The Plettenberg Park Hotel Accommodation

The Plettenberg Park Hotel is an all-weather hotel, brilliantly lazy in summer sunshine, with spectacular arching views of the ocean. In winter, the added drama of the Cape of Storms adds to the experience of wild, blustery and enveloping days, saturated around log fires. The interior of the hotel is very contemporary, with a dash of sophistication and mixed with local touches that reflect the fashions of today. Whether in comfort, or in style; all of which suits sophisticated tastes for unique and luxury accommodation. The décor has been designed by Sarah Stevens who has skilfully blended natural materials with neutral tones in a permeation that breeds throughout the hotel. Plettenberg Park Hotel & Spa is also home to a private art collection by Tamsin Relly of Knysna, as well as a photography collection by Clinton Friedman.
