As its name suggests, the Rex Hotel offers a truly regal vacation experience. Situated in the heart of South Africa’s famed Garden Route, the Rex Hotel is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the delightful coastal town of Knysna and its beautiful surrounds. Nature lovers will enjoy the indigenous forests, home to a plethora of flora and fauna, as well as Knysna Lagoon, rich in bird and marine life. Shopaholics will rejoice about Knysna’s charming boutiques, offering a range of local crafts and curios. The hotel prides itself on offering impeccable service and comfort and is billed as one of Knysna’s most sophisticated accommodation choices.
Offering thirty beautifully appointed luxury apartments, guests can enjoy home from home comforts as well as some more indulgent touches. Each apartment has its own kitchenette, so that guests are free to really make themselves at home, although there is a delightful bistro style restaurant called Dish, which offers a mouthwatering menu for every taste. Breakfast, lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at Dish, although Knysna is host to a number of fabulous restaurants as well should you fancy a change.
Stylishly furnished with all the mod-cons one would expect from a 4-star destination, guests can unwind in the comfort of fully air-conditioned accommodation. Those looking to stay in shape during their stay can make use of the hotel’s state of the art gym, or venture further afield to try their hand at paddle-boarding or windsurfing in nearby Knysna Lagoon.
For those seeking a more relaxed pursuit, take a boat cruise around the lagoon, and enjoy a glass of wine as you explore the pristine waters of this exquisite waterway.
Golf enthusiasts can take advantage of one of the popular golf resorts in the area, which offer immaculate courses with breathtaking views.
Nature lovers should visit Featherbed Nature Reserve, the local elephant park and sanctuary, the Tenikwa Wild Cat Experience, Eagle Encounters, Monkeyland and Birds of Eden – all of which offer a great day trip for families with children of all ages.
