Hotel Overview

sense of place

The proximity of the ocean and the mountains not only makes for some beautiful vistas, it is also part of the unique terroir which makes the estate’s wine so delicious.

rooms at Delaire Graff

Delaire Graff’s lodges were designed by the acclaimed David Collins Studio, and have a stylish, contemporary aesthetic while making the most of the beauty of their surroundings with huge windows and wide private verandas. The cinematic scope of the landscape outside is mirrored in the huge ceilings, while outside each lodge is your own private plunge pool where you can relax and take in the view. The vast Owner’s Lodge accommodates four adults, while the Luxury Lodge is decorated with artworks from the estate’s private collection.
