Getting There: Good luck reaching the hotel if you didn’t rent a car. There are taxi drivers at the airport who will take you to the resort but prices must be negotiated.


I have used my Hilton Stay Certificates poorly. The first was at the Conrad Tokyo where I was out all hours and didn’t make use of the hotel. The second was at the Conrad Pezula located near Knysna, South Africa. In an effort to see more than beautiful Cape Town, I thought I would explore other parts of the country. At the same time, I was looking for a great award redemption. A room at the Conrad Pezula goes for $700 a night so I made the booking.

I soon learned there is a problem booking based on points not on practicality. First, I had to fly into Knysna. Then I had to take a taxi to the hotel. Then I had to tolerate the rain. Then I had to take a bus the next day to Port Elizabeth to catch my flight to Durban. I had no time to relax, to explore the city, or to appreciate the hotel. On paper, it was a great hotel redemption. In reality, it was a waste of time.

Here’s the brief hotel review:

Now that I’m a golfer, I would recommend a trip to the Conrad Pezula as its the home of the Pezula Championship Golf Course. Apart from that, given my short duration and sheer exhaustion upon arrival, I do not have much to say about this resort besides the fact that the one bedroom suite was spectacular and the grounds were well kept. Quite the shame but hopefully the travel advice written above made it worth the read.
