Knysna Quays Showcases New Hotel

The Protea Hotel Knysna Quays, which forms part of the recently developed and increasingly high profile Knysna Waterfront, is due to open at the beginning of August.

To celebrate the launch of the hotel, Protea Hotels is offering guests a special opening rate during August and September of R259.00 a room.

The 122 roomed hotel is situated on Knysna Lagoon and overlooks the yacht basin. Protea Hotels Special Projects Director Bernard Cassar boasts that, “This hotel`s situation, facing the sea and the celebrated Knysna Heads, is undoubtedly one of the best sites in Southern Africa.” Ideally located for leisure and business travellers alike, The Protea Hotel Knysna Quays is 56 kms away from the George Airport and 280kms away from Port Elizabeth and forms part of the prestigious portfolio of Premier Protea Hotels.

Facilities include an outdoor entertainment area with a wooden deck, floodlit swimming pool which overlooks the lagoon, as well as a breakfast restaurant, and resident cocktail bar. There are also individual mooring and jetty facilities for hotel guests and 24-hour wining and dining at the adjacent Knysna Quays Waterfront restaurants and pubs.

All the rooms are decorated in a crisp maritime theme complete with deluxe en-suite bathroom and separate shower, satellite TV, individually controlled air-conditioning and an extra length king-size bed in the double rooms. The Protea Hotel Knysna Quays is also an ideal base from which to visit and play the numerous excellent golf courses on the Garden Route. Other sporting and leisure activities located nearby the hotel include daily boat rides on the scenic lagoon, fishing and squash.


For the more adventurous at heart there are rides on the Outeniqua choo-choo train which travels between Knysna and George, as well as walks and hikes in the Tsitsikamma National Park and on the famous Otter Trail.
