The magnificent Plettenberg Hotel is a 19th century mansion originally belonging to the famous Thesen family of Knysna. The hotel was rebuilt in the early 1960's and again in the late 80's, to provide exclusive accommodation for the most discerning of travellers. Built on a dramatic rocky headland that separates the two main swimming beaches, this exclusive hotel surrounds the guests with elegance, comfort and privacy. Accommodation is in luxury en suite bedrooms, all with a private balcony offering views of the landscaped gardens or the ocean.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of two of Plettenberg Bay's superb swimming beaches - Lookout and Beacon Island. It is also only three minutes away from the main street, which boasts a myriad shops and restaurants. Facilities at the hotel include a swimming pool, reflexology spa, bar, lounge and two elegant dining rooms.
