About St James Boutique Hotel of Knysna

Located on the shores of the renowned Knysna Lagoon, the St James Boutique Hotel of Knysna is an exclusive, privately-owned five-star country house hotel. Its luxurious Lady Anne Suite in The Manor House and the Superior Suites and Deluxe Suites in The Courtyard boast views of the iconic Knysna Heads, while two Deluxe Suites in The Manor House overlook the verdant three-acre garden that welcomes a variety of local birdlife. Oozing old-world charm, this hotel’s elegant country décor will make guests feel at home in no time. Stroll through the garden and peek inside the Green House to see what plants are in bloom, while two large swimming pools provide ample opportunity to relax and soak up the sun. The Pentanque pit is the place to enjoy a spot of boules, while anglers can try their luck fishing off the private jetty. For something more tranquil, canoes are available for guests keen to paddle out onto the lagoon. All rooms are stylishly furnished and feature an en-suite bathroom, spacious lounge, satellite television and mini bar. The hotel’s Twin Palm Restaurant serves delicious meals made from locally-sourced produce on a daily basis with the menu changing regularly. At the end of a long day exploring the Garden Route, relax and unwind on the veranda or in front of a crackling log fire in the main lounge while sipping on a delicious vintage from the hotel’s wine cellar, or from the bar’s great selection of whisky and local craft gins.
