The Plettenberg, an exclusive hotel for the most discerning traveller, occupies a unique position on a dramatic rocky headland overlooking two magnificent beaches, and is justifiably known as “The Jewel of the Garden Route”.

A member of Relais & Chateaux, The Plettenberg provides its guests with elegant and comfortable surroundings and superb service. The 40 rooms and suites are split between two wings and are exquisitely furnished with antiques and original South African art. The Suites also have a separate living area.

Facilities include an intimate restaurant and comfortable bar in the original wing, whilst both wings have a lounge, sun deck, terrace and a swimming pool. Continental breakfast, light lunches and scrumptious teas are served in the enclosed terrace of the Blue Wing.

There are also two superb villas: Lookout Villa with three en-suite bedrooms, and the Beach House with two en-suite bedrooms. Both have superb views out over the bay, their own swimming pools and 24 hour butler service. Guests staying at the villas also have access to all the facilities at the hotel.

The beach and town of Plettenberg Bay are just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Dolphins are frequently seen from the hotel swimming in the waves and from June to November southern right whales mate and calve in the bay.
