We weren't expecting to be out on a dirt road, but it turned out to be convenient to getting into Plett, and the owners were very helpful with great restaurant recommendation (Enrico's). Lovely place.

Fiona and Ray made our stay at this beautiful paradise extremely amazing. They were very helpful and friendly especially as we were born in the same place :) Great location with lots to do in the area and at the guest house such as quad biking ! Fiona cooks some of the best food I've tasted and they can't do... More

We have just spent 4 wonderful days at Bella Manga. This tranquil retreat offered comfortable and well maintained accommodation. Fiona's kitchen exceeded all expectations with delicious full English breakfasts and the opportunity of home cooked evening meals on request, which we took full advantage of. The warm welcome we received from Ray and Fiona extended to the two beautiful friendly... More

Lovely welcome after long drive. Felt very much at home. Breakfasts were fab. The accommodation was varied and comprehensive and can cater for all requirements from secluded self catering cottages to rondavels and b&b. Any requests or observations were immediately attended to. We are very happy to recommend Bella Manga and hope to return. Ray & Fiona should be proud... More

We had a nice African round house, loads of good tips on things to do and enjoyed the tranquility of the place. Owners were very friendly, good place to relax. Pool and garden were also nice to spend a late afternoon before dinner. We recommend the place.

We all have those friends who make the best hosts: they welcome you into their inviting homes, give you tips on how to experience the best their town has to offer, and know how to prepare their guests a delicious meal with gusto. This is the Bella Manga experience-magnified of course, by the beautiful countryhouse and surroundings Ray and Fiona... More

We discovered this little piece of Paradise last year and made sure it featured top of our list again this year. Ray and Fiona are great hosts at Bella Manga with Rooms, Pool and gardens beautifully appointed and maintained. Our 4 days there were quiet and idyllic.... Exactly what we needed!

We stayed in a forest lodge with beautiful forest surroundings. The lodge is adequately but not luxuriously furnished and a little overpriced. Some of the DIY could have been carried out better by Mr Bean (how the bathroom towel rail stayed attached to the door is a mystery)!! The gardens and pool are well tended with an evening visit from... More

beautiful place to stay, nice things to do, nice hosts, but very businesslike (bpo breakfast). I recommend to stay in the rondavel; we recommend a game drive in the plettenberg game reserve next corner. We stayed with our little daughter.

This is our fourth visit to Bellamanga, and it improves every time, Marie, my wife and I have managed to extend our visit to two months this time. It is wonderful to see Ray and Fiona again, who are outstanding hosts, along with their beautiful herd of cattle. I was surprised to read the previous review, where they lost some... More
