Golf & Spa Your Way to Tranquility: An African Getaway
GOLFING GETAWAY PACKAGE AT CAPE TOWN’S STEENBERG: LONG HOLES, WATERING HOLES, WINING, DINING & PAMPERING
CAPE TOWN, South Africa Steenberg Hotel, voted the number one luxury hotel in Africa, has announced a “GOLF & SPA PACKAGE” that includes accommodations at the five-star hotel, golfing, gourmet dining, award-winning wining and glorious pampering.
The package is available from now through September 30, 2012. Rates per person sharing per two-night package start at $614 until March 31, 2012 and $460 per person sharing per two-night package from April 1 until September 30, 2012.
The “GOLF & SPA PACKAGE” offers an excellent-value golfing getaway for a foursome.
It includes: one round of golf per person per day; luxury accommodations for two nights; a delicious English breakfast each morning; one three-course, set-menu dinner for each person at Catharina’s Restaurant on the evening of arrival; one wine tasting per person at the Steenberg Winery; and a 50-minute “Golfer’s Massage” per person at Steenberg’s Ginko Wellness Spa. Complimentary transfers to restaurants and shops within a three-mile radius complete this package. The offer is valid until September 30, 2012.
Steenberg offers the ideal setting for avid golfers to indulge in an idyllic getaway in the luxurious surrounds of the Constantia Valley’s oldest farm, while spending quality time on the greens at one of the country’s most highly acclaimed golf courses. The 18-hole Peter Matkovich championship Steenberg Golf Course is distinguished by its unique natural terrain and environmental diversity, and was designed along the contours of the original farm, optimizing the natural features and hazards of the estate.
With four different tees, it is accessible to all – from championship to junior level, and offers players one of the best golf course views in the country. Known for its hybrid plan, it offers traditionalists the opportunity to ‘bump and run’ (a rare shot in South Africa) in the rough around the greens, and to meet the challenges of strategically placed sand pits and waterways. Seasoned golfers will be delighted with the par-three, a not-so-short 14th hole featuring the longest green in Africa at 250 feet!
Golfers may want to utilize the facilities within the recently renovated Clubhouse, or pop into the fully stocked Pro Shop, where a range of golfing accessories and mementoes can be purchased. Sharing the Steenberg grounds is the famed fine dining restaurant Catharina’s, as well as the Steenberg Winery complex, an exquisitely styled, interactive wine and food destination, where guests may linger at the Wine Tasting Bar, recline on couches in the Tasting Lounge, or savor sophisticated bistro fare at trendy cellar door restaurant Bistro Sixteen82. Rounding off the world-class Steenberg experience is the luxurious Ginkgo Spa, where pampering treatments include a relaxing specialized Golfer’s Massage.
Steenberg was picked as the number one luxury hotel by Trip Advisor 2011 and as the number one hotel in Africa and the Middle East 2011 by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.
