The gracious art of living reaches new heights at ‘The Plettenberg’: a Relais & Chateaux luxury hotel in Plettenberg Bay – one of South Africa’s most exciting, dream destinations. Nestling on the stunning coastline of the Western Cape’s Garden Route – between the lush, green of the sub-tropical Tsitsikamma forests and the sparkling waters of beautiful Formosa Bay – an elegant, long white mansion stands waiting to offer an unforgettable stay, fine-dining or the afternoon tea experience.
If you have a penchant for taking tea the elegant way, there is nothing better than at The Bay. Relax in one of the attractive lounges or poolside on the al-fresco terrace and enjoy an atmosphere of soothing sophisticatio; make your choice from a superior selection of the finest teas; and enjoy impeccable service while indulging in delicious tea-time treats. Personal favourites include: classic smoked salmon and crispy bacon sandwiches, followed by rich chocolate gateau, mouth-watering carrot cake or homemade muffins topped with organic preserves. All this – and a ‘table with a view’, too. Not to be missed.Only problem is tht after your feast - you will have no space for dinner and probably no appetite for rambling on the magnificent beaches.
