We canceled our last night at our hotel in Knysna, just to make it possible to spent one night at Kurland Hotel.
Half an hour in the atmosphere here (the staff, the terrace, the dinning room, but not least the suites, convinced us, that we could not go all the way back to Denmark without this very short stay.
When you read the other review, it has all been written, so we will just confirm, that every single complement could not be expressed better.
The Management, the Staff, the Food, the Terrace, the Setting, but not least the Suites, where all out of this world.
We have travelled all over the world, at stayed on a lot on other great Hotels, but never felt this warm and personal atmosphere.
Neither have we seen so tasteful and at the same time daring decorations all over the place, and off course all the Roses.
We can only recommend the reader of these lines, to pay Peter Behr and his crew a visit.

- Ambassador to the finer things in life, Kurland is the ideal family and honeymoon retreat along The Garden Route. Situated in the foothills of the Western Cape Mountains on on a vast and beautiful private estate, complete with its own polo club, Kurland hotel is the stuff of holiday fantasies. This luxury boutique hotel, within reach of secluded beaches and a great variety of activities, has buckets of character, a never-be-bored menu of things to do, fine cuisine and staff who know the true meaning of the word ‘hospitality’.Over 50yrs ago Baron Peter Behr discovered a coastal paradise of exquisite beauty near Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route in South Africa and purchased the estate which he named Kurland after the Baltic province where he was born. In 2000, Behr’s grandson Peter, and his wife Dianne, transformed the family homestead into a Luxury Boutique Hotel which sits at the heart of a 1700 acre estate of stunning natural beauty, perfect for country pursuits. Today, Kurland is a peaceful and luxurious sanctuary which offers highly personalised service, fine cuisine and excellent facilities.
