Hunter`s Country House is an exclusive private hotel set in the heart of the magnificent Garden Route of South Africa.
Situated just 10 kilometres west of South Africa`s premier resort town of Plettenberg Bay, the hotel offers a unique combination of attractions.
Guests are a mere eight minutes drive from the pick of the country`s beaches; in a superb setting of beautifully manicured gardens, framed by the majestic Tsitsikama Mountains and surrounded by rich indigenous forests.
Three intimate Baronial dining rooms with silver and candlelight are the perfect setting for the gastronomic cuisine. A wine cellar houses some of the Cape`s finest wines while the sun lounge and main lounge with its upstairs library and antique fireplace add to the charm of the main house.
A sun drenched conservatory is ideal for hearty breakfasts and seats up to 50 guests for functions. Enjoy scenic walks and private forest trails, bird-watch, visit Jill`s Antiques or relax at the pool or one of our garden terrace areas.
Conference facilities are available as well as a "Chapel in the Forest" ideal for weddings (maximum 45 guests).
Relax in the homely atmosphere of the main lounge with its open hearth and well stocked library, or for sun lovers at the picturesque and secluded outdoor living areas, with its sparkling pool and range of amenities.
Hunter`s is regrettably not suitable for children under 12.
The gracious, original thatched homestead, now housing beautifully appointed candle lit dining rooms, cosy lounges and sun drenched conservatory, is surrounded by twenty three luxurious garden suites, unique to this award winning property.
The suites have king or twin beds, ceiling fan, mini bar, safe, television, radio/alarm, tea and coffee making facilities, telephone, hairdryer and bathrobes, are individually decorated and antique furnished with fire places, private patios and views of the forest.
With privacy and comfort paramount in their design, the Cape Colonial style Orchard Suites and thatched Garden Suites are individually decorated and antique furnished.
Each has an open fireplace with private patio and all the comforts one would expect from a Relais & Chateaux property.
Six Premier Suites offer even greater levels of comfort with their position and size.
Two Classic Suites with covered patio's, private swimming pool with decks, separate lounge/dining room and indoor/outdoor showers are indeed a treat.
The ultimate, however, is the Forest Suite with separate dining room, lounges, butlers kitchen and private swimming pool.
