The Plettenberg
The Garden Route

The Plettenberg – situated on a rocky headland in one of South Africa's most spectacular beach towns – is a perfect retreat. Owned by hotelier Liz McGrath, this 35-room luxurious hotel offers privacy and elegance. No detail is overlooked and each room is filled with lavish touches. We love the serene Beach House with its cool hues and natural materials.

A cornucopia of crustaceans is served at the aptly named SeaFood at The Plettenberg. Feast on the local marine bounty and the choicest seasonal ingredients along with sundowners at the buzzing Sandbar. This is a hotel of choice for South Africa’s chicest holidaymakers and there is a cosmopolitan air, relaxed but social. 

Take in breathtaking vistas of ocean, mountains and blissful stretches of golden beach. Activities are endless, from dolphin and whale sightings to bungee jumping, treetop canopy tours and much more in the surrounding countryside, The Plettenberg is a haven to relax and unwind, recharge and be restored.

I don't know where I'm going but I promise it won't be boring.

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
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
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
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
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!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
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
