Delaire Graff Estate, South Africa

While planning my upcoming trip to South Africa, I came across this marvelous resort built by Laurence Graff (founder of Graff diamonds) and decorated by David Collins Studio from London.  I am sure they have a fabulous jewelry vault somewhere in this luxurious resort overlooking the Helshootge Mountain Pass...maybe I'll get to take a peek while I am there!

The Delaire Graff Resort is one of the leading restaurant and boutique hotels anywhere in the world.  It has ten lodges and a spa set within a larger wine estate property in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

While staying at the resort, you have the priviledge of spending time with an acclaimed collection of South African paintings and sculptures by Sydney Kumalo, Dylan Lewis, Fred Schimmel, Durant Sihlali, Deborah Bell, Anton Smit, and a couple of Kentridge's.

Each lodge is decorated with custom designed furniture pieces exclusively made by David Collins Studio for the Delaire.

Each lodge has its own private plunge pool.

The views overlooking the Mountain Pass and vineyards are breathtaking.  Find some time to start planning your getaway here!
