The Plettenberg Hotel

The Plettenberg Hotel

If you are looking for a seaside escape with breathtaking views of the ocean, endless pristine beaches and a place where whales and dolphin pods play happily in the surf, then look no further than The Plettenberg. Perched on a rocky headland overlooking Plettenberg Bay, this fabulous hotel offers a level of elegant luxury that will be beyond your expectations.

Cool and stylish accommodation

Designed with thoughtful attention to detail, each of the sumptuous rooms at The Plettenberg, from luxury suites to the Lookout Villa and the Beach House, are simply stunning. Cool whites combine with tasteful pastels for a serene and tranquil haven, and plush, comfortable furniture is totally relaxing. Step out onto private balconies and terraces to drink in the gorgeous vistas, immerse yourself in opulent bathrooms, while every modern amenity is at hand.

Take a culinary journey

A world of flavours are on offer at Seafood at The Plettenberg, the restaurant has a view second to none and is the best place to watch some spectacular sunsets. Prepared from local sustainable produce fresh from the bay, the menus are exciting and innovative. Take High Tea on the terrace, a decadent affair full of savoury bites and sweet delights, and as the sun goes down relax and sample a signature cocktail at The Sandbar lounge bar.

Create some memories

A stay at The Plettenberg is a chance to spend some quality family time and make some truly exciting memories. Visit an elephant sanctuary, take a canopy tour or hike up into the lush green forests. With miles of golden beaches there are a host of watersports on offer too, from kayaking to body-surfing. The rugged peninsula is an adventure playground waiting to be explored. After the excitement, relax with a soothing therapy in the hotel spa, where rejuvenating treatments will prepare you for the next adventure.

The Plettenberg, a place where dreams become reality and memories are made.

before you go

Everything you need to know before planning your dream trip

When to travel
November to February is the busiest time, but March to April and September to October are popular. Whale watchers should visit July to October, whilst May to October is a good time for safaris – it can get cold on game drives so pack a fleece
How to get there
Your holiday will begin with a British Airways or Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to Johannesburg, or British Airways to Cape Town – the average flying time about 11 hours, although as there is only a 1 hour time difference there’s no tedious jet lag
