This complex of bright white buildings nestled in gardens overflowing with roses, lavender, frangipani, and jasmine in an upmarket residential corner of Somerset West is a perfect oasis and a great base for exploration. It's a mere 5- to 10-minute drive to several of the country's best wine estates and restaurants, but you don't need to venture far for outstanding food: the hotel's Makaron is regularly voted one of the country's top 20 restaurants. Inside Majeka's tranquil
walls, rooms are elegantly lavish with tones of silver and gold and modern chandeliers. A spa, Jacuzzi, sauna, and gym are all available, and lovely outdoor spaces abound, from the various pools to loungers in the magical gardens. Friendly and competent service completes this very peaceful picture.
