Indulge in Opulence: The Hazendal By Newmark – A Posh Oasis of Modern Luxury and Historic Charm

In a dazzling display of posh pizzazz, The Hazendal has flung wide open its doors, sending the masses into a frenzy of excitement. This monumental bash was marked by a ribbon-cutting extravaganza, set against the backdrop of South Africa’s Hazendal Wine Estate in Stellenbosch—a place so picturesque it makes your Instagram feed jealous.


This hotshot addition to the Cape Winelands accommodation circus is a sizzling fusion of sleek modernity and historic Cape Dutch flair. The exterior of The Hazendal, dressed to the nines in classic whites, blacks, and charcoals, smoothly blends with the existing estate architecture. They’ve basically achieved the architectural version of a fashion runway—a minimalist yet drop-dead gorgeous facade.



But hold your horses before you judge a building by its color palette; take a step inside, and you’re hit with a visual riot of vibrant artworks, natural skylights, and indoor flower beds. It’s like walking into an oasis of fancy, where every nook and cranny screams, “Look at me, I’m fancy!”


The wizards behind The Hazendal didn’t just slap some paint on the walls and call it a day. Oh no, they’ve meticulously pimped out each of the 34 rooms, making sure they’re unique and loaded with all the bells and whistles a modern human could possibly desire. The in-house Marvol Gallery steals the spotlight, showcasing the hip and happening talent of South African artists on the rise. Think Smart TVs, pod coffee machines, air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, and bath products that scream luxury—courtesy of Africology. And for those who can’t agree on bedtime logistics, fear not, for rooms can be set up in twin or king configurations. Because compromise is for the weak, right?


Now, onto the Superior and Luxury Rooms, all 31 of them. These bad boys open up onto patios with swanky modern swing chairs, providing views of either the pool deck or the majestic Stellenbosch mountains. And if you’re feeling extra bougie, the two spacious suites come with their own private jacuzzis. Because why not turn your stay into a hot tub time machine, right?


But wait, there’s more! Brace yourselves for the pièce de résistance—the 122 sqm Presidential Suite. Decked out with plush couches, velvet chairs, and vintage-style carpets, this suite is the Beyoncé of accommodations. The lounge and dining area, with wood-paneled walls and contemporary chandeliers, scream “I’m fabulous!” A king-size bed with panoramic views of a lake surrounded by the Bottelary Hills and Simonsig Mountain Range is basically a vacation for your eyeballs. And of course, there’s a deck with a patio lounge set and a private jacuzzi because, well, why wouldn’t there be?



Now, let’s talk about The Hazendal’s beating heart—the shady central courtyard. This sanctuary boasts a heated swimming pool and stylish pergolas, creating a spot so posh you’ll be sipping your imaginary cocktail in no time. It’s the perfect place to soak up the Wineland’s sunshine and pretend your life is always this fabulous and carefree.


Oh, and lest we forget, The Hazendal has a spa that’s basically a historical-meets-modern dreamland. Picture this: farm buildings mingling with sleek extensions, double volume ceilings, and high glass windows. It’s the kind of space that’s as soothing as the finest South African wine, and that’s saying something. So, there you have it—The Hazendal, where opulence meets outrageous, and your Instagram game gets a serious upgrade.
