If there is one hotel on the Garden Route with stunning views it is Simola Hotel & Spa. Each suite is well appointed with massive balconies and views overt the valley below. Most of the rooms have views of the golf course.


I would strongly recommend a sundowner on the balcony at the golf club.........certainly a must when staying at this beautiful hotel.
