Whalesong Hotel & Spa
1 Marine Drive (Plettenberg Bay) 6600

Whalesong Hotel & Spa
Nestled on a hill above Plettenberg Bay, along the world-famous Garden Route, this deluxe hotel boasts breathtaking views of the coastline and the ocean beyond.

Quintessentially African, Whalesong Hotel & Hydro takes its inspiration from the bush. Stay in one of the 24 thatched rooms, decorated with ethnic artwork and elegant furnishings. The hotel is only a short distance from the town centre and pristine beaches, making it the ideal holiday destination.

Relax in a tranquil setting while being pampered by qualified hairstylists. The spa offers rejuvenating beauty treatments, including hot stone therapies and aromatherapy massages. After a long day, you can go for a swim in the outdoor pool or marvel at the African night sky from the comfort of your private deck.

What people say

Excellent service, beautiful rooms, great view. Friendly staff and pleasant atmosphere. Poor service. I repeatedly requested maintenance no avail. It was cold, the bed had bugs we were bitten all night, bathroom dark and dingy and locationn was next to a township so unsafe to leave at night and only 1 resturant on site which was ok.
