17 May 2024

Preferred Hotels & Resorts - the world’s largest independent hotel brand - has announced its 2024 Preferred Awards of Excellence with Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa among the 12 winning hotels. Presented by the brand’s CEO Lindsey Ueberroth and President Michelle Woodley at the annual Preferred Global Conference in Lisbon on May 9, 2024, Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa was awarded 'Hotel Of The Year - India, Middle East & Africa'.

"It's truly an honour to receive this prestigious acknowledgement, especially among such esteemed company. Since Dr. Christian Ellleke acquired the property, Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa has undergone a remarkable reinvention, transforming from a historic grand dame into a modern marvel, with passion poured into every curated corner but whilst staying true to the rich heritage and unrivalled setting within the Heart of the Helderberg. As part of our ongoing commitment to hospitality excellence, constant work and adaptation are essential to deliver our dedicated service and unforgettable stays. The recent unveiling of our new event space, Camphor, is testament to this and marks an exciting milestone for us as a hotel, as well as for the Cape Winelands. Furthermore, we're thrilled to share that our spa is next in line and currently undergoing a metamorphosis, set to emerge as a leading wellness retreat, ushering in a new era of luxury for all things holistic health and beauty. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated team on the ground, as well as Preferred Hotels & Resorts for this prestigious award, which has further fuelled our passion. Being in Lisbon to receive this in person last week and network with industry greats was an added privilege!" - Debbie-Lee Cockrell, General Manager, Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa.

The Preferred Awards of Excellence recognise member hotels that epitomize excellence within the brand’s global portfolio of over 600 hotels, resorts and residences, and inspire the global travel community to pursue #ThePreferredLife. To qualify for nomination, hotels were required to rank among the top in their region as part of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Integrated Quality Assurance program, which includes third party on-site inspections and real-time guest feedback from the world’s top consumer review sites.

Situated amidst the picturesque landscapes of the Helderberg mountains, Erinvale Estate Hotel & Spa provides luxurious accommodation, exceptional dining and unparalleled hospitality. With a storied past and unwavering dedication to excellence, this award aligns with other recent achievements, including the attainment of a 5-star grading from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa for both the hotel and its newly established Camphor venue facilities and Oak & Birch Boardrooms.

A haven for discerning travelers, Erinvale stands as a true destination in every sense of the word, offering countless opportunities for luxurious relaxation and rejuvenation within its grounds and amidst its historic wine farm neighbours.
