Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa

Knysna, Garden Route

The hotel

You can do the Garden Route in style with a stay at Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa, with its award-winning spa, indoor ‘Hot Zone’ pool and Zachery’s Bistro where you can indulge in decadent breakfasts and casual fare from a seasonal menu. Even the setting has a decadent twist, with this spacious resort laying along a fabulous championship golf course – although it’s not just the green fairways that make this spot utterly scenic, with the forests and mountains of Knysna’s Eastern Heads as your backdrop. And that privileged setting means you’re also close to the cute lagoon-side town of Knysna – linking you with the rest of the Garden Route.

First time in Knysna and our stay at Pezula was exceptional. We stayed in a Deluxe Room, the room was huge and had a lovely fireplace that we put to good use. Hotels facilities are excellent and we made use of the spa and indoor heated swimming pool. All staff at the hotel were excellent and attentive to our every need. The breakfast was great however the culinary highlight was our dinner at Zacharys Bistro. The menu is not extensive but I can understand why, they pay attention in making sure each dish is unique. Dinner was delicious and the Chef explained the inspiration behind the dishes we had. Only minor blip I can mention was failure of cleaning staff to remove the unfinished chocolates and strawberries from our room that stayed there for 2 days. Overall a really memorable experience, we will definitely return in future. Read less

The hotel is outstanding: huge rooms with all you need even a fireplace excellent service good breakfast but very poor dinner (lack of choice and below average food) unacceptable in a five star hotel The spa is excellent with sauna steam and a nice indoor swimming pool the golf is interesting and the staff is very attentive

We originally booked for one night and immediately added two nights after checking in! Really outstanding property with attention to detail in all aspects of design and service. It was a great little oasis on our South African trip.

This was our first stay at Pezula because normally we stay at another golf hotel and we are glad we gave Pezula a chance. Property is beautiful and feels like worlds away from the hustle and bustle.

This was our first stay at Pezula because normally we stay at another golf hotel and we are glad we gave Pezula a chance. Property is beautiful and feels like worlds away from the hustle and bustle. Hastings took our bags and told us about all the amenities. He is so informative and such a gem. Rooms are big, luxurious and very comfortable beds. Ample water, coffee and tea. Loved the warm and fuzzy bathrobes. Breakfast is decent and I think they need to have more staff there because you have to wait quite a while for your eggs to order. It didn't bother us because we love sitting around for breakfast but for some it might me a problem. It was really a great experience and would recommend to friends and family. Thanks Pezula Read less

A warm friendly greeting upon arrival set the scene for our short break. A lovely atmosphere in the hotel and the service was great. Could not fault it. Also the golf course is stunning and in immaculate condition.
