About Rosendal Winery & Wellness Retreat
Rosendal Winery & Wellness Retreat offers the discerning traveller a unique country guesthouse and spa experience. Renowned for its warm hospitality, pristine mountain setting, excellent cuisine and award-winning wines, Rosendal is an oasis of calm conveniently located in Robertson's Wine Valley, amidst the many attractions of Route 62, less than two hours drive from Cape Town.
Set at the base of the Kranskop Mountains, Rosendal's Cape Dutch gabled entrance reveals an elegant reception. Guests are welcomed with a glass of Rosendalís finest wine, enjoyed on the outdoor terrace overlooking the farm dam. One glance at the resplendent rolling valleys and russet Sauvignon Blanc vineyards, and a feeling of pure bliss envelops you.
With eight generously appointed rooms, all en-suite and offering magnificent views, our 4-Star Guesthouse offers visitors the opportunity to retreat or mingle, and is ideal for intimate celebrations and corporate breakaways.
Soak up the farmís natural diversity from your private verandah or enjoy a refreshing swim in our rim-flow pool. For nature lovers, a short walk round the farm dam, with its viewing deck, is pure escapism amidst the bustle of bird life. And, in season, an appreciation of farm life comes from witnessing the harvesting of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes and apricots in the adjoining orchards.
Rosendal Spa's focus on wellness seems wholly appropriate in such a sublime setting. Choose from an extensive menu of body and facial therapies, including body wraps, massages, cleansing treatments, manicures and pedicures, and treat yourself to the nourishing properties of the TheraVine product range used. Locally produced, TheraVine has, as its essence, grape-derived ingredients, rich in antioxidants and entirely fitting for use on our historic farm. For brides-to-be, our destination spa creates an ideal setting in which to prepare for your special day.
Indulged with the beautiful setting it seems only natural to savour the tantalisingly fresh flavours available at our on-site Restaurant. With much-lauded French chef David Godin at the helm, you are guaranteed a superb gastronomic experience, be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, all of which are served daily. Our well-priced menu ensures that there is something for everyone, with an emphasis on honest food, masterfully prepared.
With a choice of seating either on our deck overlooking the dam or in the Restaurant, with a log fire welcoming you in winter, you are assured of a relaxed yet refined dining experience that will leave you coming back for more.
Central to time spent at Rosendal is a visit to our cellar, where guests and day-trippers alike can enjoy free tastings of our selection of award-winning premium wines, for sale only at the farm or by direct order. Handcrafted from selected grape cultivars, our wines are produced under four appealing ranges: Rosendal Breeze, Rosendal, Rosendal Barony and Rosendal Reserve. Dinner guests may also request our food-and-wine pairing experience, facilitated by one of our knowledgeable staff members, all of whom are passionate about our wines.
