22808: Nelson Mandela’s Resort Vacation

Befitting a man of his stature, former South African president Nelson Mandela and his wife Gracia Machal enjoyed the comforts of a modern day castle during a recent 10-day getaway to the Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa in the town of Knysna. Its crenelated facade facing the golden sands of Noetzie Beach and the beckoning blue waves of the Indian Ocean, the fairytale accommodation is embraced by the verdant foliage of the Outeniqua Mountains– a combination that offers serenity and seclusion for its guests. Patrons lodging in the resort’s two castles as well as the 78-suite retreat have the opportunity to savor the cuisine at Zachary’s restaurant and sample the rejuvenating therapies offered at Pezula Spa, which was voted among the top 15 overseas hotels spas by the readers of Conde Nast Traveller.
