The Plettenberg Hotel , PLETTENBERG BAY, South Africa
When you’re exploring somewhere as mesmerising as the Garden Route, you’ll want to stay somewhere that’s guaranteed to knock your socks off. And The Plettenberg – probably the area’s prettiest hotel – is just that.
Breathtaking is the only way to describe the views of the sea and mountains of Plettenberg Bay. And from the outside in, this place is divine.
The 37 individually-designed rooms are oh-so-inviting with charming, homely detailing and magnificent ocean views; and The Beach House or dreamy Lookout
Villa are ideal for when you're in need of a little extra privacy (the
latter is also ideal for family stays).
But that's not all.
Sand, the restaurant, is white-washed, gastronomic loveliness – its 'caught-today' cuisine is fresh and exciting; its cocktails the best in town; the spa is serene, and the infinity pool is watery perfection.
And for those times when you and your signficant other are feeling particularly romantic, then why not arrange an intimate dinner for two in The Plettenberg's award-winning wine cellar, filled with candlelight, flowers and soft romantic music – an absolute must for any special occasion.
