The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel: Sumptuous Elegance in Constantia

Sumptuous accommodation, superb dining, a serene spa, and stellar service await at this historic hotel in the heart of the Constantia Winelands.

Part of the esteemed Relais & Châteaux hotel group, the five-star Cellars-Hohenort Hotel offers faultless luxury steeped in historic charm a mere 15-minute drive from Cape Town’s city centre.

Set in the picturesque Constantia Winelands, overlooking gardens, vineyards and Table Mountain in the distance, this beautiful escape is a veritable oasis, making the outside world seem irrelevant and far removed.

Home to two excellent restaurants, a sumptuous spa, beautiful wedding venue, and award-winning landscaped gardens, The Cellars-Hohenort hotel is a dream destination for a sojourn you won’t soon forget.

Delectable dining

The cherry on the top of your stay at The Cellars-Hohenort is the conveniently located Greenhouse, one of South Africa’s top 10 restaurants, a mere stone’s throw from your room. A timeless culinary gem, the restaurant is helmed by head chef Farrel Hirsch, who has a flair for creating innovative dishes and fresh flavour combinations. Here, guests can expect not only a delectable array of curated courses in a culinary journey that’s theatrical but also incredibly warm and relaxed.

The elegant Conservatory restaurant is a relaxed, country-style eatery with a 300-year-old oak tree at its centre, where a farm-fresh breakfast is served daily. Guests can also enjoy a delectable classic high tea, magnificent garden vistas, and a menu of simple yet perfectly executed dishes (overseen by head chef Paul Nash).

Relax and unwind

A footpath around the side of the main building takes you to the heavenly Fresh Wellness Spa that’s surrounded by a spectacular garden. Once inside, the relaxing interior and wonderful sensorial therapies will leave you feeling nothing relaxed and revived.
