The Beacon Island Resort is in the vibrant holiday town of Plettenberg Bay, right in the middle of South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route. Set on a rocky promontory at the end of a small peninsula, this iconic Hotel has become an internationally renowned landmark.
Its location is both unique and spectacular. Scenic cliffs drop into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and you feel like you’re on an island surrounded by breathtaking views of forests, beaches and mountains. Keep a languid eye out for passing pods of dolphins’ while lazing in the sun or whales from the comfort of your own room. If you prefer your whale watching with a tall frosted glass of your favourite drop in hand, the Sea Lounge and Playa Bar is the favoured place to be during whale season, or any other day. Imagine sipping a cocktail suspended over the Indian Ocean, with whales and dolphins breaching less than 30 meters away!
You’ll find your room spotless, modern and distinctly relaxing, in keeping with global trends. The Resort is renowned for its top-notch service and excellent cuisine. ‘Plett’, as the locals call it, is a longstanding favourite among holidaymakers and seekers of real adventure will be spoiled for choice by the spectacular array of activities on offer. Hike Robberg, where the views will make your jaw drop. Pop down the road to Knysna for oysters that have just been plucked off the rocks and some eclectic local shopping.
Whatever happens, the Beacon Island Resort will give you a taste of holiday heaven.
