Owner-managed and blissfully private, Majeka House
is an ideal base from which to explore the historical town of Stellenbosch with its interesting shops, galleries, museums, and alfresco café culture.
Numerous famous vineyards and award-winning restaurants, dotted along the Stellenbosch wine route, are within striking distance. This prime location combines with luxurious accommodation, thoughtful service, a sophisticated bar and restaurant, a professionally run spa and spacious grounds to create what is undoubtedly one of the most stylish boltholes in the Cape Winelands.
All contain thoughtful extras, such as comfy Crocs instead of hotel slippers, a Lavazza espresso machine, Wi-Fi internet and a DVD player with a wide choice of movies. The spacious and cleverly designed en suite bathrooms are fragrant with local toiletries made with indigenous plant extracts.
In Makaron Restaurant, a stylish, contemporary interior has been created using a clever mix of repurposed and recycled furniture complemented by modern statement pieces. The result is a visually stimulating space that offers extreme comfort and encourages complete immersion in the dining experience. The overall effect is an understated feeling of luxury.
Airy and light, the restaurant overlooks lush gardens and leads onto a sheltered terrace for alfresco dining. It is in this stimulating setting that our Kitchen team presents their menu of fresh, modern cuisine grounded in the French classics. Our Kitchen team has enormous respect for the quality and provenance of each ingredient that comes into their kitchen and take pride in working with ethical producers and suppliers who share their philosophy. Complementing Makaron Restaurant is M Bar, an inviting lounge-style bar with the decadent ambience of a Parisian salon and an enticing menu of “floating food”, as the chefs call it, that is ideal for sharing and for pairing with a cocktail, beer or glass of chilled wine.
The in-house Majeka Spa is the perfect foil to all these gourmet pleasures. Anti-ageing facials and deeply relaxing massages are the order of the day in the three treatment rooms. Use of the sauna, steam room and hydrotherapy features in the heated indoor swimming pool are complimentary for all hotel guests. The pool has powerful massage jets and a water current to swim or walk against. The spa also offers salt crystal therapy on a specialised Himalayan salt crystal bed. It’s a non-invasive, deeply relaxing therapeutic treatment that combines the healing properties of salt crystals with the therapeutic benefits of light therapy. All in all, it makes for the sort of hotel where guests don’t want to spend all their time out and about in the Winelands – they want simply to remain within the confines of Majeka House and enjoy all the expected and unexpected luxuries that its gracious hospitality has to offer.

Majeka House Activities:
Stellenbosch is fast becoming the gourmet capital of South Africa with a number of its restaurants having featured consistently in Eat Out Top 10 in the last few years. As our guest, we would happily try to make reservations for you.
Stellenbosch provides a superb venue for golfing with De Zalze (3 minutes drive), Erinvale (15 minutes drive - Somerset West), Devonvale (15 minutes drive) and Pearl Valley (35 minutes drive - Paarl) close by.
Stellenbosch has a wonderful array of interesting shops and galleries - we would be remiss if we did not mention Karoo Classics, The Red Teapot and the Rupert Gallery.
