Why stay here?
Bloomestate is a 6.5-acre refuge with all the conveniences, balancing a crisp and clean decor and contemporary architecture with open and natural spaces. Each of the seven garden suites has a spacious bathroom, walk-in shower, bath, a private terrace and calming garden views.
A dock by the lake, a secluded jacuzzi, a saltwater pool, strategically-placed hammocks, a pampering day spa...Every element of the guesthouse has been crafted to create a soothing and natural experience.
Nestled in the foothills of the Overberg mountains on the fringe of the historic town Swellendam, Bloomestate is the perfect home base from which to experience the region's highlights: whale-watching on the Indian Ocean, wine-sipping in the estates of the Robertson Wine Valley, wandering the trails of the Langeberg Mountain range, communing with the wildlife of the Marloth, the Bontebok National Park and De Hoop Nature reserve.
To help sustain both the estate and the surrounding natural beauty, we strive to use as many locally-made or Fair Trade products as possible. We serve local fruits and organic veg, use energy-efficient lighting, and scrub with earth-friendly cleaning products. The hot water is solar- heated and the waste is composted. Imbedded in the community, we also take great pride in supporting local initiatives such as the Swellendam Bursary Fund.
