Fancourt, South Africa’s premier lifestyle resort, is nestled in the heart of South Africa’s Garden Route, 7 km from George Airport. The resort lies on 613 hectares of pristine countryside sheltered by the Outeniqua Mountains.

The Fancourt Hotel offers the discerning visitor 115 luxurious rooms and suites. These are perfectly suited for local and international families, couples, golfers and those simply looking for a warm, relaxed and entertaining Garden Route retreat.

Discover Fancourt’s many leisure activities including The Spa with an indoor heated Roman Bath and world class wellness treatments. The Leisure Centre offers an array of facilities and activities to keep guests of all ages and interests entertained. The Centre houses the popular Kidz Club, teen lounge, gymnasium, cinema, indoor heated and outdoor swimming pool.  Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy tennis, running and walking trails, bird watching and fishing. Four top restaurants each offer a distinctive dining experience to appeal to every palate.

Fancourt is an ideal base from which to explore the Garden Route. Glorious swimming beaches are easily accessible and mountain biking, horse riding, picnics and hikes can be arranged. Guests can book sightseeing excursions to the nearby coastal towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay as well as historic Oudtshoorn.

With Fancourt’s three golf courses consistently ranking among Golf Digest’s top 20 courses in the country, golfers can tee off in paradise against the backdrop of the towering Outeniqua Mountains that loom large over the Garden Route town of George. In addition to its proud legacy of sporting excellence, Fancourt’s three golf courses were designed by a dynamic team spearheaded by Gary Player and the estate’s owner, Dr. Hasso Plattner. The Links, a privately owned club, is currently No. 1 in South Africa (Golf Digest Rankings 2018), while the Montagu and Outeniqua courses both ranked within the Top 20. Golfers also have access to comprehensive practice facilities, a Golf Academy and a fully equipped Pro Shop, completing Fancourt’s five-star golfing experience
