Welcome to

SOUL Rainbows End


Elevated high above the ocean on the Knysna West Head, surrounded by an abundance of beautiful indigenous fynbos, a short distance from some of the world’s most acclaimed blue flag beaches, SOUL Rainbows End offers you the perfect hide-away from every day life, feeding your soul with the beauty of our surroundings and the warmth of our hospitality. 

This SOUL Villa is designed to give you uninterrupted views of the ocean and the fynbos reserve all around you, with a colony of cormorants nesting on the cliffs, majestic humpback whales with their newly born calves and hundreds of dolphins playing in the waves below, bush-buck roaming freely amongst the fynbos and the Ocean Hawk and Common Buzzards making the skies above you their domain. 

Experience all of this from the comfort of any of our three tastefully decorated rooms, or from the heart of our SOUL villa, where you can forget about time in our beautiful lounges, enjoy dinner on our Al Fresco dining deck or enjoy the sun on your back by the pool. At night, the lights from Knysna shimmer like diamonds far off in the dark, some early mornings you will be surrounded by a blanket of white mist, later settling below you, making you believe you are floating on the clouds. The original photo art which is scattered all over our villa, will write you a story of travel and far off places.

Whether you want to just relax and recharge your soul, have a romantic break away with your loved one, experience a boat cruise on the Knysna Lagoon, or join the dolphins frolicking in the ocean waves, spend a day on the beach, take a walk through the fynbos and learn more about this mesmerizing eco-system, we offer it all. Come and join us, make yourself at home and feel your soul fill up with the warmth only SOUL can offer you. 


Get spoilt from the moment you arrive. We offer a scrumptious breakfast to start off your day, hot beverages and bottled water in your room and then to end off your day, join us for a delicious real South African dinner, which brings together all the beautiful cultures of our Rainbow nation. A bowl of fresh fruit, home-bake pastries and tea and coffee will always be ready for you to enjoy any time during the day. Take a leisurely unguided walk through the reserve or make use of our free Wi-Fi to keep in touch with family and friends or to upload your memories of the day. For those who prefer not to self-drive through the reserve to the villa, we can arrange arrival and departure transfers, with safe parking for your vehicle off the reserve, so you can sit back and enjoy the ride through the reserve on your way to your SOUL destination. 


As extra optionals, not included in the rates, we do also offer lunches, picnic baskets, alcoholic and soft-drink beverages, spa treatments in the privacy of your own room, all the various activities in and around the reserve, guided nature walks, lagoon cruises, airport transfers and much, much more.  


SOUL Rainbows End is located at the edge of the cliffs on the furthest point of the Knysna West Head, in a small, but unique fynbos reserve accessible from Brenton-on-Sea. The location is pure magic, with its quiet and unsurpassed beauty, only the crashing of the waves below, like an orchestra, playing nature’s music in your ears.  


The surrounding area offers a never-ending list of activities. You can enjoy nature’s beauty by going on a guided hike on the reserve, going on a sunset lagoon cruise, dolphin and whale watching on the ocean, canoeing, get a bird’s eye view paragliding over the beautiful coastal area of Sedgefield or Wilderness. Play golf at some of the world’s best golf courses such as Pezula and Simola. Explore the colourful little town of Knysna, enjoy what the local restaurants have to offer. Go for a walk or a swim at the sun-kissed Brenton-on-Sea beach, the list goes on.
