  • Amazing Stay

    We stayed at Babylonstoren for 4 nights on our honeymoon and I cannot wait to return. We felt really at home here – it was like adult camp with great food and wine. The rooms and spaces around the property were so well appointed – true attention to detail. So many nooks and crannies and landscapes to explore. We loved biking around the property every evening before dinner.
    Thank you for creating such a special place!
