TO THE LIGHT HOUSE
My husband and I recently spent a weekend at The Light House Boutique Suites in Paarl, and boy did it take some convincing to get me to leave. We’d been invited for their G&Tea Experience, which involved a distillation demonstration by Wilderer Gin, followed by gin cocktails and afternoon tea. We stayed in the Bedford Manor suite, which has a mahogany four-poster bed, a reading nook where you can easily while away an afternoon and a little balcony with a view of the mountains.
It was a weekend of five-star service, gin and bubbly sipping, and eating scones slathered in cream – how does one go back to normal life after that?
The G&Tea weekends are set to become a regular event, so be sure to ask when the next one is when you’re booking a room. (Maybe for Valentine’s Day?) Darryl and Hendrik will take good care of you, regardless!
