"The ultimate ocean-side luxury hotel found on the spectacular Garden Route, this boutique property offers the highest standards of service in a relaxed setting."


If you like traditional-style hotels, the Plettenberg is an ideal place to stay, with lovely rooms, an excellent restaurant, and first-class service. However, if you prefer smaller boutique hotels, it may not be the place for you.


The Plettenberg is a magnificent nineteenth-century mansion on the edge of a cliff top overlooking Plettenberg beach. It is the best-known hotel in Plettenberg Bay, one of the most popular stops along the Garden Route. Plett is a lively town with fabulous sandy beaches and some excellent restaurants and bars. The coastline around here is extremely beautiful, so Plett is a perfect base for visiting places such as Nature’s Valley, Keurboomstrand, and Knysna with its beautiful lagoon.


The hotel has 23 rooms and 14 suites, each individually decorated with a spacious ensuite bathroom and air conditioning. It has two infinity pools, its own spa, an informal yet sophisticated cocktail bar, and a first-class restaurant, SeaFood at the Plettenberg, serving modern South African cuisine.

** For families with children under the age of 6 years, we always request a ground floor room or a room without a balcony for safety reasons. If you stay here with us, please ensure this is what you are given.**


There are two beautiful sandy beaches close to the hotel, and some excellent walks, hikes and golf courses within easy reach. There is even bungee jumping and treetop canopy tours for the more adventurous!
