The Hotel

The Simola Golf Course and Country Club Estate boasts the brand new Simola Hotel and Spa, where lavish pampering and ultimate hospitality and relaxation are the order of the day.

Atop the Knysna hills, Simola overlooks the spectacular ocean and mountains that lay beneath it; topped only by the gorgeous Knysna Heads, where the lagoon becomes the warm Indian Ocean.    

Hospitality and comfort are our main concern at Simola Golf Course and Country Club Estate.


All 40 suites are set apart from the main complex, ensuring a peaceful, private setting. Each suite has 2 bedrooms, an open-plan living room, fully-equipped kitchen, dining area, lounge and patio. Amenities are designed to create a homely environment, and include an interactive TV with LCD screen, DVD player (with surround sound), wireless Internet access, data ports, Internet ports, underfloor heating, air-conditioning, hob with oven, microwave, under-counter fridge, freezer and mini-bar, and a gas braai on the patio.

Suites may be split, if guests require into a single bedroom suite with dining and living area, or a single room en-suite option.


The Orchid Room Restaurant is known for a superior menu offering. Alternatively, a full Sushi Bar is an ideal way venue to spoil corporate colleagues or to enjoy an intimate meal with someone special. Sir Roy's Cigar Bar, a hair salon, a jewellery shop, 24-hour in-room dining service, a gift boutique and a conference room accommodating up to 120 people are added extras that set Simola Golf Course and Country Club Estate apart in the hospitality industry.

Golfing enthusiasts are spoilt at the 18-hole Simola Golf Course. The sophisticated clubhouse, Proshop, locker room and golf cart parking area combine to form a very unique experience to Simola guests. These facilities are all within the Hotel and Spa business.

The 18-Hole championship course at Simola

Teeing off can become a distracting affair when considering the spectacular views around the course. As the first of Jack Nicklaus' Signature courses, Simola remains one of South Africa's leading golf courses. This course displays Jack Nicklaus' commitment to ensuring that the layout and feel of the course maintains a close relationship to the natural lie of the land on which it is built. A fun, yet challenging, course is set in stunning surrounds, with five par 5's and five par 3's. This unusual formation presents new opportunities to first-time guests, while the lack of wind (due to the fact that the course lies below high ridges) assists the golfer in improving his game sans outside disturbances. All holes provide players with amazing views of the Knysna Lagoon, the Heads, or the Knysna River.

Clubhouse Facilities

The Clubhouse is part of the new Simola Hotel, and guests and members of the golf course are welcome to enjoy the restaurant, indoor pool, and Wellness Centre.

A luxurious lounge area, as well as comfortable changing rooms ensure comfortable surrounds while at Simola Golf Course and Country Club Estate.

The Proshop offers modern golfing equipment and gear.

Spa and Gym

The all-new Simola Spa and Gym offers fitness fanatics fantastic views of Knysna during their invigorating workout. Use of glass panels, light and space continue the relaxed atmosphere of the environment in which it nestles. The sauna and indoor heated swimming pool are also surrounded by glass, as is the workout area, allowing an unmatched panorama.
