Named after the deep pink and cream Double Delight Rose, the Double Delight Suite is a deluxe, air conditioned suite with en-suite bathroom that opens directly onto our quiet large, private garden where we have a large number of rose bushes, and abundant birdlife.
The ceilings of this suite are of Spanish reed and are tied in the traditional manner. The beams are local Pine.
The queen-size bed is made from Yellowwood and Kiaat to Adin’s design, as are the side tables which are made from Canary Pine and Cypress.
One of the lamps is Yellowwood and the other Hard Pear.
The mattress is the latest Sealy Posturepedic Plus which, we think, you will find a superb mattress.
The coffee table and side tables are made from Tambuti, a wood that grows north of Pretoria. This is an exceptionally hard and heavy wood giving off a slightly astringent aroma. African tradition believes that by keeping a piece of this wood in your room, all flu’s, mosquitoes, etc., etc., including tokoloshes (gremlins), will be kept away.
The chairs are genuine leather made by Coricraft of Cape Town.
The Yellowwood kist at the foot of the bed was made by Adin Greaves from old beams extracted from the first building erected at Rhodes University in Grahamstown. The cupboard and dressing table are made from Kiaat, the top of the dressing table being Black Ironwood and Yellowwood.
The windows are made from Blackwood in the traditional Victorian style.
The Double Delight is en-suite with a walk-in shower as well as bath.
