Paarl is an Afrikaans word that means ‘pearl’ and that a perfect way of describing this low-key but pretty historic town in the heart of South Africa’s Winelands. Less than hour after leaving Cape Town behind, you turn into ‘the pearl of wine country’ and check into the Light House Boutique Suites – a comfortable but elegantly casual boutique hotel that is ideal for a short stopover on a Winelands self-drive vacation.

You will be shown to one of five suites, all with individual décor that ranges from a bold Afro-chic style to a dreamy and romantic look that is ideal for honeymooners. But no matter which room you make your home for the next few nights, you will be pampered with everything from freshly baked scones groaning with cream to iced sparkling wine to enjoy next to the swimming pool. In the evenings, curl up in the well-stocked library with a glass of Paarl’s finest red vintage.

Enjoy views of the Paarl Mountains, which can be dusted with snow between May and August, and sit down to fresh fruit platters for breakfast before venturing out to explore the area. With elegant design and old-fashioned hospitality, the Light House Boutique Suites will make you feel right at home and can be booked on an exclusive-use basis for large groups travelling together.

Afro Chic Suite

There are five individually decorated en suite rooms at the Light House Boutique Suites, all with king-sized, extra-length or twin beds.

The Afro-chic Suite echoes Africa with hints of bold red and black against a white palette. It has expansive views of Paarl Rock Mountain.

The Hamptons Suite looks out over the landscaped garden and verdant Paarl Valley, and is done in tranquil shades of pale blue.

In contrast, the Manhattan Suite is modern and masculine, its black-and-white décor a good contrast to the green garden vistas.

All suites have spacious granite bathrooms with tubs and Molton Brown amenities. Rooms are fitted with beverage stations, writing desks, satellite television, iPod docking stations, mini-bars, air conditioning and Wi-Fi.


After exploring the Cape Winelands or perhaps playing a round of golf at one of the nearby courses, spend the afternoon unwinding at the Light House’s crystal-clear swimming pool. Enjoy tea time in the secluded gazebo and look out for the active birdlife in the garden.

The Light House has a full laundry service.


The Light House serves a delicious breakfast and afternoon high tea. Lunch and dinner can be served by prior arrangement although there are several excellent restaurants in the vicinity.
