The Northern Cape, South Africa’s largest province, and fast-becoming one of the country’s favourite holiday destinations, has the ideal of ‘We go to a better life’

Nestled in Upington, on the bank of the Orange River, Pecanwood Manor offers guests an escape from urban reality in favour of embracing the provincial motto.

Pecanwood Manor, recently opened in January 2016, is located on the edge of a pecan nut plantation, overlooking spectacular and tranquil views of a pecan tree forest. Renovated from an old farmhouse that was built in the 1960s, Pecanwood Manor is a sought after destination for guests looking for beautifully decorated, luxurious accommodation.

Situated 800 metres from the Orange River, Pecanwood Manor exuberates serenity and luxury with its eight en-suite rooms and four-star grading. In addition to the opulent accommodation, an event venue is also available to guests, offering the ideal venue for conferences and weddings.

Luxury hotel

On the conceptualisation of Pecanwood Manor, co-founder, Ralene van der Merwe, says “The idea to open up a luxurious hotel sprung from my passion for people, creativity and challenges. My co-founder, Pieter Roos, and I enjoyed every moment of making magic out of an old, tattered home and hope to share the magic we’ve built with our guests”.

With in-house, gourmet meals, small-to-medium size event planning, airport shuttle facilities, wine pairing events and the most delicious connoisseur coffee in town, Pecanwood Manor is a cut above the rest.
