The awards, now in its sixth year, honour the people behind these outstanding properties.

South Africa’s beautiful country's iconic landscape and wildlife – paired with impeccable service and the warmest of welcomes in the world – has ensured four stunning South African boutique hotels top spots among the world's best boutique hotels.

This is according to the World Boutique Hotel Awards 2016, recently announced at a gala event at the Merchant Taylors’ Hall in London.

At the event, Africa’s Best Classic Boutique Hotel for 2016 was awarded to Grand Dédale Country House in Wellington, while the very best Honeymoon Hideaway on the continent this year goes to Pondoro Game Lodge in Hoedspruit.

The Best Private Villa in Africa for 2017 is 26 Sunset Villa overlooking the iconic Llandudno beach in Cape Town, while Africa’s Best Relaxation Retreat was named Rhulani Safari Lodge in Madikwe.

Rhulani Safari Lodge in the North West province was also recently named the world's very best luxury bush lodge at the Luxury Hotel Awards.
