Fodor's Expert Review Majeka House
26–32 Houtkapper St., Paradyskloof, Somerset West, Western Cape, 7600, South Africa
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.
