Garden Route, South Africa
With a backdrop of verdant rolling hills and sprawling golf courses surrounding it, Fancourt is a breath-taking hotel found along the iconic Garden Route in South Africa. Catering for every kind of holiday-maker, from families and couples, to keen golfers and single travellers, Fancourt is classic and elegant.
There are 115 rooms and suites altogether, all featuring a balcony with scenic views. The Classic Rooms feature the standard amenities and elegant décor, whilst the Luxury Rooms are slightly larger with views of the Outenique mountain range. The One Bedroom Suites feature a separate lounge and a balcony or patio with sweeping views of the estate, whilst the Two Bedroom Suites also come with a fireplace, a dining area, and en-suite bedrooms.
Golfing enthusiasts will love Fancourt thanks to its three fantastic golf courses – The Links, Montagu and Outeniqua. They all have varying terrains spread across acres of land, offering long afternoons spent playing a round of golf, before heading to one of the hotel’s restaurants for a bite to eat.
La Cantina is perfect for families looking for a relaxed Italian meal – including homemade pastas – whilst Monet’s at Fancourt serves up delicious artisan cuisine paired with a scenic vie of the Outeniqua golf course. Overlooking the 18th green on the Montagu course, the trendy Club Lounge and Bar offers the ideal spot to tuck in to a hearty lunch of club house steaks, burgers and cocktail snacks in between rounds of golf. For something a bit more fine-dining, Henry White’s offers classic European cuisine, concentrating on fresh seafood dishes.
If golfing isn’t your forte, there are plenty of other activities to keep the whole family entertained. Guests of Fancourt have access to three gorgeous swimming pools, including one outdoors with a Jacuzzi and a baby pool, whilst older children can splash around in the kids club’s heated indoor pool. There’s also a tranquil roman pool in the gorgeous spa, perfect for those looking to truly relax.
There’s also ample opportunities to play a game of tennis, picnic, cycle and hike, and the Teen Lounge with gaming facilities and Kidz Club for 3-10 year olds offering fun arts and crafts are ideal for families wanting to do their own in during the day.
