Property Details

Upon their arrival at Grootbos Villa, guests are immediately made to feel special with a welcoming cheer from staff, a complimentary glass of sparkling South African wine, and the visible evidence of Grootbos’ incredible conservation efforts. All of these elements—plus the sophisticated luxury of the villa—coincide to illustrate that there is no other place in South Africa quite like it.

Completely set apart from its Garden and Forest Lodge sister properties, Grootbos Villa is a testament to the way architecture can so seamlessly extend from its landscape. Six elegant suites sit surrounded by pristine fynbos and take full advantage of the breathtaking 360-degree views of rolling hills, white sand dunes, and the whale-studded waters of Walker Bay meeting the Hermanus mountains in the distance. Inside, light, space, and texture work together to create a combination of sheltered decks, open courtyards, and modern living spaces epitomizing elegance and luxury and soaking in the inescapable views. Valuable South African artworks scale each wall throughout the two large living rooms, dining room, and central fully equipped kitchen, while multiple BBQ areas and a large private pool beg for outdoor entertaining. With a fine selection of local wines in the wine cellar, a media room with big screen television and projector, and a dedicated ranger, chef, and butler, Grootbos Villa leaves little to be desired.

The greatest benefit of Grootbos Villa is the privacy it affords its guests. Guests are completely free to experience all that Grootbos Private Nature Reserve has to offer, without the restrictions of timetables or availability. Set out on 4×4 flower safaris or guided nature tours and discover the incredible tale of conservation within this floral and marine eco-paradise. Learn how recent efforts in fynbos cultivation have generated jobs and enhanced prosperity to the local community, then take a walk among the protea and fynbos to witness firsthand the explosion of color and scent enveloped through this ancient land. Families visiting Grootbos Villa will find countless treasures at their fingertips, from beach excursions filled with fun and games or exciting boat trips to visit seals, penguins, and the humbling giant of the ocean, the Southern Right Whale.
