We found this place rated No. 1 on TripAdvisor. What luck to find such a Gem. Without Covid-19, this place would have been packed with International Tourists. The immaculate attention to detail of the owners is something to see. Will be back

What a special place! Chere and Calvin, the new owners of Bloomestate, have experience managing luxury lodges. And it shows. Our every need was attended to. Chere, a qualified chef, treated us to many of her homemade goodies. Breakfast was exceptional and beautifully presented. The rooms are modern and comfortable, overlooking a tranquil pool area. Food choices in Swellendam abound. We chose takeouts in the evening and Chere arranged for us to eat in the leisure room at a candle-lit table she beautifully laid in front of a log fire. Our two nights were a real treat.

After being separated for a full year from my now fiancé (picked Bloomestate to pop the question) we decided to have a few days to ourselves. What a find Bloomestate was. From arrival to the morning we left we were left amazed. The hosts made us feel so welcome and provided us with a service you rarely find. The attention to detail, room, food and treatments left memories that will never fade. Definitely coming back in 2021

If I could give a higher rating I would! After nearly a year a part my now fiancè (yes we got engaged on the estate) and I opted for the romantic getaway package and boy did Bloomestate deliver. Gorgeous estate, beautiful rooms and the hosts made our entire experience out of this world, they are so attentive and really personalize every second there. The food is out of this world and the atmosphere leaves you rejuvinated and in love. We will be making this an annual getaway!
