Hotel Of The Week: Tamodi Lodge, Plettenberg Bay

Tamodi Lodge is located in Keurboom heights, approximately 10 kilometres outside Plettenberg Bay. On arrival you are met with immediate tranquillity as you head down the driveway lined with eucalyptus trees, pastures and stables, and onward towards the sizeable, but understated, thatched lodge. Indeed the architecture, both interior and exterior, is designed to act as minimalist back drop to the real showstopper: the view.

Rooms open out to palatial views of the Outeniqua Mountains and Keurboom forest with the sweet smell of fynbos and the soothing sounds of the birds heralding every sunrise. They abound in this tranquil paradise, flying to and fro as you indulge in a deliciously, elegant breakfast overlooking the infinity pool and treetops. With private stables, guided hikes into the valley and a secluded bird-viewing deck, this is the perfect retreat from the vibrant Plettenberg atmosphere.

Thatched roofs with gloriously high ceilings, barn doors, wooden decking, stone features, screed floors and the overall ‘natural’ colour palate add to the organic feel that compliments the environment. It’s open, spacious and serene.

A short drive down the gravel road leads to the Keurboom beaches, where you can encounter dolphins playing in the surf from the moment you step into the breakers.
