Ballito, 26 February 2018: The gentle, rolling hills and pristine beaches of the beautiful KwaZulu Natal north coast are home to one of South Africa’s best-kept holiday secrets – The Eighteenth at Prince’s Grant Golf Estate.
This collection of gorgeous boutique apartments is the perfect destination for families and groups of friends looking for fun and adventure literally on their doorstep, giving them the chance to park the car and forget about it while they relax, unwind and reboot.
As the name suggests, The Eighteenth is ideally positioned on Prince’s Grant on the final fairway of its championship golf course, overlooking tennis and squash courts and a sparkling swimming pool, and within easy walking distance of a private beach, complete with its own sheltered lagoon, This is where the warm waters of the Indian Ocean ebb and flow over 2km of golden sand bordered by a beautiful coastal forest.
A short drive from the pretty coastal village of Ballito and King Shaka International Airport, guests at The Eighteenth enjoy unlimited access to Prince’s Grant’s range of facilities and activities. There is no need to stress about cooking the perfect meal – The Eighteenth is a short walk from Prince’s Grant’s Club House, bars and excellent restaurants.
Each of The Eighteenth’s air-conditioned apartments has been designed to make the most of the natural environment, with lots of light, views over the surroundings and outside entertainment areas with built-in braais to make the most of the great, and beautiful outdoors.
Decor in the two and three-bedroom apartments is a fusion of contemporary design and barefoot, beachside luxury, with modern furniture, plush textiles and linen, clean lines, open-plan living areas and state-of-the-art appliances and finishes. Each apartment has its own satellite TV and fully-equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are all airconditioned and have their own en-suite bathrooms.
But it’s outside where the adventure awaits! One guest per booking can be nominated as the “golf member” for the duration of their stay. This will entitle this person to play one complimentary round of golf per day on Prince’s Grant’s award-winning Peter Matkovitch-designed course. You can also go mountain biking through the estate and the surrounding cane fields, or hike along the beach and into the coastal forest for a spot of bird watching – more than 230 species have been recorded on the estate, so binoculars are a must.
Swimming is easy in either the ocean (lifeguards are on duty during peak season) or in one of the estate’s crystal-clear pools. Children are also well catered for, with dedicated play areas boasting jungle gyms and a host of other exciting activities, like canoeing on the lagoon.
At the end of the day you can relax on your private terrace and toast the setting sun with a loved one, family or friends, knowing that you have spent quality time with them during your stay at The Eighteenth, and that you’ve made lifelong memories in the process.
