LEISURE

This hotel abounds in fun and incredible activities to make sure that every hour of your holiday is spent in absolute happiness, whether your idea of a good time is learning about art and wine or partying by the pool followed by a day of recovery in a conveniently located spa. Outside of the resort’s action-packed walls, however, there is an even bigger list of things to do from horse trips along the beach to helicopter tours of the magnificent city of Cape Town. If nothing else, Capetonians are a friendly bunch who are always up for showing visitors a good time so don’t forget to stick your head into the local bars and make new friends.

Massage those worries away

As a further testament to the Ellerman philosophy of personalised and five-star service, the house spa is situated on the first floor of one of the private villas. The area is surrounded by a tranquil water garden of indigenous plants, with soothing glimpses of the ocean, creating the ideal atmosphere of serenity and relaxation.

The small team of expert therapists provides a selective menu of rejuvenating experiences that are designed to soothe, relax and restore balance. With a double treatment room for signature couple massages, the state-of-the-art techniques and rituals use local inspiration as well as world-wide influences to create its unique menu.

Wine not?

Ellerman House Wine Gallery is a truly exceptional sight that any guests of this hotel have to see. The subject of wine is one that is important at this accommodation, and as a testament to this, there is a 7500-bottle collection of South African vintages that range from rare collectables to up-and-coming vineyard produces. These bottles are displayed in what can only be described as a work of art that doubles as a wine wrack.

These wines are not only here to look pretty though – once they are deemed to be at peak maturity, the bottles are displayed on the wine list or opened for exclusive tasting sessions that can be bought by the glass. Guests can also learn about the heritage of South Africa’s renowned winemaking region as they embark on an in-depth and interactive journey from grape to glass.

Soak up the culture

Part of Ellerman House’s art and soul is its collection of masterpieces that have become so bountiful that they line the walls of the hotel from top to bottom, setting it apart from every other hotel in the area. The collection is estimated to cover more than two centuries from the 1800s to 2009 and contain works by the likes of Lionel Smith and Thomas Bowler. As the gallery is so extensive in number, there is an in-house art guide Talita who is available to conduct private tours for guests interested in learning more about the pieces.
