A hidden gem in the heart of Plett with sweeping views of the lagoon and Lookout Beach! Very peaceful retreat with sparkling, clean pool and spotless house. My family and I enjoyed a great holiday with Gisela, our proud hostess, who serves us delicious breakfasts on the patio daily. A short walk to Lookout Beach and the lagoon, away from... More

We enjoyed our stay in Tanah Merah in april 2014. From the house you have a magnificent view over the bay. The car was parked safely next to the house within the secured surface. The rooms and lounge are very beautiful and you have everything you wish and need. Our host, mrs von Wedel, was always ready to inform us,... More

Arriving at TM after a horrendous flight, we were able to relax immediately. Our ground floor accommodation was wonderful - spacious and immaculate, and with immediate access to the excellent pool. Vivi and Gisela were everything good hosts should be - welcoming, helpful (especially re visits, eating out etc), charming etc etc. The TM was delightful and the garden and... More

Vivi took us on an orientation trip of the area so we were able to visit the various locations at our leisure later. He also recommended restaurants and booked reservations for us. We had the whole of... More

After a fantastic stay in 2006 we decided to come back in 2007. And again we enjoyed the beautiful environment from Tanah Merah. The two larger rooms with sea view are spacious and tastefully decorated. Perfect with the en-suite bathrooms, a small fridge and large windows with direct access to the balcony and pool-area. The morning starts with a delicious... More

This was the fourth year that we stayed with Gisela and Vivi. They are wonderful hosts and Tanah Merah is a beautiful house overlooking the Lagoon at Plet. Vivi's garden will make your mouth water and the poolside an oasis on a hot day. We have travelled extensively and rarely had such an enjoyable holiday, even at top class hotels.... More

We stayed at Tanah Merah at the end of January having selected it based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. We can only say that the experience was even more enjoyable than we had hoped with our hosts making us feel most welcome in their home and going out of their way to be hospitable without intruding on our privacy.

A great place to stay: allow at least 4 nights. It is a large modern upmarket house in a residential road of similar properties about 1 mile from centre of Plett. We stayed in the Bankok room which was, large, en-suite, has a sitting area and was very tastefully decorated. Because the house is high on a hill there are... More
