The best honeymoon spot ever! The host Owen has taken every detail while designing this magnificent place, with very little to no room for critic. The service by Owen, and his staff is just fabulous. We did not want to leave Tamodi!

Amazing 2 night getaway from the kids and hustle and bustle of life. Breathtaking view from patio and room. Only wish there were more food options for the evening so you don't have to leave this beautiful spot, that said we had two of the most delicious dinners in plett and keurbooms though only a couple of mins away!

We stayed 2 nights in the separate honeymoon suite at Tamodi Lodge, and loved every minute of it. It's clear that a huge amount of money has been spent on this property to make it unique, and it blends beautifully into the wooded environment. There are only a few rooms, which means it's a very relaxing experience in a secluded...

Tamodi Lodge is a unique spot without compare. The four rooms offer a very private atmosphere and the interior is excellent.. The host Owen received us with a very warm welcome and we felt immediately at home. The food was great and Owen has an excellent wine cellar. We would be very happy to come back any time.

We stayed at the Tamodi lodge in December 2016. The honeymoon sweet was great in terms of location, view and silence. The only topic which could be improved was the room service quality, came late, towels on the floor were not exchanged. Nevertheless we recommend Tamodi and want to come back again.

Dear Markus, It was a pleasure having your family here and do hope you enjoyed yourselves. The late service of your room is probably my fault as I have asked the ladies not to disturb the guests until they go out but perhaps we need to check with you first.All towels on the floor should have been replaced,my appologies. Kindest...

What can we say that has not already been said? Wonderful, we just keep being drawn back here year after year by the sheer pleasure of the place, the Staff, the setting! For a change we stayed in the newly built separate "Honeymoon" Suite, remote from the main Lodge. Superb, though as rather short of stature people we could have...

Photos don't do this place justice. The rooms and communal areas are beautifully designed. Rooms immaculately clean and delicious glass of their next door neighbour's wine on arrival. Breakfast was also delicious and beautifully presented. The nature hike was really well researched and informative. Owen is a great host and we were sorry to leave. It's really popular and always...

Wonderful lodge with the atmosphere of a game lodge. Beautiful views, big rooms, breakfast outside on the deck. Italian restaurant Enrico on the beach close by. Not a cheap accomodation, but worth the money. Only 4 rooms, next year 7. Treat yourself on one of the 2 honeymoonsuites! Paul & Monica ( the Netherlands).

We were welcomed to the lodge with friendly staff and a beautiful view. The staff gives you a lot of privacy and services your room when you exit the room even for the shortest time. You never even know they are there except that your room is good as new again. The only down side was that the the staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tamodi Lodge and Stables (luxury 4 star accommodation in Plettenberg Bay) was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of a love for horses and the beautiful valleys of the Crags. This passion is reflected in the carefully designed main house and stable buildings. You will relax in the peaceful setting while looking out over indigenous forests, valleys and the Outeniqua Mountains. Two beautiful standard rooms are available as well as our luxurious honeymoon suite. The property forms part of a natural conservancy area and is also a working equestrian farm with a riding school. We provide a full breakfast, but suggest lunch and dinner at one of the fine Plett restaurants. Keurbooms beach is just 5 minutes away, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the bay while watching the whales and dolphins playing in the surf. ... more   less
