The Plettenberg

Lean back on the edge of the pool and sigh. You’ll never have experienced such an astounding sea vista, and you could well doubt the ability of your camera to faithfully record its majesty.

But The Plettenburg is like that. Continually taking your breath away with its fabulous setting high on the rocky escarpment above Plettenburg Bay. With its terraces overlooking the whales and dolphins gambolling in the Indian Ocean below. With its sumptuousness. With its absolutely first class cuisine and its award winning cellar. With its pampering but discreet service.
