Karen Roos’s design touch has elevated this traditional farmhouse to something truly magnificent. Contrasting the historic, rough outbuildings with clean, contemporary elements, she’s brought the cottages into the 21st century in style. But her influence doesn’t end here: this juxtaposition between old and new extends to the restaurant, the spa, and the main hotel building.
The restaurants operate with a “farm-to-fork” philosophy, creating delicious dishes using their own produce. Their main outlet, Babel, is a triumph. Housed in the old cow shed, it’s a beautiful blend of Cape Dutch architecture and contemporary glass walls. From the enormous breakfast spread to the salads, it sets the bar for sustainable gastronomy.
