Conrad Hotels are a luxurious brand of Hilton Hotels. There has been rapid expansion with 7 hotels and resorts developed in 2012. 11 more are planned over the next 4 years. Only one is in South Africa – yes, in Knysna, the prettiest town in South Africa.
Conrad Pezula Resort & Spa is the first Conrad-branded luxury property in sub-Sahara Africa. It boasts 86 stylish rooms, 3 castles and 2500 acres offering majestic views of the Indian Ocean and the well known Knysna Estuary. For sport enthusiasts, there’s the Field of Dreams which hosts tennis, gold and archery. You can play a round on an award winning 18-hole golf course, go hiking or horse riding. Indoors, there are two restaurants, a library, game room and specialist Champagne & Whisky Bar.
Knysna has much to offer from elephant rides and nature trails to paragliding and boating. There are two islands in the Knysna Estuary, 2 waterfronts, over 40 restaurants and many beaches (2 with Blue Flag status). All this in a town with only 65 000 inhabitants. It’s the holiday jewel of South Africa.
