The charming heritage building – a National Monument which has been immaculately restored and reimagined as an enchanting boutique hotel – comprises 18 stylish suites as well as a sparkling swimming pool with a deck shaded by ancient milkwoods, a tranquil in-house spa and a popular bistro-inspired restaurant.
Although it sits in the heart of bustling Plettenberg Bay, the hotel's thoughtful design means that one is never short on peace and quiet.
Inspired by the region’s vibrant flora and fauna and each paired with a different piece of contemporary South African art, our Pool-Facing Suites are individually designed to create the perfect backdrop to a Garden Route getaway.
Fresh and sophisticated with eye-catching South African art and pops of vivid colour, these luxury suites feature king-sized beds, an open-plan en-suite bathroom with walk-in rain shower and their own sunny gardens.
This oasis of calm, with its peaceful enclosed garden and generously-proportioned suites – each with their own private outdoor spaces – gives guests the option to escape a little (or a lot) whenever the mood strikes.
The hotel is also perfectly positioned for days of fun and exploration, providing easy access to Plett's wide, white-sand beaches, the long, narrow Keurbooms Lagoon, the dense indigenous forests that unfold along the coastline and the raw beauty of the Robberg Nature Reserve.
Immerse yourself in the oasis of elegance that is The Old Rectory, a tranquil hideaway amidst the bustling charm of Plettenberg Bay. With a rich history and vibrant present, your stay promises to be a memorable seaside adventure.
Prepared with passion and great attention to detail, every meal at Restaurant 1777 is a cause for celebration. The menu takes inspiration from the remarkable local produce available on the Garden Route as well as the hotel's heritage as an important South African landmark.
Our tranquil in-house spa offers a range of treatments and therapies in which to indulge during your stay with us. From our Signature Journeys to performance-driven facials, aromatherapy massages and grooming rituals, every moment of your time in the spa is a celebration of self care.
Plettenberg Bay is famous for its mild climate and family-friendly atmosphere as well as the opportunity to see marine mammals like whales, seals and dolphins enjoying the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. With its prime Garden Route location, it is an idyllic spot from which to explore this spectacular part of the world.
