Sandals Guesthouse, a thatched guesthouse decorated in an Afro-Caribbean style, is set amongst lush indigenous milkwood trees in the beautiful town of St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape.

The idyllic village of St Francis Bay is one of the most picturesque seaside towns in South Africa thanks to the meandering canals and building style of white houses and thatch or black tiled roofs. In keeping with the architectural style, Sandals Guest House is white-washed and thatch-roofed on the outside, but the interior is more reminiscent of a Caribbean resort with its vibrant colours and tropical influences.

Sandals Guest House offers 11 spacious and individually decorated bedrooms all boasting extra-length beds and en-suite bathrooms with showers. All 10 luxury rooms have sliding doors which open onto a private balcony or tropical garden for your comfort and relaxation. The ambience of this boutique guest house is a unique blend of superb hospitality, cuisine and service.

The palm fringed pool, fully licensed pool bar and craggy rocks create a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere for guests to unwind. Sandals offers guests excellent service and attention to detail ensuring every little luxury and comfort is tended to. Sandals is only 150 metres from the main beach and is in close proximity to the village centre. It is the definitive getaway for avid golfers, surfers, adventure-seekers and those who want an escape from the city.
