The Plettenberg

image

I was invited to one of the The Collection by Liz McGrath  on the Garden Route called The Plettenberg  Not being a huge fan of hotels as the natural Traveller in me prefers a back pack and a cabin in the woods,  or something like that.

At the onset its beautiful,  the decor is exquisite, the clean lines with  a touch of antique and rustic,  shaded in blues and greens that gives you that fresh crisp feel of a summers breeze at the ocean.

The location is just perfect and over looks the Indian Ocean and the Plettenberg Bay Coastal landscape. 

But what made the experience so different was a few little details –

The people,  I call it the “sacred attention”  factor.  The people are warm and friendly, from the receptionist,  to the General manager, to the cleaning lady that I chatted too. They smile and laugh and  it felt like home, a safe and cared for feeling.

The location,  originally an old back packers and house that was converted in to a Boutique hotel.  A very smart move!  The view from here must be the best I have every seen in Plettenberg Bay.  It’s so well integrated into the coastline and offers more than a sea view,  it’s more like an Ocean experience.

The food,  my favourite subject and pass time.  I love the blend of smells and flavours,  to me food is a form of art and wow,  do they understand this concept,  every item served was just perfect. To round off the aromas we each had a glass of bubbly in hand, what more can I say.

The Plettenberg is a unique blend of luxury,  hospitality and exquisite food with one of the best ocean views I have ever seen, it is definitely the perfect getaway for anyone international or national.
