Long before Jan van Riebeeck landed at the Cape, Portuguese explorers, who had stumbled upon Plettenberg Bay, called it ‘Bahia Formosa’ or the ‘Beautiful Bay’. Many people will agree with me, they were not too far off the mark.
Set high above the town and offering unrivalled 360? views of the Keurbooms Lagoon, Lookout Beach and the Tsitsikamma Mountains as they stretch eastwards, la Vista Lodge is your best choice while staying in the town – you cannot enjoy everything the town has on offer in one afternoon.
Accommodation is offered in seven uniquely decorated and spacious suites – all with unmatched ocean or lagoon views and amenities such as free Wi-Fi, large en-suite bathrooms, DSTV, hot beverage facilities, mini-bars and either a king-size or twin beds.
What’s more, the lodge offers three different price options to suit any budget. Each suite has a path that leads you directly to a pool, where you can enjoy a nice dip on those hot days.
The suites come in three different price levels; thus, la Vista Lodge has tried to cater for every holiday budget. In addition, General Manager, Renata Kenig and her team, are known to go the extra mile to make sure your stay is unforgettable.
Since Plett, as it is called by the locals, is a honeymooners’ paradise, couples will be happy to know that la Vista Lodge has a luxurious Honeymoon Suite with 270? views of the town and its surrounds.
Dining at la Vista Lodge is an experience.
Breakfast is usually served on the Ukubuka Dining Deck, provided the weather is clear. You can enjoy a filling meal that will leave you feeling energised and ready to start your day.
Delectable three-course dinners are available at the lodge upon request – there are still plenty of fine restaurants in the town. la Vista takes into account any dietary requirements and their kitchen serves amazing meals, which can include perfectly-grilled Smoked Salmon, Beef Fillet or fresh fish of the day, bought from the local fishermen.
la Vista Lodge has a long-standing partnership with the Forest Nature Spa, so you can relax in your suite as one of their well-trained masseuses works the knots out of your body. Pre-bookings advised.
Once you have settled in, ask their friendly staff for recommendations on what to do in Plett because there are practically too many activities to list!
