When it comes to ro­man­tic stays, the lux­ury suites at Jor­dan tick ev­ery box. Park­ing next to our se­cluded suite, sur­rounded by lush gar­dens, we were greeted by the birds. Look­ing out onto vine­yards and hills, the lux­ury suite is spa­cious and chic, with sim­ple, clean decor, an ex­tralength, king-size bed, a stand­alone bath, a fire­place and huge so­fas on which to laze or watch TV. Stack­ing glass doors open onto a shel­tered ter­race with two comfy chairs, a ta­ble and a lounger – the per­fect place to crack the ice-cold, com­ple­men­tary bot­tle of wine that we found in the fridge. Other de­tails were a Ne­spresso maker and ‘real milk’; both, for me, in­di­ca­tors of the class of a place. A wine tast­ing and break­fast are in­cluded, but if you want to dine in your tem­po­rary home, there’s meal ser­vice from The Bak­ery. In-room spa treat­ments, a fine-din­ing restau­rant (open Thurs­day to Satur­day), ro­man­tic pic­nics, cel­lar tours and vine­yard walks com­plete the list of spoils. Jor­dan also is a gate­way to the su­perb moun­tain-bike trails of the Bot­te­lary Hills Con­ser­vancy.
