Astonishing 5 star rating for Aaldering Luxury Lodges - Stellenbosch

In January 2014, just one month after the official inauguration of the Aaldering Luxury Lodges, the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA) awarded the new landmark of winery lodges in Stellenbosch with an astonishing 5 stars.

To stay at the Aaldering Luxury Lodges is a real treat, even for the seasoned luxury traveler. The spacious lodges (100 m2) are newly built in Cape Dutch style and have a separate living with a romantic fireplace as well as a private terrace, which allows for ultimate enjoyment outdoors with stunning views overlooking the valley’s vineyards while enjoying a glass of the esteemed Aaldering wines. 

Marianne Aaldering designed the lodges herself and they share the same elegant design traits and cultural themes of South Africa like she brought into play with the design of the stylish winery and tasting room of Aaldering Vineyards & Wines (2012). The 3 luxury Cape Dutch lodges with traditional whitewash exterior and named after her grand children Alejandro, Fons Jr. and Florence, glisten and contrast the iconic black winery brilliantly.

“The Cape Dutch lodges with their authentic, yet also lofty, thatched ceilings called for a combination of natural materials like the red stone floor and antique Dutch interior mixed with contemporary design. The Kingsize bed fits the tallest travelers and we offer a special pillow menu for our guests.” Says Marianne, who is delighted with the 5 star rating recognition from TGCSA.

The symbiosis of both antique and design and the soothing colors which Marianne composed, define the graceful serenity of the interior. It goes without saying that there is a designer bathroom, an in-room i-Pad and free wifi, laundry and car-cleaning service, Nespresso coffee machine, complimentary Aaldering wines and a private tasting and cellar tour by the winemaker.

Lodge Manager William Mukondwa is appointed for his impeccable feel for service and hospitality. Guests of Aaldering Luxury Lodges will enjoy a delicious hot breakfast in an intimate setting with stunning vineyard view and William guarantees his guests a relaxing and perfect stay at Aaldering Luxury Lodges, on one of South Africa’s most beautiful and idyllic wine estates.
