The hotel opened in May 2010, with bright, spacious guest rooms and a popular outdoor terrace.

South Africa’s Balule Game Reserve—35,000 acres of former farmland traversed by the Olifants River.

Once a dark Victorian house, this national monument is now flooded with light, thanks to a renovation by its English and South African owners, who tore down walls and retrofitted period windows and doors.

With each of the 12 suites inspired by a different island—such as Antigua, Sicily and Zanzibar—you could come back to Tintswalo Atlantic over and over again, and have a dozen different experiences.

With its majestic coastal setting and elegant old-world interiors, the Twelve Apostles—sitting next to the 12 mountains known as the Apostles, and by Table Mountain National Park —seems primed for romance.

This property in the tony Constantia winelands dates back to the 1700s, but it was redone in 2012 with a distinctly modern sensibility. The 19 rooms have gilded mirrors, under-floor heating, impossibly soft robes, and plush seating, all the makings of a opulent but cozy retreat.

We ran a story on the opening of this historic Cape Dutch farm-hotel when I was working at Travel + Leisure back in 2009, and it always stuck in my mind as a place I'd like to see someday. So when I moved here last year, it was high on my list.

Bantry Bay is one of Cape Town's poshest suburbs, and this oceanfront hotel is its best address.

This historic manor dating back to 1713 is right in the heart of the town center, making it walking distance to Stellenbosch's quaint cafés, boutiques and galleries.
