Most names shouldn’t be taken literally, but Pearl of Oudtshoorn really is like its namesake; a hidden gem amongst the mountains, though of course, it’s not situated in the mouth of a large oyster. Nestled between the Outeniqua and Swartberg mountain ranges, it’s actually in a far better location, because while urban civilization has certain advantages, like being able to do your month’s grocery shopping on the side of the road, it also has smog and traffic which greatly detract from its appeal.
In keeping with the natural feel of its splendid surroundings, the hotel is an ode to nature – though far more luxurious than a bed of ferns. Sumptuously decorated and comfortable enough to mistake for home, the rooms overlook the cool waters of the swimming pool which is perfect for summertime shenanigans and splashing. For those more historically and culturally inclined, a stay at the Pearl of Oudtshoorn also means you’re within shouting distance of such amazing attractions as the Cango Caves and Wildlife Ranch and the reason Oudtshoorn is famous Ostrich Show Farms.
Whether it’s you and some buddies kicking up your feet in quasi-rural splendour or you’re taking the family out for some familial bonding amongst mountains and nature, the Pearl of Oudtshoorn is the perfect place to do it.
Strange Fact: A hotel in the Saharan desert offers free accommodation to anyone who can collect all twenty seven coconuts scattered throughout their maze. Only two people in the hotel’s history have managed to complete this task.
