The Sands at St Francis

Named for the glistening white sandy beaches bordering this stunning boutique hotel on the pristine St Francis coastline, The Sands is a welcome and indulgent reprieve from the stresses of everyday life. The relaxed and informal atmosphere is reflected in the contemporary African beach style decor throughout this beautiful homestead. Soak up the summer sun on one of the secluded pool decks, relax in the steam room or enjoy a refreshing Jacuzzi, how you choose to spend your days is entirely up to you.


The Octagon Restaurant offers diners 300 degree vistas of the glistening Indian Ocean. Generous breakfasts, light lunches and gourmet dinners are served with flair. The Director’s Cellar offers a superb selection of estate wines to compliment every dish.


The bewitching bedrooms are all individually decorated in modern seas-side Afro chic, with gorgeous jewelled tones throughout.

All guest rooms enjoy air-conditioning, a mini-bar, tea and coffee station, hairdryer, television and safe as standard amenities.

The spacious and luxurious bathrooms have separate showers and Jacuzzi bath tubs and bidets as standard features with all the luxuries you have come to expect from exclusive establishments, like heated towel rails, thick fluffy towels and bathrobes and under-floor heating.
