Kurland Hotel
The Garden Route

Set on a 700 hectare estate, the family-owned Kurland Hotel is perched on balmy Plettenberg Bay with its Mediterranean climate. The boutique property offers 12 suites plus a grand villa for exclusive use adjoining a polo ground. Four-poster beds, antiques and glorious chintzes evoke a more gracious age while the courtyard suites have water features and private plunge pools. Vases of fresh roses, roaring fires and charming staff create an enveloping ambience that we loved. The restaurant offers sensational cuisine and dinners can be arranged al fresco all over the estate.

Kurland Hotel sits on The Garden Route, regarded as the gateway to the eastern and western cape, and has wealth of local activities to offer. Visit the nearby Bramon Wine Estate as well as the world’s first free-roaming primate sanctuary. Horse lovers can ride along the surf on the beach or learn polo, ‘the sport of kings’.

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
