South Africa is one of the world’s most visited countries and receives millions of travelers each year, some visiting for tourism purpose while some simply make their way to the country to have fun in the form of tourism and site seeing.
Whatever reason it is for someone visiting South Africa, one of the most important factors and things that must be considered and put into the trip planning is where to sleep while in the rainbow nation.
Very often tourists and travelers spend time searching for the right place to lay their heads in the city hosting them.
For tourists visiting the city of Cape Winelands in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, one of the best places to take abode is the Babylonstoren, a historical location filled with natural environment yet with a touch of modern class and luxury.
Historically, Babylonstoren was an old Dutch farm, the oldest for that matter, established by an Afrikaans farming family in the 18th century. The farm even though is still very much intact, a greater part of the facility has been turned into a modern world class 5-star hotel.
Today the part of the farm that grew crops has been converted into beautiful natural gardens that produce fruits and vegetables for the hotel built on the property. The grand 3.5 hectare farm has become some sort of tourist attraction due to its colourful and beautiful appearance which usually attracts hotel guests to get closer and take a walk through it.
Aside the 3.5 hectare garden, there are other major attractions at the farm-dubbed hotel all of which are centred around a green vegetative policy. This includes the Juicery, the Greenhouse Restaurant, the Healing Garden and Tea Ceremony and the Spice Garden.
Interior-wise, facilities of the hotel are up there with the best in the world, boasting of breathtaking luxuries that only few can dream.
While the farm-hotel may look too expensive due to its sheer grandness, luxury and exquisite internal attractions, it surprisingly comes at a much cheaper rate compared to other five star hotels, making it a great choice for visiting tourists who would like to spend the next few days in a place of luxury.
