The Mantis Group, in partnership with Val de Vie Estate, is pleased to announce the development of Phase Two of the Pearl Valley Hotel, to be launched on 2 November 2018. The success of Phase One has necessitated the additional 40 single suites which will benefit investors and increase occupancies, since the business of large groups and corporate conferences had to be turned away due to an insufficient number of rooms.



A capital investment from R2.2 million affords full sectional-title ownership of a 69m² one-bedroom suite in the second phase of the Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis. 30 days per year stay in the hotel are included in the investment, and there is the additional benefit of rental income for the remainder of the year. Added benefits include discounted membership at the Pearl Valley Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course as well as membership to the Mantis loyalty programme. Further opportunities have been generated through this business model, in St. Francis Bay on the Jack Nicklaus The Links course and another Mantis property at Simbithi in KwaZulu Natal. Owners of Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis suites will be entitled to exchange occupancy nights between all three venues.


Mantis and AccorHotels entered into a joint venture in 2018 in a partnership that will benefit Pearl Valley Hotel owners through its loyalty program, called “Le Club”, with preferred access to over 4500 hotels worldwide.


Val de Vie Estate is perfectly located in the heart of the Cape Winelands, a tranquil environment conveniently close to the business hubs of Stellenbosch and Cape Town, which are respectively 15 minutes and 35 minutes away.  An easy 35-minute drive via the new Berg River Bridge Gatehouse from the Cape Town International Airport sets Val de Vie Estate apart as a base for business meetings in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa.



The estate is an idyllic environment for holiday-goers to unwind and offers parents with children the ultimate relaxation, where the young ones can play, swim and run to their heart’s content. The Valley is synonymous with exceptional food, wine, hospitality and a temperate Mediterranean climate, which attracts not only high net worth South Africans but a cosmopolitan mix of international residents and visitors.


Named the Best Conditioned course in the Western Cape by Golf Digest Magazine for the last 10 years and awarded the Compleat Golfer’s Five Star Experience Award for six consecutive years, the Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course has been ranked amongst the top 10 courses in South Africa by Golf Digest Magazine every year from 2006 up to and including 2017 and as one the top 5 courses in 2018/2019.



Val de Vie Estate has taken pro-active steps to ensure that the Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis is entirely ‘water independent’ by implementing a private water filtration plant on the estate in December 2017 that purifies groundwater from a localised aquifer.
