Venues

We pride ourselves on being one of the most versatile and spacious wedding venues in the Western Cape. Our indoor and outdoor facilities are complemented by our highly professional team who will be on hand to help you organise every aspect of your event.

The Chapel

Although still in construction, we can offer you you a one of a kind chapel for your wedding.

In the ‘open-air-church’ you can experience the sound of birds chirping, the flow of water from the river below and dappled sunlight casting it’s blessing on to you and your loved ones on your special day.

Up to 200 guests are seated in between the towering black wattle and blue gum trees, where you will get to kiss-the-bride. Guests make their way through a tranquil nature walk towards the epitome of a fairytale setting.

The grandeur of black wattle and blue gum trees sets the scene, surrounded by twelve pillars, allowing the outside elements to be a part of the setting. As the sun dips below the horizon, the atmosphere comes to life like an enchanted affair.

The Foyer

After the ceremony guests are welcomed with pre-drinks & canapés in the foyer before making their way to the celebration inside the Polo Venue.

The Polo Venue

The Polo Venue (1280 sqm) comprises of the foyer, the main hall, an exclusive lounge and a 12-metre long bar. It seats up to 250 guests easily with a large dancefloor, or 300 guests without a dancefloor. This venue is equipped with a 12m long bar, two fireplaces, and an exclusive non-smoking cigar lounge to keep the groom happy.

The Cigar Lounge

Pure luxury: the smell of leather and a cosy fireplace make for the perfect non-smoking cigar lounge. This space works well for intimate functions or social gatherings. The lounge flows into the bar area and is met with a double door to the courtyard.

The Bar

This 12-metre long bar is any groom’s dream. Our designated team will stock the bar to your liking and to meet the needs of the event as well as your guests. This space can also be booked exclusively for a more intimate occasion, or a birthday celebration as it connects with our outside lawn area and courtyard.

The Lawns

We offer wide open outside spaces of 11700 sqm of emerald-green freshly mowed lawns, allows you to enjoy the wide open outside spaces which characterise Soetendal Estate.

The Courtyard

The Courtyard is set next to the majestic Soetendal dam, surrounded by the picturesque countryside. This 150 sqm space, which includes a traditional braai area, is perfectly suited for pre-drinks, cocktail functions, and even smaller intimate wedding ceremonies.

Alternatively, you can dance the night away under the stars as this flexible area offers romantic lighting and freestanding fireplaces to set the atmosphere.

The Conference Room

The 85 sqm conference room adjoins the main hall, and can be booked exclusively for a smaller event, or used in conjunction with the main hall for larger events, for example as the buffet serving area for a wedding.
