My husband and I stayed at La Residence for 3 nights in May. From the moment we pulled up at the gate to the time we left we were spoilt by the view, the accommodation and the wonderful service. Our room was the Frangipani Suite and it was stunning. I'll start with the view - overlooking our lovely courtyard (with peacocks, gorgeous kittens and the occasional springbok roaming by) to the vineyards with the mountains in the background. We had sunshine, cloud, rain and it was beautiful whatever the weather.
The suite was stunning - white marble with a bathroom to die for. The furnishings were all of the highest quality and despite being opulent were completely tasteful. It was quiet, very comfortable and we were left wanting for nothing.
The service was fantastic. I would particularly like to mention Ewan (the sommelier) who clearly loves his job and being with people. He was a delight and made our dinners there even more enjoyable.
I also enjoyed a hot stone massage (on a cold, rainy afternoon) which was fabulous as well.
Despite it being such a luxurious place to stay the ambience is relaxed and casual. The perfect combination.
Thank you all at La Residence for making our stay such a memorable one.
