The Plettenberg Hotel

Garden Route, South Africa

Set on a rugged cliff along the breath-taking Plettenberg Bay, The Plettenberg Hotel offers a modern chic vibe to the beautiful Garden Route. With unbeatable views of the Indian Ocean and the wonderful whales and dolphins that reside there, this is a seaside hotel at its most stylish.

There are 35 rooms and suites altogether, all adopting a slight nautical theme clearly inspired by the hotel’s location. The Double Rooms come with standard amenities, whilst the Luxury Doubles also feature under floor heating and a balcony with sea views. Suites have the same amenities, plus a lounge, and the Premier Suites are so because of their individual décor.

Large parties will love the fully equipped Beach House with exclusive butler service, a pool and an outdoor deck, whilst the Lookout Villa’s views of the bay are just phenomenal.

Overlooking Formosa Bay, a stay at The Plettenberg graces you with plenty of activities and places to see nearby. The sugary sands of Central Beach are only a short distance away, whilst the cliff-side surroundings make for great hiking terrain. Scuba diving and boating shouldn’t go amiss either, and how better to finish it off than with a wine tasting session? Back at the hotel, the two swimming pools and Fresh Wellness Spa offer serene spots to fully relax.

The hotel’s SeaFood Restaurant is a wonderful place to dine, with unsurpassed views of the ocean and a contemporary twist on authentic South African cuisine. If you fancy a refreshing cocktail in a glamorous yet laidback setting, look no further than The Sandbar, whilst the Wine Cellar is ideal for a romantic meal for two, with some of the most exquisite South African wines.
