Garden Route Pearl with elevated sea views

The Western Cape province is home to South Africa’s Garden Route attractions and the tranquil village of Wilderness, famed for its indigenous fynbos, dense forests and picturesque ocean views, from which Views Boutique Hotel and Spa derives its name, writes Des Langkilde.

A place that must be visited by any tourist on the Garden Route, Wilderness is an area of timeless beauty. There are many things to do and see in this small village. The famous “Map of Africa Viewpoint” offers fantastic views of the Kawaimans River Valley and an ocean vista rivaled by few. The Woodville Tree is another attraction in the area, thought to be about 800 years old.

Back in the 1800’s, Wilderness was already renowned for its hospitality and the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Back in those days, a small stone farmhouse was the only form of lodging and it was through this that the legend of Wilderness hospitality and goodwill was established.

As the only luxury hotel offering accommodation high over the spectacular Indian Ocean coastline, the exquisite Views Boutique Hotel & Spa is set in an idyllic paradise from which to unlock the secrets of South Africa’s famed Garden Route.

A mere twenty minutes drive from George airport, 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.

Sport and adventure activities are ubundant: famous golf courses, challenging scuba sites, fishing, canoeing, kloofing, forest walks, beach horse-riding, mountain bike trails, hikes; the variety is endless.

At Views it would appear that nothing has been left to chance – every need is anticipated and catered for, from personalized service to unabashed luxury and indulgence, this Boutique Hotel offers everything possible to make a stay the highlight it deserves to be.
