We arrived at Rosendal after a pleasant drive from Cape Town. On our way, we stopped for cap classique and wine tasting at Graham Beck (My favorite cap classique!) We had booked the spa at Rosendal for a few treatments when we arrived at 3 in the afternoon and enjoyed the manicure and tinting and shaping of eyebrows. After the spa treatments, we had wine tasting in the cellars, resulting in buying some bottles with us home. We had a marvelous dinner with excellent food and wine. The next day some of us took a jog to a wine farm close by and others had spa treatments and later tanning by the pool. The view from the pool by sunset was breathtaking. The rooms are cozy and modern and the staff is friendly and helpful. I have already schedule my next Rosendal visit for January 2012!
