The Cape Floristic Region - where Grootbos is found - is the smallest of the world's six floral kingdoms, and found only here, in South Africa's western Cape, a couple of hours from Cape Town. A region of extraordinary biodiveristy diversity, it is home to over 9, 000 plant species, of which 69 percent are endemic. Grootbos offers 'flower safaris' to discover this unique floral kingdom. But if flowers aren't you're thing - or you;ve been clever enough to book for a few days, then there's some very special stuff happening off shore. This is one of the best places in the world for land based whale watching, or you can jump on a boat for a trip to view the marine 'Big 5', Southern White Whales, Great White Sharks, African Penguins, Bottlenose Dolphins and Cape Fur Seals. And the accommodation - which wins countless awards for its environmental and social credentials, is discreet boutique luxury, blending in with its very special landscape.

Heated marble floors, bed coverings you simply melt into, world-class dining and a private nature reserve of unparalleled beauty are the things I remember most about my stay at Grootbos. Oh, and that this is where I first went diving with great white sharks in the waters just off Gaansbai! This place is beyond idyllic. It is pure luxury and a slice of heaven on Earth.

Grootbos offers the perfect setting for a private weekend away from the city. It was one of our birthdays and one of the chefs turned up at our door with a surprise birthday cake that was incredibly yummy.
You end up not wanting to leave your room with amazing views and comfortable amenities.
Food service is superb.
