The Benefit of Choice

Self-catering accommodation offers the ability to choose your own time schedule and your own food. This is a big advantage for all visitors – families might have separate mealtimes for adults and children; couples might want to have a romantic dinner; and friends could each have their own cravings satisfied, without splitting up the group. And a lie-in won’t cause you to miss breakfast! It is also cheaper making your own food than eating at a restaurant for your entire holiday. Our cottages have both kitchen and braai facilities – spoiled for choice!

Fit to Budget

We offer a variety of self-catering accommodations. This is beneficial as you can choose which cottage or apartments would best fit your budget. This is a particularly successful tip for travelling cheaper.

If you are travelling in a large group, self-catering accommodation is often cheaper than staying in hotels. Whether you are heading on a family trip, a friends’ getaway, or a bonding exercise with colleagues, self-catering often offers the benefit of having everyone close by but with their individual spaces. Montagu Springs has spaces suitable for 2-4 people, including 7 villas and 56 chalets.

More Space

This is often the crucial addition to a successful getaway – space! Self-catering accommodations often have communal spaces, like the kitchen and the lounge, while offering private spaces when you need some alone-time. At our resort we offer lots of outdoor space, a swimming pool, and a games room, should you require some peace and quiet.


Privacy is a big perk to self-catering accommodation – there is no sharing of eating spaces, bathrooms, and lounges with those outside of your travel group. Your space is completely yours.

Experience Life as a Local

Montagu has so much to offer! Whether you are going for a game-drive, hiking, or just relaxing, experiencing life as a local is easy at the resort. The peaceful vibe of Montagu and the surroundings extends to the resort, and you can’t help but feel serene. If you are looking for any tips on the local life, feel free to ask our staff for recommendations!

Self-catering holidays are the way to go if you are looking for a slice of freedom and independence while still being cared for. The necessary home comforts are provided, along with privacy, space, and choice. Head to Montagu Springs to feel the sun on your skin and experience relaxation at its most comfortable. We look forward to welcoming you to our breath-taking corner of the world!
