FOR ME, HOL­I­DAYS IN­VOLVE A WHOLE LOT OF NOTH­ING. I LIKE PEACE, I LIKE QUIET AND, MOST OF ALL, I LIKE BE­ING ABLE TO QUIET MY MIND AND EN­JOY A MO­MENT OR TWO OF CALM – WHICH IS JUST WHAT YOU WILL FIND AT THE LIGHT HOUSE BOU­TIQUE SUITES IN PAARL.

AN­OTHER WORLD

Paarl, the big­gest town in the Cape Winelands, of­fers a myr­iad ac­tiv­i­ties for ev­ery type of trav­eller, from wine afi­ciona­dos and rooi­bos tea con­nois­seurs to those in­ter­ested in a croc­o­dile en­counter or two.A town filled with his­tory, Paarl can keep you busy from the start of your trip right to the end, but no visit to the town would be com­plete with­out a stay at The Light House Bou­tique Suites.

Lo­cated on a leafy green hill­side in sub­ur­ban Paarl, the white vista of this stylish house stands out starkly from its sur­round­ings. The duck-egg blue win­dow arches and shut­ters give The Light House a dis­tinctly Amer­i­can flavour, and it’s not hard to pic­ture it sur­rounded my man­i­cured

lawns in the af­flu­ent Hamp­tons area in up­state New York.

The dé­cor is what I like to de­scribe as “ef­fort­lessly chic”, with ev­ery sur­face oc­cu­pied by can­dles, bowls of fresh flow­ers, or­nate trin­kets and lovely fab­rics.

A SUITE FOR ANY TASTE

All of the suites atThe Light House of­fer guests a sanc­tu­ary of peace and calm, and in­clude all the mod­ern ameni­ties ex­pected at a lux­ury guest house, such as a won­der­fully com­fort­able bed, a spacious bath­room, a tele­vi­sion, mini-fridge, hair dryer, safe, tea sta­tion and free Wi-Fi.

The most in­ti­mate room at The Light House is aptly called “The Hamp­tons”.This blue-hued es­cape boasts un­com­pli­cated so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Its view of the Drak­en­stein Moun­tains guar­an­tees that guests will not want to leave the com­fort of this room.

The Afro Chic suite is an ode to our beloved con­ti­nent. Neu­tral tones pair with ac­cents of an­i­mal print and taste­ful splashes of colour to pro­vide the same kind of calm as the other suites, but with an added touch of play­ful­ness that re­flects the soul of Africa.

The Man­hat­tan Suite mir­rors the de­sign and in­no­va­tion of one of the great­est cities in the world, New York. The un­com­pli­cated de­sign aes­thetic shows off the Art Deco in­flu­ences in the theme’s cos­mopoli­tan na­ture.

The May­fair Suite sees the el­e­gance of Georgian England paired with the most lux­u­ri­ous of mod­ern de­sign trends.The room is ac­cented with an­tique metallic and soft grey tones.The op­u­lence and glam­our of this suite lends an even greater sense of ro­mance to The Light House ex­pe­ri­ence.

The Bed­ford Manor Suite is the big­gest suite on the prop­erty and is ideal for lovers and new­ly­weds – its main fo­cus is very much on the ma­hogany four-poster bed.The dé­cor is a mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the tra­di­tional Cape Dutch home.The clas­sic “olden-day” feel of the dé­cor trans­ports guests to an­other time – which gives you and your part­ner a lovely sense of seclu­sion in lux­u­ri­ous com­fort.

The Light House Bou­tique Suites pro­vides vis­i­tors to Paarl with true rest and re­lax­ation. Pack your bags, and pre­pare to recharge your bat­ter­ies like never be­fore. Happy hol­i­day­ing!
