Setting the scene

Sitting on the edge of South Africa's biggest forest, adjacent to Knysna lagoon with enormous cliff tops paving an entrance to the Indian Ocean, this small and intimate hotel really stands out as a truly unique place to stay. 


With just five individually designed and furnished rooms and two exclusive and luxury villas, the resort really is perfect for those who enjoy their privacy. The villas are ideal for families and groups and have abounding space with private terraces and swimming pools in which to choose your viewing point from. The five rooms are ideal for a romantic break and are far from cluttered, with tasteful art and contemporary design presented throughout.


The area of Knysna parades a plethora of eateries from around the world, as expected there is South African cuisine, both modern and traditional, as well as the variety of high class international options for you to choose from.


The area of Knysna is a playground of water sports and land activity to intrigue any thrill seeker or landscape lover, so hike, cycle, water ski and more. Pezula and the Jack Nicklaus designed Simola Golf courses are spectacular and undulating, there is little wonder these golfing venues are on the bucket list of many an amateur across the globe. In addition to this the resort has an in house Masseuse who will be available for guests wanting a treatment throughout their stay.  


The villas are designed for groups and families alike, Kanonkop can cater for any sized family of differing ages. The area, as mentioned is filled with activity to keep the children entertained, so supervise or let them be supervised under expert local tuition. 


It is around an hours drive to George Airport.
