Within shouting distance of all the activities that first
attracted all to the quaint village, the four-star Knysna Terrace is the most
convenient luxury accommodation Knysna has to offer. Before you hit the pillows
in your magnificently decorated en-suite room, you can enjoy a day of
spot-the-elephant in Knysna Park or play pirate with a Lagoon Cruise.
Sweeping views of the lagoon from a private balcony provide
the ideal place to watch the sun take its nightly nap or ensure that you and
your binoculars are the first to spot the elusive Knysna-ness monster. Whether
you spend your days on the look-out for Knysna’s own ‘Nessie’ or hitting a few
dimpled balls on the green at the Pezula or Simola Golf Courses, you’re sure to
build up an appetite. Enjoy your breakfast at the Terrace, with a continental
breakfast then take advantage of the delicious food in the vicinity at one of
the four local restaurants, to make sure your tummy is taken care of.
Whether you’re in search of the freshest air, shell-dwelling lagoon creatures or just an escape from traffic and your day job, a stay at Knysna Terrace is the perfect way to achieve all three.Lagoon Fact: Many tourists to Knysna have enquired as to why so many stalls sell t-shirts reading: Don’t know where your keys are?
