Once experienced, never forgotten

The five-star small luxury hotels of the World Property, with its 35 beautifully appointed rooms and two family-style villas, showcases the most breathtaking vistas in Southern Africa, as well as world-class cuisine at the restaurant at The Plettenberg.


Heavenly seaside living. Whether you choose one of our entry-level Double Rooms, spacious Premier Suites or exclusive Villas, you can rest assured that you will experience the most stylish and comfortable accommodation.



Savour the bounty of the ocean. The indoor dining section offers beautiful views of the pool and ocean, while the outdoor terrace is perfect for alfresco dinners, with mesmerising ocean vistas – especially at sunset.

True to its name, the restaurant is renowned for its ocean bounty, drawing inspiration from the rich marine life that can be found in Plettenberg Bay. The Head Chef, Kyle Macaskill, and his kitchen team, prepares innovative, sustainable seafood dishes, together with a wide selection of choices for meat and vegetable lovers. Working closely with local suppliers, ingredients are always seasonal and kept at a superb level of quality.

To reflect a taste of the bay, signature dishes at the restaurant include Twice Baked Souffle and Grilled Sole, while carnivores can tuck into Aged Beef Fillet and Classic Beef Burgers – with a carefully curated wine list completing the culinary experience. Guests may also book ahead to enjoy High Tea at the restaurant.

The SandBar

Cocktail delights in a contemporary setting. Wide selection of local and international spirits, expertly mixed cocktails, award-winning wines, or pre- and post-dinner drinks – whatever tickles your fancy, you will find it at The Sandbar, The Plettenberg’s stylish bar and lounge.

Leading off The Sun Lounge of The Plettenberg, The Sandbar is an exquisite, contemporary cocktail bar and lounge frequented by local patrons, as well as South Africans who choose to holiday in Plettenberg Bay.

The glass, white leather, marble and natural oak finishes blend to form a striking design, highlighted by clever lighting. The large photographic panels on the walls offer an outdoor perspective of the Plettenberg Bay region.

Throughout the day, The Sandbar is the perfect meeting spot for drinks and tea, and in the evenings, it is ideal for enjoying award-winning South African wines, a variety of champagnes and an array of carefully crafted signature cocktails.
