Plettenberg is a must on the Garden Route and Periwinkle is a great place to stay. Staff are very attentive and the views of the bay are magical. Luxury rooms and bathrooms made this a great relaxing stay- especially after the bungee jumping.

We had the pleasure of staying at Periwinkle. Matt was absolutely wonderful. He was very helpful and even made reservations to the Fat Fish twice during our stay. By the way if you are in Plettenberg you must go there for dinner as they have fabulous food. We stayed in room 2 which is the best room of the place....
