bloomestate is a 6.5-acre eco-friendly refuge, balancing sylish decor and contemporary architecture with open, natural spaces. Each of the seven garden suites have spacious bathrooms, walk-in showers, baths, and a private terrace with calming garden views.
Every element of the guesthouse has been crafted to create a soothing and natural experience - the dock at the lake, a secluded jacuzzi, saltwater pool, strategically-placed hammocks, and a pampering day spa...
Bloomestate's breakfasts have become a little famous - with interesting dishes inspired by our worldwide guests that meet the highest culinary standards.
On request guests can order lunch or small platters to share at any one of the relaxing spots on the estate.
Nestled in the foothills of the Overberg mountains on the fringe of the historic town Swellendam, bloomestate is the ideal base from which to experience the region's highlights: whale-watching on the Indian Ocean, wine-sipping in the estates of the Robertson Wine Valley, wandering the trails of the Langeberg Mountain range, communing with the wildlife of the Marloth, the Bontebok National Park and De Hoop Nature reserve.
Within strolling distance there are two restaurants, with lovely open terraces and in town there is a choice of local and international, high standard restaurants.
To help sustain both the estate and the surrounding natural beauty, we strive to use as many locally-made or Fair Trade products as possible. We serve local fruits and organic veg, use energy-efficient lighting, and scrub with earth-friendly cleaning products. The hot water is solar- heated and the waste is composted. Imbedded in the community, we also take great pride in supporting local initiatives such as the Swellendam Bursary Fund.
