Fragrant and colourful, Hunter’s’ luxuriant gardens create an idyllic setting for this opulent retreat in the heart of the Garden Route. Hunter’s Country House combines gracious elegance with sheer comfort and impeccable service with warm hospitality. Far from the madding crowd, yet conveniently close to a wide variety of leisure activities, Hunter’s is a member of Relais & Chateaux and Chaine des Rotisseurs.

LOCATION
Hunter’s is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all that the Garden Route has to offer. Plettenberg Bay, South Africa’s premier seaside destination and the “Nature~Sport Capital of Africa” with its glorious golden beaches, is a mere 10km eastward, while the vibrant town of Knysna, nestled next to the vast Knysna lagoon, is 20km toward the west. And every which way the lush indigenous forests framed by the majestic Tsitsikamma mountains.

FACILITIES
For absolute peace and tranquility, venture no further than the Estate itself. An old-world ambience permeates the thatched manor house with its antique-furnished lounges, candle-lit dining rooms and sun-drenched conservatory. Secluded within the gardens are 18 luxurious suites, individually designed and decorated, each uniquely distinctive. All have private patios and gardens, certain suites have their own plunge pools while all guests can enjoy the hotel’s large sparkling outdoor pool. Set in the magnificent gardens with a spectacular view of the Outeniqua Mountains, the recently built open-air Summer House provides an attractive alternative to the more formal dining rooms, offering innovative, informal meals with the focus on fresh wholesome cuisine. Sage Restaurant situated in the Manor House offers a fresh approach to a new cuisine experience with locally sourced ingredients to tantalise the taste buds. Aromatherapy, massage and reflexology are available on request in the privacy of guests’ suites. Hunter’s’ additional features include a Boardroom (fully equipped with audio-visuals) where fax, internet and e-mail facilities are provided, a Curio shop, and a private ‘Chapel in the Forest’ for weddings. There are also five golf courses within easy access of the Estate. Hunter’s’ superb gourmet cuisine, reflecting the rich diversity of South African cultures, is complemented by the finest Estate and prized Auction wines from the extensive cellar.
