About Shamwari Townhouse

Port Elizabeth's exclusive Shamwari Townhouse is where elegance and superior service meet on a platform of comfort and hospitality. Shamwari Townhouse offers the discerning guest luxurious boutique accommodation on the pristine coastline of South Africa.

This gorgeous coastline is complimented by malaria-free nature reserves. One of these is Shamwari Game Reserve, which has earned its global acclaim as the ultimate oasis for the busy tourist to see the wildlife of Africa in the midst of contemporary, chic design. Shamwari Townhouse, in the aristocratic suburb of Summerstrand, has established its local and international clientele on a similar sense of luxury and esteem. Summerstrand is within a short walk of kilometres of the white sand and warm waters of the PE beachfront.

Shamwari Townhouse is committed to providing a true retreat for the leisure and corporate traveller, a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of urban living.

This building is set in impressive gardens that transport any busy traveller to a serene place for relaxation or contemplation.

All seven suites are exquisitely appointed with the key priority being on our guests' comfort. The Shamwari Townhouse is part of the Mantis Collection, which lends it a global endorsement, unsurpassed by many.
