A wonderful, very comfortable lodge in a scenic location where you can get away from it all and still be close to whichever Garden Route destinations interest you. Proximity to the beach is excellent. Breakfast served by the fireplace in winter was a special treat. The lodge itself is thoughtfully designed. Great getaway.

Wish i had more time, will definitely be back again. The setting was amazing, the room was fabulous, and the staff were great. I could have sat there the whole day, enjoying a good book, and looking out onto the mountains in the distance. Absolute bliss

Tamodi Lodge has the feeling of a home possibly because it was designed to be a home then subsequently turned into a lodge. There has been no expense sparred in the construction of this one-of-a-kind structure. It is located in the hills 10 km east of Plettenberg Bay. The staff is great. The breakfast was perfect. Owen is an informative... More

My new husband and I came to Tamodi on the last stretch of our honeymoon. The setting is so beautiful. We stayed in the detached suite which is very private. All of the windows open up to expose the forest view. It was very peaceful. The outdoor shower was amazing. We didn't even use the indoor one. The deck is... More

Tamodi is something special. The whole property is stunning, but perfect hospitality and careful attention to all the details takes it to the next level. We stayed just one night in the honeymoon suite attached to the main building as a treat for my 30th birthday. The suite is gorgeous and larger than it appears in the photos. The breakfast... More

This was one of our favorite hotel of our trip. There are very few rooms so it definitely feels intimate. we stayed two nights in a honeymoon suite. The room was enormous and as luxurious as it can get! We had a hug deck terrace. The staff were great and the owner even took us for a lovely hike on... More

Tamodi Lodge is one of those places that you hope the website and pictures aren't telling the whole story. And they're not. It's far nicer, the main lodge building is stunning and the view are to die for. And with a sneaky shortcut to Enricos you could quite happily spend a week chilling and exploring the wonderful coastline and local... More

Been meaning to write this review for over a year (we visited in March 15). All the places we stayed in SA were good, but Tamodi Lodge was the best. Great welcome from Owen & friendly staff. Wonderful, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfasts and the views are just stunning. And that wine cellar.... We are planning to return next year -... More

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
