Abloom does not have a restaurant but does offer exquisite meals for the connoisseurs! Dining at Abloom is a spectacular experience. Lowie serves his gourmet meals in his own workshop where during the day, his latest woodwork ideas are brought to life. Every evening however, the workshop is transformed to a candle lit and romantic environment. It is there where you will meet the other guests at Abloom’s large dining table. All meals are prepared with the freshest local produce which inspire Lowie to design and prepare a unique set menu that may differ daily, all subject to the available ingredients and Lowie’s creative mood! Dinner is served at 18.30 and the workshop closes its creative doors at 21.00.
Abloom looks after the planet, all products used in the suites and the spa are produced in South Africa and are eco-friendly. The spa doesn’t use disposables and our water is of a good quality so we invite you to drink directly from the tap instead of the bottle. In our kitchen we pride ourselves to use as much organic ingredients as possible. When building our suites we used local and recycled materials, eco-friendly cement, rocks from the farm en local builders.
