About Simola Hotel

Located high up in the hills above the Garden Route town of Knysna, Simola Golf and Country Estate is a world apart. Fairways merge seamlessly with lush indigenous vegetation and forests creating an evocative vista of undulating green hills and dales descending gently down to the Knysna River.

From its vantage point, the 325-hectare Estate looks out over a spectacular panorama encompassing the full expanse of the Knysna Lagoon, all the way to the Heads and beyond to the sea. It is here in this sheltered haven that you may enjoy golf, 5 Star accommodation, sumptuous meals and even a pampering at our spa.

Set above the beautiful town of Knysna, the hotel boasts awe inspiring views across the Knysna estuary, over emerald hills and the Knysna River, all the way to the famous Heads in the distance. Away from the bustle, Simola Hotel offers a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere; while still close enough to a myriad of entertainment, dining and leisure activities to suit leisure travellers, golfers and adventure seekers alike.

Simola Hotel and Spa offers guests welcoming and friendly yet efficient service. The 5 Star facilities include the Orchid Room Restaurant and Sushi Bar serving buffet breakfasts and delectable a la carte dining, Sir Roy’s Bar, the Club Café for light meals and spa with a fully equipped gymnasium.

Set a short distance from the main complex are the forty two-bedroom suites. Beautifully decorated, the focus is on elegance and comfort with all the conveniences of a modern home; an open-plan living area with fully equipped kitchen, dining area, lounge and patio, interactive TV with LCD screen, DVD player with surround sound, wireless connectivity, data and internet ports, underfloor heating, air-conditioning, flat-top hob with oven, microwave, under-counter fridge, freezer and mini-bar, and a gas braai on the patio.

The Orchid Room Restaurant at Simola Hotel offers a dining experience sure to please even the most discerning patron. With views stretching across the most beautiful vista of the lagoon and Heads as well as the golf course and outside pool, one can be forgiven for spending more time than usual dining.

Spa: Simola’s Spa offers a wide choice of face and body treatments, expertly and sensitively administered by trained therapists in one of four private treatment rooms.

Conference Venues: Knysna, and more to the point, Simola, is a fantastic place to do business. Our dedicated team of professionals will tailor-make a corporate breakaway package second to none.
