The Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa in Somerset West, Western Cape – a member hotel of Preferred Hotels & Resorts – has been added to the brand’s prestigious L.V.X Collection. This is a collection of hotels known for offering the ultimate in upscale luxury, sophisticated style and exclusive service in the most desirable destinations around the globe.
“We are extremely proud to be part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts family and to be the first hotel in sub-Saharan Africa associated with the L.V.X Collection of hotels and resorts. We feel it’s a testament to our commitment to our guests, their comfort and optimising the quality of their stay,” says Craig Seaman, CEO of Index Hotels.
Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa has a rich history dating back to the 1700s when the original Cape Dutch-style farmstead was built. The property opened as a hotel in 1994. It will undergo refurbishment over the course of the next few months.
“The project revolves around amplifying the sensory experience that a stay at Erinvale encompasses. The 56 rooms are being refurbished and, by early September, they’ll have beautiful new finishings and ultra-luxurious 600-thread-count linen,” says Debbie Lee Cockrell, General Manager of Erinvale Estate Hotel and Spa.
“There are also plans to upgrade the hotel’s meeting rooms with the best-in-its-class audio visual equipment, which will facilitate hybrid meetings. Plans are also under way to build a number of new facilities, including an all-new wellness centre and spa, due to open to guests towards the end of 2023,” Cockrell adds.
