At the foot of the Karoo lies the Gariep Dam, where the staff of the de Stijl Gariep Hotel looks forward to welcoming you.
The former Gariep Hotel has entered into a new era and the name de Stijl accentuates the city chic that is both visible in the design and the atmosphere of this gem.
An eagles eye view over the majestic Gariep Dam allows you to drift away amidst the peaceful ambiance that prevails.
Gariep Dam is in the centre of South Africa, roughly 700km from Johannesburg to the North.
800km from Cape Town to the South, 800km from Durban and 500km from Port Elizabeth and East London on the N1 and R58.
this makes the Gariep Dam a favorite halfway stopover for holidaymakers from Gauteng on their way to either to either the Eastern or the Western Cape.
Gariep is also lucky to be on the shores of the largest inland water mass in South Africa making it a great spot for both water sports and adventure.
The greater lake Gariep region has an abundance of culture and recent history relating to the Great Trek and Anglo Boer War.
There are several significant sites in the area including Colesberg, Bethulie and Norvals Point. We have a very unique golf adventure on request.
Here at De Stijl we are proudly Karoo. We use Karoo produce where possible - organic, fresh and local is what we believe in.
This belief is what makes our food unique and as tasty and as special as it is.
Our chefs are passionate about the area and are always on the look out for new ideas and ingredients, so relax, join us on a journey through the Karoo and the best it has to offer.
