Augusta Bay is surrounded by a cobalt sea swirling between towering monoliths of rock, a sparkling estuarine lagoon, lush indigenous forests and one perfect fairway after another. These are just some of the elements which make the Augusta Bay experience as unique as it is magnificent.

Our business is hospitality and we take this to a new level of excellence at our unique and beautiful guest house nestled against the Eastern Head of the Knysna lagoon. Nine beautifully appointed suites all fully air conditioned, offer our discerning guests a luxurious way to enjoy the natural beauty of their surroundings.
