About The Whaling Station B&B and Spa

The Garden Route’s original whaling station lies 2 km east of Plettenberg Bay on the banks of the Keurbooms Lagoon. It has long since transformed into a 4 Star family friendly B&B boasting its own spa.

This tranquil retreat is set on 7 acres of unspoiled indigenous fynbos within the secure and renowned Goose Valley Golf Estate, with its Gary Player designed, 18-hole golf course and driving range. All suites are equipped with Wi-Fi Internet and DStv.

We invite you to indulge in a spa treatment, Jacuzzi or steam bath. Savour never-ending views of the lagoon and ocean, or canoe across the lagoon directly to Plettenberg Bay's most exclusive beach which is accessible by boat only. Enjoy a dinner or barbecue in our thatched lapa on arrangement; there is also a restaurant on the estate.

Beach: The property is close to the lagoon and within 2 km east of the beach.

Spa: We invite you to indulge in a spa treatment, Jacuzzi or steam bath in our spa which is equipped for dual couple treatments.

Golf: This tranquil retreat is set on a Gary Player designed, 18-hole golf course and driving range.

Conference Venues: We specialise in team building events and small conferences.

              Our stay at the Whaling Station was disappointing. We were met by someone who was not trained, did not know about our booking and said the owner "was playing golf" at 7pm. After some time after expressing our dissatisfaction we were given a room. Cheap coffee was provided, no soap in the bathroom, no blinds or window dressing in the bathroom, no hairdryer.

Recommended for quality, service and value though there is no longer a spa.
