Simola is Knysna's newest upmarket development and no expense has been spared in unlocking its true potential. All who visit, play or live at Simola applaud it rapturously. Jack Nicklaus designed the stunning signature 18-hole golf course around the lush indigenous vegetation and forests and the result is one of the most stunning new courses of the millennium. The five star hotel which opened last December has an exceptional spa and restaurant with views that are arguably the best in Knysna.
The 325ha estate is located high above the town and looks out across the Knysna Lagoon to the famous Heads and beyond to the sea. On either side are hills and valleys of lush vegetation which point to the Outeniqua Mountains in the distance. To complement the exquisite natural beauty of the Estate, the developers have added top class facilities which contribute to an enviable lifestyle for its residents. Activities include trails for walking, hiking, jogging and cycling, bird watching, picnics, fishing and mountain biking. All within an upmarket gated community.
