About Plett River Lodge

Plett River Lodge is a stunning guest house situated on the banks of the Bitou River. It is a mere 5 km from Plettenberg Bay and it is one of the top holiday destinations on the beautiful Garden Route. Set within private tree-lined gardens with unobstructed river frontage, Plett River Lodge offers luxury accommodation for discerning guests who want a relaxed holiday.

Plett River Lodge offers comfortable accommodation in 7 spacious en-suite rooms. We have four Double Rooms, one Twin Room and two Family Rooms. Beautifully yet simply decorated in a rustic, contemporary style with cement floors, woven-coir rugs, neutral colours and warm fabrics; each room offers a luxury en-suite bathroom with a bath, shower and double vanities. Rooms are airy and light with large windows showing panoramic vistas of the Bitou River or the estate gardens. Each room has a dressing table, television and panel heater. Five of the rooms open through double doors onto the viewing deck, which overlooks the Bitou River. Each of these rooms has a private section of covered deck, as well as a comfortable seating area under a reed roof. The Family Rooms offer either twin beds or a sleeper couch for two children under 12. Cots are available on request.

Witness an exquisite morning sunrise over the Bitou River and listen to the sound of a fish eagle calling in the distance. Keep your binoculars close by to identify the prolific bird life on the vast deck, which extends over the river. At sunset, unwind with a glass of wine on the deck or in the comfortable lounge, where guests are encouraged to make themselves at home. We welcome children and have provided swings and a jungle gym for them in the garden. Our friendly, experienced staff will babysit for you, should you wish to enjoy an evening out on your own.

Guests staying at the River Lodge are welcome to join on a Game Drive or Horse Safari at the Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve at a 20% discount.

What a pleasure it was to stay at plett riverlodge. The staff who all put a hand in helping us understand the place because it was our first outing. They even help us with organising the special dinner we had that was not on the menu. Three word we can express our self is: exciting, reviving and rejuvenating. The lovers nest(honeymoon suite) was paradise,  a getter way place to relax. This was one special place that will stay in our hearts for long time, We r so fortunate to have found a place like this. God bless the staff n manager

What a charming stay we had at Plett River Lodge.  Shortly after we arrived to a magnificent red sunset over the river, the electricity was cut in Plett.  We moved onto the deck and watched the stars whilst listening to splashes in the river, not 5m from us.  I've seldom felt closer to Africa. The staff are friendly, the beds are comfortable and breakfast absolutely delicious. We will be back for longer.
