Proudly claiming the title of Trip Advisor winner of the Top 25 Luxury Small Hotels in Africa 2013, Kanonkop Guest House in Knysna, along the beautiful Garden Route, offers five-star luxury accommodation. This boutique hotel is situated in a prime location only minutes from town yet it is tucked peacefully away in the centuries-old forest – the biggest in South Africa – and provides sweeping views over the tranquil lagoon and famous Knysna Heads cliffs – the gateway to the Indian Ocean. The family-run Kanonkop House is made up of five exclusive suites available to hire for one big family or group, or as separate accommodation.
Kanonkop House provides all the must-have amenities for a comfortable, relaxing coastal vacation. The professional and friendly staff will ensure guests are taken care of at all times. Each of the five suites is tastefully decorated with a dash of African inspiration, three overlooking the lagoon and two with a view of the gorgeous gardens. All suites include TV, free WiFI, organic bath products, fluffy bath robes, underfloor heating, scented candles, soft linen bedding and more. The swimming pool and sun deck allow for hours of whiling away in the sunshine, plus the outdoor lounge and bar are perfect for those balmy evening sunsets. Each morning guests will be served a delicious breakfast and will have access to the bar throughout the day, all of which is included in the rate.
The small town of Knysna offers many adventures, from lazing on the beach to boat trips out to sea; hiking and walking in the indigenous forest to shopping and eating at one of the many fantastic restaurants in the area. The usually laid-back sleepy town comes alive in the mid-year school holidays where it plays host to the annual Oyster Festival and Knysna Marathon. Keen golf players are also treated to special membership rates at two championship golf courses in the area – Pezula and Simola.
So whether you’re planning to join in with the throngs during festival time or simply need a quiet time away, Kanonkop is the ideal retreat.
