The Plettenberg Garden Route, South Africa
Open spaces and the symmetry of both natural and man made structures play many roles at Plettenberg Park, not only in terms of the panoramic views across the ocean and savannah behind, but also within the architecture of the hotel itself.
The Plettenberg Bay hotel, Plettenberg Park, is an all-weather hotel, brilliant and lazy in summer sunshine, with spectacular arching views of the ocean, whilst in winter experience the wild, blustery and enveloping days saturated with log fires and wraps.
The interior of the hotel is somewhat contemporary, with a dash of sophistication and mixed with local ingredients reflecting the trends of today, be it comfort, restraint or sophistication; all of which suits the most discerning tastes for unique Plettenberg Bay luxury accommodation. The décor hand picked by interior designer Sarah Stevens consists of natural materials and neutral tones that permeate the entire hotel. Plettenberg Park boasts a private art collection by Tamsin Relly from Knysna as well as a photography collection by Clinton Friedman.
The original wing consists of five bedrooms, (One Large twin Sea Facing, one small twin sea facing, one small double pool facing and two large twin lake facing) while the new wing consists of three large double sea facing and two large twin sea facing rooms. A total of ten rooms are on offer. Unrivalled views of the Cape’s beautiful coastline are a dominant presence.
