Morukuru Family De Hoop joins the Relais & Châteaux family

We are thrilled to announce that Morukuru Family De Hoop has been welcomed into the Relais & Châteaux family, which is an association of individually owned and operated luxury hotels and restaurants. This means that our beautiful coastal property is now one of only six establishments in South Africa.

Since 1954, Relais & Châteaux has invited guests to discover the world in a discerning way and has a presence on five continents supporting 65 properties. The Relais & Châteaux is recognised as a brand that upholds standards of subtle sophistication, allowing guests to delight in their travel experience.

This year’s annual Relais & Châteaux Congress was held in Venice from 13 - 15  November. Philippe Gombert, President, Relais & Châteaux, carried out the honours and presented Morukuru Family De Hoop with their official plaque. Grommet says, “More than a brand, Relais & Châteaux represents a profound philosophy: to make a better world through cuisine and hospitality.

Relais & Châteaux members are committed to hospitality inspired by personality and passion and are dedicated to forging warm, lasting relationships with their guests.

The French call this philosophy  “l’Art de vivre”, which means “ the art of living”.

We call this idea, simply, Morukuru Family De Hoop
