This five star hotel was a great bargain. The executive suites were tastefully furnished with plenty of comfort factors such as underfloor heating. The room had an amazing view of the lush golf course and the Knysna Lagoon. Staff were extremely helpful.

It was with a heavy heart that we had to leave. We did not want to go and leave that amazing place. From the moment we entered Simola it was smiles all around. The staff is so friendly and always eager to help where needed. The room and view was to die for - Wow! Everything, yes everyhing was superb! Can not fault the food (breakfast and dinner), staff and room service. The Spa & facilities were wonderful - treatments amazing and worth every cent. Strict Covid protocol were applied everywhere, which made us feel safe. "Thank You" to everyone at Simola that made our stay unforgetable. We will definitely be back!

We spent 10 gorgeous days at simola hotel. The staff were great from the porter to cleaning staff and especially the reception staff and Roxanne the manager. Service was excellent and they strive to make your stay pleasurable. Best part as a muslim traveler with kids was that they had halaal friendly food options. Eventhough it was lockdown the breakfast brought to rooms was varied and yum. I would definitely return as soon as I can just because of the staff and halaal friendly food options. The only negative was that the outside cold pool is only open to kids as the indoor warm pool is for adults. Other than that i loved that as a muslim traveller with a family we had access to halaal friendly food options because in knysna its virtually non existent. The views are incredible and the actual suite apartments are spacious and exactly as the photos on their website. This IS A hidden gem in knysna. Thanks to Simola for a wonderful stay.

The Par2Bar Boys do an annual trip to a different course out of the norm from what we play in JHB. Most recently visited Simola and WOW ! I can not fault them on anything if i were to be super critical. Staff—5 Food-5 Accommodation-5 Views-5 Course-5 I have travelled to a few countries and visiting Simola has reminded me that we have a great country and amazing people that preserve the beautiful landscape. World class in every sense ! Would be taking my family there soon.
