The resort

Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa is the culmination of the vision of Pezula Group Chairman Keith Stewart whose dream was to create a luxury resort in one of the most exquisite locations in the world. Stewart, born in the UK and raised in Zimbabwe, returned to Africa in the 1990s having made his mark in America. His love of Africa brought him to the Garden Route in 2000 where he bought the land he was to call Pezula, an African word meaning "high up with the gods", which he describes as "the most perfect place on earth." Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa. The property is bordered by the rugged cliffs of the Southern Cape coast, the Sinclair Nature Reserve and the Eastern Head of Knysna. It has panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and Knysna Lagoon.

Stewart's primary goal was the restoration of the land. "For me the opportunity and, indeed, the responsibility to transform a landscape that had been exploited for over 100 years, and to rehabilitate the prime acreage of South Africa's coastline is both exhilarating and rewarding," he says. Pezula Resort Hotel & SpaHe began by clearing 400 ha of alien vegetation and trees and obtained approval to develop an eco friendly, low density private residential estate, Pezula Private Estate, which has been recognised as the Most Environmentally Aware Development in the World, and Best Luxury Development in the World. He then purchased the adjacent Sparrebosch Golf Course, renamed it Pezula Championship Course and set about revamping the Clubhouse.
