Grande Roche - Paarl

Nestled at the foot of the magnificent Paarl Rock is a small, luxury hotel like no other. It is a place where history interacts with modern comforts...where the atmosphere of a bygone era brings a sense of gracious, unhurried living.

The only South African member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, it is a place where history intersects with a funky modernity. It is a place where the gentle rhythms of a working fruit and wine farm are a short walk away from a bustling country town.

Feel a sense of belonging as you explore centuries-old buildings and the rich biodiversity of the Paarl nature reserve.
