Asara Wine Estate & Hotel

Polkadraai Rd. (M12), Stellenbosch, Western Cape, 7599, South Africa

This hotel on the outskirts of Stellenbosch might not have the most breathtaking setting that the Winelands has to offer, but what it lacks in location it more than makes up for in luxury and attention to detail. The rooms are classically decorated in creams, whites, and browns and have balconies overlooking the vineyards or hotel courtyard. There are two restaurants and a deli to choose from, and you're a hop and a skip away from Cape Town, the airport, and incredible wine farms. The estate also produces excellent wines, so you don't have to travel if you don't feel like it. And if you're exhausted after a day of wine tasting, the staff can arrange a massage in the privacy of your room.


  • easy access to both Cape Town and the Winelands
  • highly rated wines produced on the estate


  • not far from the Stellenbosch municipal garbage dump
  • lacks the gracious charm of some historic wine farms
  • you'll need a deep pocket
