Witness the beauty of the Cape Winelands that surrounds you from our pool deck, and experience true splendour as you relax beside our pristine swimming pool. Our pool deck, sun loungers and poolside bar make for the perfect addition to your sundeck experience; not only does this space offer panoramic views of the Winelands and its sunsets, but it’s also the perfect spot to catch a tan, read a book and enjoy a snack from our eatery.


There is nothing more picturesque or decadent than a picnic at The Salene. Long, lazy days in the Cape Winelands are always best spent with an outdoor picnic, and we take care to select the freshest local produce and other tasty goodies for your basket. Set beside our dam and under the trees, you and your loved ones can enjoy an afternoon of snacks, wine and good conversation whilst taking in our breathtaking views. Please note that our picnic baskets serve two people and include a bottle of wine for R550 per basket.
