Constantia is an affluent suburb located just a few minutes from the centre of the city of Cape Town. This suburb has been historically considered as one of the most prestigious regions in the country. The suburb lies near the foot of the mountain Constantiaberg. The region is known as a tourist hot-spot thanks to the centuries old wine estates. To add to the experience, Constantia also boasts of a number of fine-dining restaurants that will make your food and wine experience worth your while.

Steenberg holds the distinction of being the oldest farm in the picturesque Constantia Valley. The Cape’s first farm, established in 1682, has come a long way from its humble beginnings. Roughly 30 minutes from the bustling heart of Cape Town, Steenberg is a destination steeped in heritage.

Steenberg Hotel & Spa offers exquisite hospitality with spectacular views and plenty of history, all wrapped in understated luxury and discreet, personalised service. Exceptional cuisine at two signature restaurants caters for all tastes, from contemporary dining at Catharina’s Restaurant to more relaxed bistro-style fare and tapas at the popular Bistro Sixteen82.

An outstanding winery, producing some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc and Méthode Cap Classique in South Africa, along with other celebrated wines, and an 18-hole championship golf course, make Steenberg a complete leisure destination in idyllic Constantia.
