This is the 5 star version of big name hotels in a boutique setting!! Aquavit is stunning!! (Think The Peninsula, Mandarin Oriental, St. Regis, but in a boutique hotel size). The property is magnificent perched on a hill with views of the entire bay. The room was incredibly spacious! Closets galore! I love it when rooms have a ton a...

We stayed here for five nights in Room #2 overlooking the pool deck. Everything about this B&B is first class all the way; rooms, linens, toiletries, breakfast service etc. The view from all the rooms overlooking the Bay is spectacular as it is at breakfast on the upper deck. Ole and Linda, our hosts, are American and had this B&B...

We love clean, modern, beautifully furnished, guest houses with attentive hosts and good service. Aquavit fills all our needs and we keep coming back each year for more. The place is uber-smart and full of attractive local art. Breakfasts on the terrace, overlooking Plett Bay, with a view for miles (OK Kilometres!) are special and Linda and Ole are very...

My wife and I stayed at Aquavit for 4 nights in room No.1 during our holiday to South Africa and the Garden Route during March 2017. From getting there we were made to feel very special, Linda and Ole are wonderful hosts. The property is magnificent, a real 'to die for' house, with magnificent attention to detail in all the...

The service started before we were in the country. Our plans meant that we would be there by 7.00pm. On contacting Linda, she advised us that it was no problem and had booked us a table at a near by Restaurant (Fat Fish). Excellent restaurant. On arrival it was a glass of wine and a quick tour of the guest...

Our family of 7 had a wonderful experience with Linda and Ole. We occupied the three downstairs luxury, beautifully appointed bedrooms with our own lounge. Each room opened up on to the pool area where we could just relax and look at the amazing view. Ole and Linda and all of their wonderful staff could not have treated us any...

We truly enjoyed our first stay with Linda and Ole at Aquavit. Our room was large and comfortable, and opened on to the pool deck, with its wonderful view of Plett Bay.

What a fantastic place, with amazing views of Plett Bay. We arrived around 4pm to be greeted by the owners. We were shown to our room, and we were suitably impressed. The owners had even reserved us a table at a fab fish restaurant, as it was a Saturday evening and good restaurants get booked up quickly. We were NOT...
