WHERE: South St, Wilderness, 044-877-8000, viewshotel.co.za
WHY WE LOVE IT: Perched high above the endless white powder of Wilderness beach, this boutique hotel certainly makes the most of its spectacular position with 15 of its 17 maritime-meets-modern suites offering panoramic vistas of the ocean. Be sure to soak up the sunset and sea air with a cocktail or two on the rooftop pool deck before dinner.
X-FACTOR: The hotel is in the heart of the Garden Route, ensuring a host of exciting outdoor activities – from birding to bungee jumping – within easy reach; the ideal base for an adventure-packed break.
