Lake Pleasant Hotel near Knysna on the famous Garden Route

The Lake Pleasant Hotel is built on the edge of one of the few natural freshwater lakes in the southern hemisphere and is a serene retreat set in the picturesque Goukamma Nature and Marine Reserve.

Only a short drive from the Hotel are six famous golf courses; the Cango Caves, ostrich and cheetah farms at Oudsthoorn; as well as the many attractions of George and Plettenberg Bay.

Ideally suited for mid-week, weekend or any day breakaways for a bit of serious pampering or intense relaxation essential for the overworked and stressed.
The Hotel, awarded a full five star grading by the Tourism Grading Council, maintains the historical charm of the original 1840 Manor House. Nestling between verdant hills, lakes, indigenous forests and unspoilt beaches, this is an area of incomparable beauty.

Appetizing contemporary modern cuisine is prepared from the freshest produce, flavoured and garnished using fresh herbs. A la carte menus marvelously display the chef`s intrinsic culinary talent and exclusive award winning wines tempt even the most jaded palate.

Leisure activities in this spectacularly scenic area include bird watching, fishing, horse riding, mountain biking, hiking trails and whale and dolphin watching.
