babymoon (she is also 8 months pregnant), so we were pleased that the friendly spa staff had pregnancy-safe products ready when she arrived for her treatment and they made sure that...

We were to spend one night on the way to Capetown. Thinking that it was just a stopover, we reached the hotel post 6.30 pm. We were greeted at the entrance and it felt nice. Later, we felt that we should have at least reached the hotel early, if not stayed there for 2 nights. We felt that Majeka House...

I have stayed at many hotels in the Stellenbosch area and the Majeka is a gem that is still to be discovered by many. Being a regular traveler for many years, I have yet to see a hotel that equals the personalized and friendly always willing service.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture. Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.After extensive renovations and a designer makeover in 2011, Majeka House now boasts 22 rooms and sophisticated yet witty interiors. There are two new luxury mountain suites above the main hotel with large mountain-view balconies, and three new junior garden suites overlooking a shared, exclusive-use pool area. And, while the entire hotel is ‘parent friendly’, there’s also a fully self- contained villa – set apart from the main hotel and with a large private pool and garden – that is designed specifically with families in mind.The new suites were all conceptualised and decorated by interior design wunderkind Etienne Hanekom, who is also responsible for the award-winning interiors of Makaron Restaurant, the lobby and bar. They capture a sense of drama with boldcolours, rich textures and eye-catching custom-designed wallpapers but are also comfortable, inviting spaces for complete rest and relaxation.All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces has been created. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that resident chef Tanja Kruger presents her menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. ... more   less
