The 60-minute drive from Joburg is worth it for tea served in a lush tree-filled garden accompanied by the soothing sounds of running water from the pond. A luxury five-star boutique hotel De Hoek’s setting is remarkable, and instantly melts your city cares away. On the seasonal menu is a generous and tasty selection of finger sandwiches and sweet and savoury pastries. The chef has a light hand so you get to enjoy a wide range of treats. The scones are top-notch and served with homemade jam and your booking includes a glass of bubbles. For the ultimate treat, stay overnight.
