Resort Summary

Embraced by history, surrounded by the majestic Hottentots Holland Mountains and neighbouring the magnificent Erinvale Golf Course, the Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa provides distinctive & captivating hospitality.

The Erinvale Estate Spa offers a range of rejuvenating facials and massages, body treatments such as body bronzing, body wraps and additional treatments such as tints, manicures, pedicures and waxing are available. Spa facilities include Four treatment rooms, a steam room, an indoor heated whirlpool and outdoor pool, a sun deck and relaxation area.

Guests at the hotel can make the most of the sporting facilities while enjoying the outdoors by playing a leisurely game of tennis (by arrangement at the neighboring Erinvale Golf Estate) or swimming lengths in the outdoor pool. The rose garden is also well worth a visit whilst meandering through the tranquil gardens.

Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa is steeped in history, but the natural evolution that gradually transformed it from a modest Cape Dutch-style farmstead dating back to the 1700s into the elegant four-star boutique hotel of today has preserved the rich heritage of this property. Guests driving onto the grounds immediately notice the majestic, towering oaks that have silently stood their ground for generations.

The Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa was established in November 1994. David Gant, from the neighbouring Lourensford Estate, decided to develop the Erinvale property into a golfing residential estate. The land where the hotel stands was sold separately to Peter Baragwanath, who subsequently developed the existing building into the hotel.

The hotel opened its doors on 1 May 1995. It has always been privately owned and was bought by Xavier McAuliffe, an Irishman who purchased the hotel from Mr Baragwanath in June 1999. The hotel was sold by Mr McAuliffe to Louis Group Hotels, Spas & Vineyards in November 2007.
