Overview

It’s hard to imagine when walking through the bustling Main Street of Plettenberg Bay – past the vibrant restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, and bars – that there is a tranquil place just five minutes away overlooking the ocean. The Robberg Beach Lodge is that place, and, set along the world-famous Garden Route, is a great place for couples who want a relaxing stop between safaris.

Guest accommodation consists of 29 luxurious rooms in four adjacent villas: Beachy Head Villa, Robberg House, Cottage Pie, Cordovan Villa. Each comes with its own private balcony and en-suite facilities. The ‘View’ suites in Beachy Head Villa offer the best spots overlooking the beach and Indian Ocean, but are more suited for couples than families. The main lodge has an ‘honesty bar’, an outdoor swimming pool, and braai facilities for guests to relax after a busy and fun-packed day with the children.

As is expected with a beachside resort, activities at Robberg Beach Lodge revolve around ocean-living relaxation. Guests can explore the sea just outside their rooms by boat with Ocean Sailing Charters or Whale Watching expeditions, or explore the coast by following brilliant nearby hiking trails or by playing golf along the Garden Route. The Birds of Eden is the world’s largest free flight aviary and bird sanctuary, and is located nearby for guests of all ages to enjoy. Entertainment in Plettenberg Bay is worth a try, too, with a number of venues hosting live music most nights of the week.

Children under the age of 12 years visit for free and children between the ages of 12 and 17 pay half the adult rate, as long as they are sharing with two adults. Some of the self-catered suites are great for families with children of any age and generally offer more space than the double rooms. There are suites suitable for families with small children, too.

  • Hi Lisa,

    The safari trip was excellent! The stay, the food and the people were all very nice. We were happy to have Ryan and Stanley as our game drive guides they brought us up close to the animals and Ryan gave very good information throughout.

    Would definitely recommend to friends who are interested in safaris :)

    Also, thanks much for your help, particularly keeping the room for my Brother and his wife they’ve enjoyed the safari very much too!

    Best regards,
    Woan Chyi

  • We had a fantastic time and all the arrangements worked perfectly.
    We were very impressed with the quality and service levels of all 4 locations visited and it was truly a holiday of a lifetime.
    Thank you to you and to Lisa for giving us this experience.
    Particular highlights for us – really the whole experience, but of particular impact:
    Breathtaking scenery at Cathedral Peak Hotel
    Rhino Ridge game drives incredible, thanks to guide (we had their head guide, Hala, who’s knowledge, enthusiasm, kindness, interaction, ability to spot wildlife was out of this world)
    Luxury of Rhino Ridge (shower, food, views, service)
    Immersion in nature, torch lit meal on last night and beach trip at Kosi Forest Lodge
    Level of service, quality of food throughout

  • We had a fantastic time. Thank you and it went smoothly in the main except for British Airways!

    The trip had the right degree of luxury and relaxation (for me) and adventure (all of us).

    A few points:
    Driving directions to Umlunghi Lodge were slightly wrong. The driving directions should read at the 4th roundabout take the first exit and turn right over the railway. We loved it there. Anton, Bianca and her son and Harriet were very informative and entertaining. The snake talk and handling, night walks and seeing scorpions and the walk in the bush and "bumping" into a giraffe were really special. The kayak trip to Makuzi pan that the lodge organised was good and Tomaz was very informative and kept a respectful distance from the hippos.3 nights was plenty.

    Rhino River Lodge game reserve was incredibly luxurious and we felt very looked after. The lion siting in camp the day we arrived sent an extra frisson of excitement down our spines. It was easy to forget there were predators that could attack us with all that luxury. The staff and guides (Karl) were knowledgeable and invested in their set up. We saw rhinos with baby, cheetahs with young, porcupine, Genet, wildebeast, Impala, Lion with young, buffalo, a puff adder, ostrich, zebra and giraffes. 4 nights was also plenty.
    They all served great food but I felt Ghost Mountain Inn topped the lot. The variety was amazing. We arrived at 10.30 but could not get into our room until 2 ish. The service was not so personal I guess because it is larger (far more than 50 rooms). We had been a bit spoilt at Rhino River! My daughter and I had some treatments at the Spa and loved it. We also went on a large boat trip on Jonzi and had a closer encounter with a large bull hippo and also a hike up Ghost Mountain with Patrick who was very informative and passionate about his people and his country. Isaac the other guide there took us on the boat trip and pointed out the sugar cane harvest on the way. he was very informative also.

    Lastly, Lalaria Lodge was fabulous and we all piled into the surf of the Indian Ocean. There was hardly anyone on the beach. It was "too cold" according to the landlady. The view from her terrace was of the ocean and whales breaching in the distance. I could have sat there all day. She very kindly provided us with a Scrabble board of her own for us to play. We took a Microlight ride from Ballito over the coastline in the hope of seeing whales and dolphins but no luck. If we had stayed longer we might have gone on a boat trip from Durban. We had a meal at a restaurant called Mozambique which was great fun with vast portions, plenty of carbs and fresh seafood!

    The value of the Rand to the Pound was excellent and therefore we felt that we got excellent value which also played a large part!
