Families have the option of booking three options that combine various rooms to make up a 4-bedroom family wing, or an enclosed 2-bedroom unit with a shared entrance or an inter-leading room with a shared bathroom.

Intle Boutique Hotel by Mantis lies at the centre of the best attractions along South Africa’s coast as it transitions from Garden Route forests and rugged beaches to the Eastern Cape’s dune ranges, rivers, and wild bushveld. A typical drive to connect you to these bucket-list destinations is about 5 hours; however, a stay at Intle breaks the long journey and allows travellers to see more of the rich culture and adventurous spirit of South Africa. Guests can drive to Intle Boutique Hotel from the Garden Route along the N2, or fly in and drive from Port Elizabeth International Airport or the game reserve of the Eastern Cape.
