Our Thoughts

Wonderfully located at the end of a small headland, The Plettenberg is a haven of tranquillity just a short walk from the restaurants, bars and attractions of Plettenberg Bay. The pool area overlooking the Ocean is a great place to relax after a long day exploring The Garden Route. Be sure to enjoy dinner in their award-winning Sand Restaurant one evening – it is one of the best on The Garden Route.

From delicious breakfasts to lazy poolside lunches and unforgettable dinners, SeaFood at The Plettenberg offers a sophisticated dining experience not to be missed.  SeaFood at The Plettenberg combines an array of elements to create an unsurpassed dining experience. The sand, beach and sea have been brought into the restaurant in the colours, mood and design.

Frequented by both locals and South African's elite, when they're on vacation, The Sandbar is the place to see and be-seen-at in Plettenberg Bay. The Sandbar showcases a striking blend of design, glass, white leather, white marble, natural oak, clever lighting and photographic panels. This decor combined with the setting allows The Sandbar to exude a glamorous atmosphere, one often associated with a bygone era. During the day The Sandbar is a relaxed space to meet for casual drinks or tea. When night falls, it is the location to enjoy the finest selection of stylish mouth watering cocktails, award-winning South African wines and sublime Champagne.

The spacious rooms and suites are well spaced throughout the property with all of the amenities that you could wish for, including TV/DVD players and fully stocked minibars.
