This is Why Fancourt Hits the Nail on the Head as a Conference Venue

So, how do you differentiate one conference venue from another? At Fancourt the answer is clear. Your choice of business venue should offer exclusivity, style and space that can be configured to your requirements, be it a launch for over a hundred people or a meeting for a few.

Fancourt takes it one step further with a team of conference specialists who’ll ensure a seamless technological interface and behind-the-scenes backup.

The hotel believes that every conference or meeting should start with a delicious buffet breakfast. In fact, it takes its breakfast buffet so seriously that it has a team of specialist chefs who are trained in the art of making the perfect egg, and all bread and confectionary as well as cured hams are made in-house. Even the honey is sourced from the estate apiary.

The executive chef will design a custom menu for your guests, while the hotel’s dedicated team of onsite co-ordinators will arrange the room and your itinerary to make sure everything runs like clockwork, all under strict hygiene practices, audited by an external company which does regular laboratory tests on food products, hands and work surfaces. Executive Chef, Desmond Morgan says temperature checks are recorded daily and measures include colour-coded chopping boards and live cooking stations for breakfast with screens and cooked to order meals, “All the halfway houses also have their own kitchens and the meal is prepared to order.” A wide range of options are on offer to specific diary requirements like Halaal, vegan or vegetarian.


If space is a luxury, this hotel celebrates every inch of it, with over 600 hectares to be exact. Add that to strict protocols with an ongoing training of staff to adhere to the strictest sanitation standards and you have nothing to worry about than that next big business idea or product launch.

From the smallest executive boardrooms to the large hall, the mood lighting, contemporary design and attention to detail make every space look and feel unique, no matter the conference size, occasion or budget.


The hotel is known for its high standards and spirit of service, which is why provides business offerings within its Gary Player designed golf-courses. Work hard and play hard is an adage that perfects explains the philosophy behind the state-of-the-art amenities.

It’s hard to find a centrally located hotel that offers the big three in VIP security – safety, privacy and access. The hotel delivers, with a single, one-way road that loops around the hotel to ensure secure access and executive suites that offer apartment-style privacy including private, dining and lounge areas.
