Set on a 19th-century wine estate on the Constantiaberg mountain, this small boutique hotel provides secluded accommodations about 20 minutes from Cape Town’s city center. Surrounded by vineyards and landscaped gardens, the 16 guest rooms are spread out among several Dutch Colonial—style cottages, most containing four-poster beds, floral patterns, and antique armchairs. All rooms have private patios with views of the vineyards and outdoor pool, with Table Mountain in the distance. The property also has a spa and three acclaimed restaurants, including the French-Asian La Colombe, named the 12th best restaurant in the world by San Pellegrino in 2010.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
