Over one hundred wine farms are within reach from Spier, and some of the country’s best wineries can be found here. Within 40 minutes of Cape Town, the estate is convenient and accessible.
6 beautiful courtyards, each with their own swimming pool, provide the setting around which the deluxe suites are arranged. The warm toned buildings contain spacious suites, each emphasizing rich colours, rustic wood, classic antique style furniture and modern en-suite bathrooms. Furnished porches or balconies offer a quiet spot to enjoy a drink and relax.
The ideal Winelands resort for families, Spier’s lawns and pond constitute tons of space for kids to enjoy, and the separation of suites give plenty of privacy for families and couples.
Enjoy a la carte dining at the hotel restaurant, and sample excellent tapas at Eight Restaurant, along with the estate’s beautiful wines. For more informal dining, grab a picnic basket from Eight’s deli, fill it with items of your choice, and relax under the trees around the estate.

Spier itself offers a range of activities suitable for both kids and adults. Take a Segway tour of the estate – a fun way to explore the vineyards, with a short training session and then a ride through the botanical garden and onto the rolling vineyards.
Kids and adults will love the eagle encounters; Spier’s raptor sanctuary houses owls and eagles of various species, and allows petting and interactions. Attend one of the daily falconry shows and learn more about the rehabilitation of the sanctuary’s fascinating birdlife.
Spier has a great kids’ programme, wherein children can take part in pizza and cookie making, environmental education and farm walks, among other activities.
