Picture this: You, sipping a glass of wine on a balcony at one the most sophisticated hotels in the mellow coastal town of Knysna, less than a minute from the Waterfront Quays.

BEACHES TO BREWERIES
Centrally located, aha The Rex Hotel mixes chic urban style with classic comforts, offering 4-star luxury accommodation right in the heart of one of the Western Cape’s most favourite getaways. And guests tend to rave about the location.

“It is a fantastic location as you can walk everywhere – no need to drive” says Jenny on TripAdvisor.

A little further afield, there’s certainly no shortage of attractions and activities in the surrounding Garden Route either. Boat tours, elephant parks, breweries, nature reserves and hikes deep into the last remaining true forests of South Africa as well as sandy beaches for some recess near the ocean.

FEEL AT HOME IN 4-STAR LUXURY
Not that you’ll want to leave too often – the rich and cosy fabrics and picture-postcard balcony views at aha The Rex could keep you in your room all weekend long more than comfortably. Urban chic and contemporary decor set the tone for a relaxing yet elegant ambience, while well-equipped kitchenettes, dining areas and open-plan lounges make your stay feel just like home.

All the small touches you’d forget to check for are all included too. Of course, Wi-Fi, a hair-dryer, air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee, a stocked mini bar and LCD TV with selected DStv channels come standard. And upgrading your standard room to any luxury room gets you a private balcony overlooking central Knysna or the newly installed swimming pool.

Oh, did we mention that the hotel was recently revamped? There’s loads to explore. Which brings us to the food.

EAT WELL, LIVE WELL
Downstairs is the newly renovated Rose Café, serving up a fusion of dishes inspired by the Greater Mediterranean, North Africa and the Middle East. They cater to every preference too, with vegetarian and vegan options to enjoy on the outdoor terrace accompanied by sunshine and the fresh Knysna air.

DISCOVERIES NEARBY
Apart from the easily-accessible shops, restaurants and boat cruise experiences at the Waterfront Quays down the road, there’s also the chance to interact with Africa’s largest land animal in their natural habitat at the Knysna Elephant Park, a quick 20-minute drive away.

Also make a stop at the Birds of Eden bird sanctuary – where you can explore the sanctuary’s mysterious ruins, including a walk behind a waterfall.
