“what a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

chance find travelling west on garden route, having last visited Wilderness 35 years ago. Sleek modern boutique hotel with attentive and helpful staff (TED) and excellent rooms with uninterrupted sea views. If you want to splurge out, this might be the place for you.

Very beautiful and design hotel right on the beach. Very nice rooms with all comfort, special mention to the very large bed and the spacious bathroom with both bath and shower. Amazing view from the balcony overlooking the ocean. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice.

The staff were all very professional and attentive. The food and wine was of a good quality (with the exception of the juice and coffee!!). All very good/excellent but slightly over-priced. We would recommend this to our friends and family

This beach took us by surprise...in fact the breathtaking views of this small Wilderness town is simply worth the long drive all the way from the Western Cape to the Eastern Cape. The scenic garden route is a great way to appreciate the beauty that is South Africa the place I proudly call HOME ❤️

Stayed December 2016, travelled with family
