Pezula Hotel is set on the cliffs close to Knysna on the Garden Route. Pezula is in fact a Shona word for ‘up there with the gods’ and this apt name describes its dramatically scenic location. On one side, the Indian Ocean crashes against rugged cliffs, to another side emerald forests cover the surrounding hills, and bushbuck and zebra peer through the natural bush and to yet another side, the views stretch out across Knysna lagoon to the mountains beyond. Pezula Hotel effortlessly combines luxury with this utterly unique natural experience.
The hotel is modern, sleek and contemporary with a funky bar, excellent wine cellar and state of the art Spa. Dine at Zachary’s restaurant or at the Restaurant on the Beach at Noetzie. The impressive private wine cellar is also the venue for private dinners. Afterwards you can relax with a cognac in the delightfully clubby cigar bar. The 78 suites at Pezula Resort Hotel are spacious and sleek with a soft contemporary styling. All have a balcony or patio, air-conditioning, comfortable seating area with log fireplace, flat screen TV, DVD player, wireless internet access and desk, minibar, tea/coffee facilities, ottoman and day bed. Choose between studio and villa suites which differ mainly in size (58sqm versus 68sqm).
