Conrad Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa

Overlooking the Indian Ocean from its perch atop the East Head of the Knysna Lagoon, this beautiful, multi-award-winning Resort and Spa which opened its doors in 2005, offers families and friends an incomparable lifestyle destination.

Aside from the magnificent championship links course which is reminiscent of Gleneagles in the Scottish Highlands and Pebble Beach on the Monterey coastline, there is a myriad of eclectic activities at this fabulous resort.

While you are enjoying a pampering spa or a round of golf, there are a lot of activities for the children, including the Estate’s Barnyard & Stables with its animal touch farm. Guests can enjoy horse riding and walk the nature trails through the Estate’s indigenous forests or take canoe trips up the Noetzie River. A shuttle service from the hotel also takes guests to secluded Noetzie beach where you can spend a lazy day soaking up the sun on glittering white sands while enjoying a sumptuous picnic.


Multi-award winning Zachary’s Restaurant is a world-class gourmet restaurant with a focus on local ingredients and inspired by global influences. The restaurant’s Sommelier is on hand to make expert recommendations for food and wine pairings.

Zachary’s Private Dining Room is a beautifully decorated, intimate space which looks onto the exquisitely designed hotel cellar and caters for up to 10 guests in a private party. Diners may eat à la carte or create a special menu with Executive Chef Geoffrey Murray.

Zachary’s Lounge has two fireplaces and looks onto Zachary’s Terrace and the hotel swimming pool. In winter months, roaring log fires blaze all day making it an ideal venue for informal dining. Children are welcome and are catered for with special Kiddies menus.

Dine al fresco on Zachary’s Terrace next to the pool area serves breakfast, lunch and informal dinners, as well as light meals throughout the day. A special Kiddies menu is available.

Café Z , the funky new bistro on the lower level of the hotel offers guests and locals a more casual dining option to the award-winning fine dining restaurant, Zachary’s. The food is simple and wholesome, prepared from the fresh produce grown in the resort’s vegetable and herb garden, and sourced from local producers.
