Views Boutique Hotel & Spa Description
The warm Indian Ocean waters play at the feet of the exquisite VIEWS Boutique Hotel & Spa. An idyllic paradise from which to unlock the secrets of South Africa’s famed Garden Route, a mere 20 minutes from George airport and the only luxury hotel high over the spectacular coastline. Wilderness lies in the heart of the Garden Route with towns like Knysna, Plettenburg Bay and Storms River to the east, little Karoo Oudtshoorn to the north, and Mossel Bay to the west, all easily accessed from the centrally positioned VIEWS. Fondly known as the “Garden of Eden”, nature was indeed generous, her bounty includes: Indigenous floral Fynbos, bird-rich lakes, black tannin coloured rivers, narrow gravel road mountain passes, whales, dolphins, and kilometers of beaches that look as though no human has ever trod there before. Sport is never far, famous golf courses, challenging scuba sites, fishing, canoeing, kloofing, forest walks, beach horse-riding, mountain bike trails, hikes; the variety is endless. Wonderful gastronomy enhances any visit and VIEWS houses Foam, an intimate euro-fusion fine food restaurant, plus the more family oriented Sails restaurants on site. VIEWS has eighteen 5 star Suites; all spacious, light filled and splendid. This alone makes a stay special; when adding the Views Spa and Gym, private Pool Deck, Seaview Lounge, Library Lounge and a Cocktail Deck overhanging the beach, it becomes exceptional. At VIEWS nothing has been left to chance, every need anticipated and catered for, personalized service, unabashed luxury and indulgence, this Boutique Hotel offers everything possible to make a stay the highlight it deserves to be.
Wilderness really is the Pearl of the Garden Route. This little village lies very centrally in the temperate Southern Cape, just 15km east of George. A veritable treasure of unspoiled nature it nestles between the tannin coloured Kaaimans river and the Goukamma Nature reserve. Its greatest asset is endless pristine stretches of beach, tranquil, secluded and fanned by soft sea breezes. During the winter months a special treat are the Southern Right Whales that can be spotted using the 18km of protected coastline to come in close to shore and calve. The Serpentine river meanders through Island lake, Rondevlei and Langvlei making the perfect home for many species of wetland birds. This forms part of the 2500 ha of Wilderness National park, the eco-system here is rare and sensitive and rightly protected. Many beautiful walks and well marked hikes make this a paradise for nature lovers. Water sports can be enjoyed at Island lake so there is something for everyone. Whether seeking a gentle nature filled break or a vigorous outdoor holiday Wilderness really does have something for everyone. Lots to do, lots to see, the perfect place to make special memories.
