Kievits Kroon Country Estate
Kievits Kroon is the winelands of Gauteng – where Cape Dutch architecture and Bushveld landscape meet to create a perfect country retreat.
On entering the estate I was impressed by the beautiful old Cape Dutch style buildings and felt as if I was in the Cape Winelands.
The estate is located just outside Pretoria and 45 minutes from Sandton.
I was greeted by Sonneyboy who ensured that I did not have to worry about the checking in process until I was relaxed in the Colonial style Library Bar with a welcome glass of Kievits Kroon MCC.
Featuring an award-winning spa, the estate also boasts excellent restaurants, bars and conference facilities, and a range of accommodation options.
I stayed in a VIP suite – an awesome little Cape Dutch style cottage, somewhat removed from the rest of the suites, offering me both great views and privacy.
The living/dining room furnishings were elegant and comfortable and there was a well-stocked table with various choices of teas, coffees and homemade biscuits.
The bathroom had a huge 2-person bath/Jacuzzi.
The comfortable bedroom was partitioned from the main area of the cottage by glass sliding doors
The signature restaurant, Granita, offers a seasonal menu of fine dining and wine pairing. I enjoyed their 6-course autumn dinner menu paired with an excellent selection of the country’s finest quality wines.
Breakfast at Kingsley’s Restaurant offers a sumptuous buffet spread, including fresh oysters and Kievits Kroon MCC on weekends.
Facilities include: large indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, swiss shower, steam room; cold plunge pool and Jacuzzi.
I enjoyed a superb 60 mins Winelands Signature massage treatment.
Kievits Kroon is the perfect place to simply relax and soak up a few sun rays at the pool, picnic under the trees or chill out at the spa.
