Majestically located atop the hills overlooking South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route and deservedly popular waterside town, Knysna, Simola Golf and Country Estate boasts arguably the most stunning panoramic view of this uniquely exquisite part of the world. Guests are treated to uninterrupted views of Knysna’s lagoon all the way out to the ocean beyond. Knysna is famed for its natural beauty; meandering waterways intertwine with indigenous forests rich with birdlife and blooming fynbos against a backdrop of rolling hills and Simola is a 5-star echo of this picture-postcard location where guests enjoy world-class service.
The accommodation here is unequivocally sumptuous, providing the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or leisurely retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Simola Luxury Lodge is set within the grounds of the estate and guests are welcome to take advantage of all the facilities available at the nearby Simola Hotel and Spa.
The lodge boasts eight stunning en suite rooms, each elegantly furnished offering all the creature comforts of home with some fabulous extras. Guests can unwind in the lodge’s infinity pool or enjoy a sundowner on one of the many decks and patios.
The hotel’s famous Orchid Room Restaurant offers the most exquisite menu as well as a beautiful view of the immaculate golf course and Knysna Heads. The menu comprises the very best in fresh, locally sourced ingredients with an international flair. Whisky fans can while away an evening or two in the wonderful Sir Roy’s Bar serving the finest whiskies and cognacs.
For those who wish to really unwind and be thoroughly pampered by signature health and wellness treatments, Simola’s Spa boasts four treatment rooms and a team of highly trained therapists. Gym goers can stay on the pulse at the hotel’s well-equipped gym, which must have the best view of any gym along the Garden Route.
However, it is probably the spectacular golf course that sets SImola apart from other resorts in the area. Protected from the coastal breezes, every hole has breathtaking views over the surrounding scenery and is widely popular with serious golf enthusiasts.
