Hunter's Country House

Hunter's Country House, Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

Hunter's has all the refined exclusivity of an English country house, but set amidst beautiful African flowers and trees in the heart of the Garden Route. The thatched main lodge is decorated with antiques, comfortable furniture and open fireplaces, and this theme is continued in the rooms. The ensuite rooms are situated throughout the pretty grounds and are fully equipped with television, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities and air-conditioning. Each room has its own private terrace area leading into the wonderful gardens, which are full of bright colours and peaceful corners.

Hunter's has three excellent restaurants: 'Crystal' and ‘Sage’ for fine-dining and 'Summerhouse' for more relaxed tapas-style fare.  Guests can also walk to the restaurant Zinzi which is located on the estate.  Hunter’s also has a large swimming pool and spa offering various treatments. Hunter's welcomes families and has a children’s play area complete with climbing frame, sandpit and paddling pool as well as the 'Cub House', which has toys, games, books and videos and is fully supervised by trained staff.

      Sailing & Sea Kayaking

      Plettenberg Bay

      There are a few outfits that offer sailing trips into Plettenberg Bay as well as sea kayaking. Apart from spectacular off-shore coastal scenery, it is very likely that at some stage, a close encounter with the marine animals will occur so you can get very close to them.
