Lothian House is located 30 minutes from Cape Town Airport. The house is similar to an Aman style resort ,situated on an award winning wine estate, located in the Kogelberg World Heritage Biosphere reserve, home to one of the most diverse ecology's on the planet.
The house is an architecturally triumph, it was recently completed to the highest European finishes, providing unsurpassed levels of comfort and luxury and style blended with privacy and security, all stunningly nestled into beautifuly designed and manicured flower gardens, lawns and fruit laden orchards, overlooking a picture postcard river on one side and the expansive Applethwaite Lake and Lothian award winning vineyard on the other. Every beautifully designed bedroom has an equally luxurious ensuite bathroom and private sundeck- every suite has views to die for.
The house and grounds feature every conceivable amusement from our stables, to jet ski's, ski-boat and paddle boards. Perhaps some fly-fishing on the lake; that is the envy of every fisherman in the cape (keep in mind you have a 1.5 km lake to amuse yourself in/on. Swings/slides, and trampolines (both water and land based) await the young ones, to soccer/croquet lawn or tennis/hiking/gym for the more energetic .
There is a 25m eternity edged heated pool, 8 person Jacuzzi ,fully kitted out Gym, and Sauna ; an in-pool bar, multiple dining areas, including a lily pad on the rivers edge - replete with fire pit , a favourite place to enjoy cocktails as the sun goes down. We have plenty to amuse the adults too, and plenty of places , to just relax and enjoy being with your friends , or away cuddled up in a quiet nook with book or parner -as the mood takes you.
The amenities are too many to list, but to name a few of the more eclectic :Wake-boarding, Air-Hockey, Table-Tennis to multiple well stocked Cocktail bars ,and the latest in-house Entertainment Systems, you have plenty to do regardless of the time or weather.
The staff are available to pamper the most discerning guests upon request, but can also make themselves almost invisible. The staff are truly brilliant, and match the quality/excellence of the house. We suggest starting the morning perhaps with a private Yoga teacher on your private deck or perhaps with a group of friends, or perhaps a set of Tennis- followed by a massage,
