Delaire Graff estate lodges were designed by an Irish born, extremely talented interior designer with an architectural education – David Collins. Best recognised for his luxury restaurant and bar interiors that can be found all over London and in many places abroad.
Opened in April 2010, the Delaire Graff estate lodges and spa sit within the Helshoogte mountain pass outside cape town. Created for Laurence Graff Obe, owner of the Delaire Graff estate, the design of each lodge is inspired by the local cape Dutch architecture with a palette that takes inspiration from the backdrop of the wine lands.

The hotel comprises a series of ten lodges that feature a collection of furniture designed by David Collins studio and fabricated locally in South Africa. The Delaire Graff estate is the winner of the “best grape estate” from wallpaper* magazine and was included in the “best new hotels 2011” by travel & leisure.
