Awards for tourism’s best

Tourism destinations from the district shone at the recent Cape Winelands Mayoral Tourism Awards held on 26 September.

“This event is a true celebration of the people in tourism in the Cape Winelands,” said Executive Mayor Dr Helena von Schlicht.

The international theme for tourism in 2019-’20 is “Jobs through tourism”.

In an effort to recognise the valuable input of the tourism sector, the district municipality confers the Mayoral Tourism Award on local establishments that treat guests in such a manner that they keep on coming back.

The categories include service excellence, wine (or distillery) tourism destination, entrepreneurship and sustainable development as well as a mayoral discretionary award which is bestowed upon a tourism individual, entity, project, festival or event that made a significant impact on the tourism industry.

The winners in the category sustainable development was the Fynbos Guest Farm outside Tulbagh. The runner-up in this category is the completely off the grid African Game Lodge, situated about 32 km outside Montagu.

The winners in service excellence, category accommodation, were: luxury hotels – The Light House Boutique Hotel in Paarl; self-catering – Big Sky Cottages in Wolseley; family accommodation – Avalon Springs in Montagu; and the Montagu / Ashton Local Tourism Association walked away with the first prize for their incredible service to tourism in the area.

Montagu and Franschhoek establishments submitted entries in the entrepreneurship category. Flying Feet in Montagu received the runner-up accolade.

The two top wine destinations were Val du Charron in Wellington for their wonderful ambience and wide choice of activities, followed by BluVine in Montagu.

The CWDM urges local and visitors alike to go on line and visit the web pages of the winners, take a drive or plan a weekend getaway, as this district offers something for everyone.
