Farm Style Breakfast

What better way to start the day than to fuel your body with a nutritious and wholesome breakfast.

Enjoy only the freshest produce as you get ready for the relaxing day ahead.

We have a selection of assorted bread and rolls, a selection of fresh fruits, meats, different cereals and spreads and an à la carte menu. 

Breakfast is R195 per person and can be ordered upon check in.

Relax at our EcoPool

Wind down at our all natural EcoPool. This pool fits in with the Rijk’s eco philosophy perfectly.

No chemicals, no additives. Just pure, fresh water. This pool is kept clean and clear by a complex eco system of plants that filter the water and offer a swimming experience that feels like a dip in a natural mountain pool.

Still not sure how it works? Come and see for yourself.

Juice Bar

Cold pressed juices retain all of the vitamins and minerals of the whole fruit. Packed with nutrients all in one drink.

Enjoy a wide selection of freshly pressed juices and health shots. We put a big emphasis on wellness and truly taking care of yourself and feeling your best. With the rest of the farm being a very tranquil environment, it is important to feel good from the inside out while you relax here. We have created very unique juice flavours for you to try.

Hotel Gardens

Our unique hotel gardens consist mostly of succulent plants. With Tulbagh reaching temperatures of 40 degrees and above in summer, we decided to choose the water wise option for our gardens.
