While you’re there
Breakfast is served in the Hotel Restaurant, after which a myriad of options await. You might want to spend your day lounging by the pool, at the spa, strolling around the beautiful farm grounds, or gliding through the vineyards on a segway.
There are three distinct foodie offerings: Vadas Smokehouse and Bakery (home of Vadas’ famous pasteis de nata), the casual Farm Café, and the Hotel Restaurant, which is perfect for a drink on the terrace. You can also find a secluded spot under the oak trees or by the dam and enjoy a picnic, or sit on the shady stoep overlooking the dam and mountains while enjoying a wine tasting or a chocolate-and-wine pairing.
And, for unique gifts and souvenirs, try the Hotel Shop or the Craft Market. The Farm Café also stocks an assortment of edible goodies for your pantry and fridge, so that you can take a piece of Spier home with you!
Good to know Spier will donate R21 per night of your bookings to one of its many Growing for Good initiatives, aimed to support the health of the planet and the livelihoods of local people.
