Cascade Country Manor, in the Paarl Wine Valley is known for being a luxurious accommodation jewel, tacked on the slope of the Hawekwa Mountains. The Manor House and the joined buildings are surrounded by an olive grove and the calming sound of flowing water from the nearby cascades are the background soundtrack that accompanies the overall stay.

The secluded location and the generous public spaces, combined with an on-site spa and loads of relaxing activities, makes a leisurely, relaxed getaway.

The recent addition to the features offered by the hotel is the Riverside Massage and Picnic Boma area. It adds an outdoor experience like no other to their wellness focused spa.

Routed in the pre-colonial era and originated in the languages spoken in the African Great Lakes, a Boma is a men made enclosure off the natural surroundings created for gathering of animals or people.

The Cascade Manor House Boma is structured on both sides of a live water stream and include a massage gazebo for two, a picnic table and a lounge area, all gently laid between exciting vegetation,  connected by small wooden bridges and defined with a series of low wood and stone fences.

The booking and use of this part of the hotel culminates in an exclusive 2 hour private experience for two. It includes a full, one hour head and back massage and the serving of a picnic delight thereafter.

Cascade Manor house is well positioned to be a base for a few days’ excursion to explore the Cape Winelands. They offer a variety of accommodation options for either a romantic or a family holiday, classic and deluxe rooms, some with a direct exit to the English garden that dress the gentle slopes of the hotel.

The hotel’s restaurant serves a continental breakfast buffet and a daily lunch between 11am- 6pm. Day visitors to the spa are welcome to add a meal to their visit. Dinner is a 3 course set menu to be arranged in advance. On top of using local, fresh products, the wine list includes an exclusive Paarl Wine Route range of the smaller, lesser known brands in the area, an opportunity to discover some new and lesser known stars.

The hotel is surrounded by walking and mountain biking trails of different difficulty levels and is equipped with both an indoor and outdoor pool, making it a retreat for every season while the vast gardens, with manicured courts and the historic lounges perfect for private events and celebrations.
