Fancourt

Fancourt, South Africa’s premier leisure resort is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, 7 km from the George Airport.  The resort is superbly landscaped on 613 hectares of lush countryside with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as the perfect backdrop.

The Fancourt Hotel has 115 rooms on offer.  Leisure activities on the resort include The Spa with an indoor heated Roman Bath as well as the Leisure Centre which is home to the Kidz Club, teen lounge, gymnasium, cinema, indoor heated and outdoor swimming pool.  Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy tennis, running/walking trails, bird watching and fishing.  A variety of restaurants are available on the resort for your enjoyment.

Fancourt has a choice of three Gary Player designed golf courses all ranked in the Top 15 in South Africa as well as a Golf Academy.

At Fancourt, the appreciation of good food and wine is regarded almost as highly as the game of golf. As such, the estate’s four restaurants each caters to a different occasion, from relaxed family suppers to more bespoke experiences with fine wines to match.

Glorious swimming beaches are easily accessible and mountain biking, horse riding, picnics and hikes can be arranged on request. Sightseeing excursions to the picturesque coastal towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay as well as the historic town of Oudtshoorn are also available.

Fancourt has become a global landmark for business, leisure and golfing travel but its gradual expansion can be traced back to the establishment of the Manor House by its first custodian, Henry Fancourt White.

The late 1880s was a period of grandeur for Henry White, whose role in the development of the commercial infrastructure around the Montagu Pass led to the establishment of the Blanco House – his esteemed family home and predecessor to the current Manor House. Shortly after his passing, the property was auctioned and sold to his son, Ernest Montagu White, who made extensive improvements to the estate. The regrettably early passing of Montagu due to wild mushroom poisoning, saw the property fall into a state of disrepair until in 1960, Dr Krynauw initiated a renovation process that would recapture the splendour of what is now a national monument.

Expanding on the stature of the Manor House, the estate itself was transformed into a hotel and golfing destination in 1989 under the direction of Andrea and Helene Pieterse. Now, under the ownership of Dr Hasso and Sabine Plattner, the Fancourt estate boasts a contemporary outlook on its early beginnings, with award-winning golf courses and unparalleled service offerings, against the backdrop of the ever-present Outeniqua mountain range.

Treatments

The spa at Fancourt offers an extensive range of skin and body treatments, each tailored to indulge the senses, alleviate stress and promote holistic well being. Our packages cater to a broad spectrum of personal preferences from aromatically infused therapies to deep cleansing regimes and our signature Roma Stone Placement Massage. Retreat into pure bliss at the Fancourt Spa and prepare for an experience that will leave you feeling refreshed and nourished.

Our Signature Treatment – Roma Stone Placement Massage, is designed around the healing properties of the Basalt Rock Hot Stone and the nourishing elements of the Soy Lotion Candle.  This massage aids in relaxing and reviving the tissues.  Muscle pain and stiffness in joints is repaired by the heat of the stone enabling blood flow passing on oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body.  To achieve a deeper relaxation and aid in the regulation of blood pressure we suggest following your treatment with 15 minutes in our gently heated Roman Tepidarium.

Heated Roman Bath and Jacuzzi

Providing a contemporary take on ancient culture, Fancourt’s Roman Bath combines the calming effect of water with the detoxifying potential of heat. At 31 degrees, the Roman Bath is a comfortable place to unwind and recharge after a day of golfing or as part of your leisure experience at Fancourt. Weekly water aerobics classes are hosted in this area, which includes a blissful Jacuzzi.

Please note, this is an adults only area.

Sauna and Steam Room

Our sauna and steam room creates the perfect conditions for melting away tensions, stimulating healthy circulation and soothing tired muscles. Gently heated to the optimum temperatures for relaxation and well being, these immaculate facilities are designed to augment the luxurious Fancourt experience.

Tepidarium

In a nod to a time-honoured Roman bathing ritual, the tepidarium houses heated seats that gradually elevate the body’s temperature to improve circulation and promote deep relaxation. The design of this area includes a series of vents which release different essential oils every 5 minutes, treating guests to a heat therapy session coupled with an aromatherapy experience.

Physiotherapy

Fancourt’s therapeutic offerings include an on-site physiotherapist, who provides treatment for injuries as well as expert assistance on restoring mobility and alleviating pain. In addition to physical therapy, our specialist is trained in Aquatic Bodywork Therapy Techniques and provides hydrotherapy services within the spa facility.

Eco & Community

Cupcake Icing Drive 430x240

George Child and Family Welfare

 

Initiated by Sabine Plattner’s patronage of George Child and Family Welfare in 2000, this local NGO is still Fancourt’s key focus today, and in many instances, has been a lifeline for thousands of children and their families. Working with celebrities for fundraising events, including more recently well-known television presenter, Chantal Rutter Dros and Mrs SA finalist, Gela le Roux, these partnerships have not only raised money but more importantly awareness of the George Child and Family Welfare and the important work they do.

Some of the projects Fancourt has initiated are as follows:

  • Annual Cupcake icing drive – icing cupcakes and donating these along with funds raised to the children’s orphanages
  • Santa’s Surprise – giving the children gifts for Christmas
  • Annual Ladies Tea – Fancourt annually hosts a Ladies Tea held on the Estate to raise considerable donations for George Child and Family Welfare.

Rosemoor 430x240

Rosemoor Old Age Home

Every year Fancourt chooses a renovation or upliftment project at the Rosemoor Old Age Home in celebration of Mandela Day. In the build up to Nelson Mandela Day on the 18th July 2017, Fancourt estate members, staff, and Kloppers George (a local appliance store) partnered up to donate a washing machine, chest freezer and an array of healthcare products to Rosemoor Old Age Home, a facility for the impoverished, aged members of the George community. And this was not all, as the Rosemoor ICU room also received a much needed face-lift, including fresh paint on the walls courtesy of Phoenix Painters, repurposed curtains courtesy of Kommaweer Upholsterers and Curtaining, along with new furniture and wall hangings donated by Fancourt.  These projects have naturally made life easier for residents and staff.

Ikama Lethu Golf 430x240

Ikamva Lethu Golf Development Programme

Three Fancourt employees, Montagu and Outeniqua caddy master Joe Mathikge; starter, marshall and beverage cart driver Asanda Ximba, and Duval Lalaphantsi of The Links are the brains behind the Ikamva Lethu Golf Development programme based in Thembalethu, a registered NPO.

The main objective of the organisation, whose Xhosa translation of their name reads ‘our future’, is to provide community service to fellow community members in their residential area with the intention to equip young people with golf skills, mentor them on a healthy lifestyle and assist in their mental and emotional development through the great medium that is golf.
