The Plettenberg

The Plettenberg, a 5-star Relais & Chateaux Hotel, is built on a rocky headland with breathtaking vistas.

Situated in the heart of one of South Africa’s most spectacular Garden Route towns, The Plettenberg is an exquisite five star hotel. A location in a league of its own, the hotel sits on a rocky headland in the middle of town, overlooking miles of sandy beaches, the Otteniqua Mountains and Formosa Bay. The Plettenberg boasts 37 rooms and suites, including two villas, all with breathtaking vistas. Individually decorated in classical elegance, rooms vary in size and views but all feature en-suite bathrooms, under-floor heating and air-conditioning. Other special touches include slippers, tea and coffee delivered in the morning, a welcome bottle of wine and complimentary local newspapers and WiFi. With unrivalled views, SeaFood at The Plettenberg offers sophisticated evening dining, lazy poolside lunches and delicious breakfasts. The Sandbar is a chic cocktail bar, modern and intimate, laid back yet glamorous. The two iconic hotel infinity pools merge visually with the ocean beyond and each of the villas has a private sundeck and swimming pool. The Carchele Beauty Spa offers an extensive range of treatments (additional charge). From its ideal location The Plettenberg is within walking distance of Central Beach, and a variety of shops and local restaurants. It is a short drive to many of the Garden Route’s excellent outdoor activities from dolphin and whale watching to elephant interactions, treetop canopy tours and nature reserves.

The Beach House and Look-Out Villa are family friendly private getaways situated close to the main hotel, with their own swimming pools and access to all hotel facilities.
