Sitting on the deck of the bay

Sitting right on the water’s edge at Hobie Beach – one of the best-rated locations in Plett – The Bungalow, Plettenberg Bay is a fusion of sun, sea and sand, with lashings of luxury and touches of seaside chic … the perfect spot for beachside living. And it’s where we want to be the minute the travel ban lifts.

This privately owned bed and breakfast may be five star, but it’s not stuffy. In fact, it’s the perfect spot to kick off your flip-flops at the door, collapse on a sofa, and sip  something cool while letting the kids have fun.

There’s sophisticated, but laid-back accommodation – cool and breezy, sea-facing, luxuriously furnished rooms. There’s a fabulous family suite, but also a cleverly designed ‘Pod’ room, where the kids sleep in bunk-like compartments.

There’s a lovely, casual restaurant, where the kitchen’s open all day … dishing up holiday fare nachos, sushi and signature pizzas.

When the weather’s warm, you can relax in the sun on the pool terrace, finding shade under the beautiful indigenous milkwood trees, or head on up to the rooftop deck which overlooks the entire bay. For cooler evenings, you can gather up the family and sit round a cosy fire in the private tranquil boma area, with comfy beanbags and oversized scatter cushions.

If you can bear to tear yourself away, there’s a beach just a pebble’s throw away and loads of other attractions … think hiking through the Robberg Nature Reserve, taking a cruise on the Keurbooms River, swimming, surfing, whale, dolphin and seal watching, boating, fishing and kayaking – The Bungalow supplies kayaks, surf and body boards to guests. Good grief, there’s more … try cycling and golfing, or a spot of birdwatching.

After the stressful months we’ve all had this year, we think falling asleep to the soothing sounds of the sea are just what we need … see you there!

Rates are from R2400 for two sharing a room.
