Perched on a rocky headland in Plettenberg Bay, The Plettenberg boasts breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and endless stretches of golden sand, framed against a mountain backdrop. Guest rooms and suites are elegantly decorated with botanical prints and a colour palette inspired by the bay.
Those with a sea view, offer a balcony or terrace from where you may be fortunate enough to catch a glance of passing whales or dolphins. The two-bedroom Beach House and three-bedroom Lookout Villa come with their own spacious private decks and pools. Days can be spent exploring the local area with its temperate climate, fabulous beaches, breathtaking scenery, flourishing creative community and annual programme of festivals. The hotel’s Fresh Wellness Spa offers a space to unwind and recharge, where natural and indigenous plant or marine based ingredients are used to massage and soothe.
SeaFood is The Plettenberg’s signature restaurant, opening for lunch and dinner. Tables indoors offer beautiful views of the pool and ocean, while the outdoor terrace provides mesmerising ocean panoramas, particularly at sunset. The menu features sustainable seafood dishes, such as Mossel Bay Sole or Blackened Tuna Tataki, alongside a selection of meats and vegetables. From the more relaxed café menu, don’t miss the opportunity to try ‘Proper Fish and Chips.’ Afterwards, perhaps join the locals in The Sandbar, and be sure to ask the barman for a Mermaid’s Dream Martini.
