“Ein Traum von einer Lodge mit perfekten Gastgebern!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Die Tamodi Lodge ist einfach ein Traum. Die Lage an einem Berghang mit einem überwältigenden Ausblick ist nicht toppen. Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Das ganze Haus ist äußerst geschmackvoll eingerichtet und unser Zimmer war wunderschön und perfekt ausgestattet. Unser Gastgeber Owen und seine Frau Lynn haben sich mit ausgesuchter Freundlichkeit um uns gekümmert, uns Tipps gegeben, Reservierungen vorgenommen, einfach jeden Wunsch von den Lippen abgelesen. Das Frühstück auf der wunderschönen Terrasse vor dem angefeuerten Kamin mit Blick auf Garten und Pool war perfekt! Die Lage der Tamodi Lodge ist optimal um mit dem Auto Ausflüge nach Plettenberg, Tsitsikama Nationalpark oder den Tierattraktionen Birds of Eden, Monkeyland oder Elephant Sanctuary zu unternehmen. Aufgrund der etwas abgeschiedenen Lage ist ein Auto ein Muss, das Schöne an der abgeschiedenen Lage wiederum ist die völlige Ruhe, die man in der Tamodi Lodge genießt! Für Pferdefreunde ist es ein Paradies, da Lynn aktiv Sprungpferde trainiert. Die Pferde werden in Pferdekoppeln auf dem Gelände der Lodge gehalten, die Gäste sind herzlich eingeladen das sehr schöne Anwesen zu erkunden. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!

Room Tip: Die "Honeymoon suite" ist ein Traum!

We stayed at some lovely places on the Garden Route, but this was The Best! Stunning lodge with warm and friendly hosts. All rooms decorated with original artwork and beautifully furnished. Breakfast on the verandah overlooking the vast wooded valley and mountains beyond was superb. Can't think of anywhere I'd rather stay.

What can one say? Beautiful property, attractively furnished, lovely decor, great rooms, friendly and attentive hosts. Had 3 of the most wonderful nights of our latest stay in South Africa there, and will definitely - God willing - return for even more of the same. Terrific electric storm in the distance as well! Great viewing.

Room Tip: Only 3 suites, one the Honeymoon suite. All terrific, you cannot go wrong choosing any! Ask to see t...

This was our first trip to South Africa, and first to Plettenberg Bay. What a treat to arrive at the simply gorgeous Tamodi Lodge. Arriving on a rainy afternoon, we immediately immersed ourselves into the sumptuous granite bath (that has a 180-degree view of the river valley beyond.) The next day the sun shone brightly, making the view from the spacious deck even more spectacular. Mist drifted along the ridge, illuminated the the cresting sun. Almost too picturesque to be real. After a dip into the infinity pool, and a scrumptious breakfast, we were off to the many wonderful beaches that were minutes away. The lodge itself is decorated impeccably and appointed with all the amenities one would expect from a luxury inn. The warm and gracious proprietor, Owen, knows everything there is to know about the area, and is always on hand to make recommendations. What an extraordinary place that is beauty defined. We couldn't recommend it more highly.

Plettenberg Bay can be overwhelming and overcrowded, especially in school or other holiday seasons. Tamodi Lodge is an absolute oasis from the madness- close enough to town for restaurants/ beach but then relaxing with stunning views, decor and amenities to die for (and two of us are designers..), friendliest service with expert and personal attention-would never stay anywhere else in the Plett area..Highest highest rating!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tamodi Lodge and Stables (luxury 4 star accommodation in Plettenberg Bay) was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of a love for horses and the beautiful valleys of the Crags. This passion is reflected in the carefully designed main house and stable buildings. You will relax in the peaceful setting while looking out over indigenous forests, valleys and the Outeniqua Mountains. Two beautiful standard rooms are available as well as our luxurious honeymoon suite. The property forms part of a natural conservancy area and is also a working equestrian farm with a riding school. We provide a full breakfast, but suggest lunch and dinner at one of the fine Plett restaurants. Keurbooms beach is just 5 minutes away, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the bay while watching the whales and dolphins playing in the surf. ... more   less
