Relais & Chateaux


The Plettenberg has one of the best vantage points in South Africa, but not all of the rooms in the hotel make the most of this. You will be disappointed with the Standard Rooms that have views of the parking lot. We highly recommend asking for a Luxury Double Room with Lookout Beach view. The Blue Wing is comprised of only suites and has beautiful views of Beacon Isle Beach, but it is situated across the road from the main hotel: Lookout Villa The Beach House - 2 bedrooms, butler service 7 Premier Suites - most have French Doors on to balconies. 5 Suites - Sea views. Separate lounge and bedroom. 9 Luxury Double Rooms (7 with sea views, we recommend highly) 8 Standard Double Rooms (not recommended)


On-site: 2 Swimming Pools; "Carchele Spa" on property. Nearby: Close proximity to 4 beaches, Mountain biking, Hiking, Horseback riding, Diving, Fishing, Sailing, Safaris, Water-Skiing, Canoeing-Kayaking-Rafting; Two, 18-hole golf course nearby.
