The Plettenberg

‘A spring in your step’

The Plettenberg is one of Relais & Chateaux’s most prestigious properties, managing to combine a quite wonderful position where sea, mountain and sand all feature prominently – with a heart warming tailored hotel experience. Sightings of dolphins and whales are common from the hotel terraces and trips to the beach are a given – but this is a hotel with so much more than that. The heart and soul lies in The Plettenberg’s outstanding service and some fine cuisine helps them achieve some truly dizzying heights. This five star hotel delivers on many levels and comes strongly recommended.
