The hotel is located in an idyllic paradise from which guests can unlock the secrets of South Africa's famed Garden Route. It is the only luxury hotel situated 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, Oudtshoorn to the north, and Mossel Bay to the west, all easily accessed from the centrally positioned hotel. Garden Route Mall is in the vicinity of the hotel. The nearest airports are George (around 20 km/20-minutes drive), Port Elizabeth (around 35 km) and Cape Town International (around 45 km away).
Modern, eclectic and fresh, all rooms have private en suite bathrooms with shower, bath and hairdryer. Natural light floods through frameless glass windows, bringing the outdoors in. Rooms offer spectacular Indian Ocean views to the south and the Outeniqua Mountains to the north. In-room amenities include a king-size bed, direct dial telephone, satellite/cable TV, Internet access and a safe. A minibar and tea and coffee making facilities are available, and air conditioning and a balcony or terrace feature as standard.
Despite the hotel's beachfront location, guests may prefer to relax on a sun lounger in the privacy of the roof-top pool deck and sun terrace. The hotel has a heated indoor and outdoor swimming pool with poolside snack bar (fees apply to the latter). The Media Room shows movies in surround-sound, while on the lower levels the private spa and gym is perfect for indulging in massages and spa treatments (fees apply) or maintaining fitness levels. Guests can also enjoy the sea air on invigorating walks along kilometres of unspoiled Wilderness beach, to both the East and West. Parasols are available for a fee on the sandy beach.
Lunch and dinner are available à la carte. There are two restaurants on the property - a fine dining venue where guests are served breakfast with a view of the waves tumbling below, and a more casual bistro-style restaurant with terraced decking spilling outside for uninterrupted sea views and sunsets. The sea view lounge takes full advantage of the seascape, while offering great style and comfort, and guests can enjoy a cup of tea and a good book in the Library Lounge - perfect for a lazy afternoon.
American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and VISA are accepted at this establishment.
Take the N2 Freeway, bypass George and descend down Kaaimans Pass. Continue straight through Wilderness. Shortly thereafter look out for a Caltex Filling Station - turn in at this intersection, continue around the traffic circle towards the sea.
