Neat, quiet, elegant, sophisticated and regal, Morrells is pure magic.
This palatial property boasts romance and lends itself so effortlessly to a world filled with splendor and glamour. There’s something oh-so-special about Morrells… it’s not just another regular boutique hotel, but rather a grand memory, an unforgettable experience cemented with a delicious cacophony of tranquility and harmony.
Joburgers, there’s no need to escape hundreds of kilometers abroad. Rather opt to getaway around the corner for a weekend and escape those city woes. We were invited to spend the night and a fairytale ensued. We were booked in the honeymoon suite, which oozes romance and country style enchantment. Expect vintage charm, spacious rooms equipped with one of kind pieces, reading nooks and gorgeous Victorian baths.
There are two parts of accommodation – either inside the farmhouse or the manor house. Our room was nestled in the farmhouse, and we couldn’t imagine anywhere safer. Built in the 1800s and tucked under the olive orchards, the venue is mesmerizing. With a flirtation of pink hydrangeas to the left and a courtship of roses to the right, you’re captured by the surrounding beauty – which is certainly one of this locations greatest assets.
The dreamiest element of this property has to be the luxe spa. The spa is intimate, reminiscent of a French boudoir, and there’s only one treatment room for one couple. It’s cozy and picturesque, so booking a full body massage each is absolutely paramount. Cleanse yourself of stress and succumb to this very special treatment. The masseuses are exceptional at their craft, ensuring you have only the very best treatments. You’ll never want it to end!
Morrells knows the importance of precision, and it shows in the dining room. Spectacular towering crystal chandeliers hang above, roses are freshly picked from the garden and the table is set for two. Indulging over a glass of red, the cuisine is a combination of delicate flavors and tantalizing textures.
We were tickled pink with the Saumon Durci Liquide – delicate parcels of liquid cured Norwegian salmon, served with pickled fennel ricotta cheese and macerated red onion. For mains we were serenaded by the succulent grilled Kingklip Bisque, which was served over a giant ball of couscous cake. The cuisine is handsomely presented and filled with flavor and flair. We loved every minute of it!
