The Plettenberg is situated on a rocky headland overlooking the mountains and coastline of Plettenberg Bay. It is an easy walk or drive to the main shopping and eating areas.

The property comprises two buildings. In the original building are the reception area, the sand bar and restaurant, the Collection Boutique, a guest lounge and a lovely infinity swimming pool. Skylights in the hotel corridors bring in natural light giving the property a spacious feel. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner offering views of Formosa Bay. The décor is stylish and contemporary; the mood is relaxed. The sand bar also has a laid back ambiance yet is glamorous and sophisticated. Adjacent to the main building, the Carchele Beauty Spa offers a range of massage treatments and the sauna is complimentary to all hotel guests.
There are a number of different room types in the original building - all have been decorated in a subtle nautical theme of pale yellows and blues. In the blue wing are the remaining rooms and suites and another wonderful infinity pool. The premier suites are superb as they have views of the ocean and a separate lounge area. Most rooms have French windows leading on to balconies.
