George, Garden Route
Fancourt Hotel is definitely one of South Africa’s premier hotels. Set against a dramatic mountain backdrop, rooms are split between the 150 year old Manor House, which has been completely remodelled to create a boutique hotel and the main hotel, which effortlessly combines modern luxury with traditional elegance. A golf estate – Outeniqua and Montagu 18-hole Golf Courses are two of the finest you’ll encounter – a must for any enthusiast. Meanwhile, those intent on a spot of pampering are also in for a treat. Rituals inspired by the four elements: air, water, fire and earth form the basis of all therapies, ensuring you leave your tranquil surrounds feeling balanced and on top of the world! Dining can be as formal or as casual as you please. There are several restaurants to choose from, including La Cantina, which is ideal for all the family. For that special occasion or just because you want to spoil yourselves, Henry White’s dedicates itself to excellence in the culinary arts – open six days a week, make sure you experience it at least once. When it comes to sightseeing, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area, including Garden Route excursions, a trip to the stunning Knysna Waterfront and trips into the wilderness to spot the 'Big Five'.
