Periwinkle Guest Lodge

Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

The lodge's interior is decorated in a sophisticated nautical theme that's in keeping with the property's seaside surroundings, with a soft colour scheme of relaxing neutrals accented with tranquil blues and pale greens.

The spacious veranda and sparkling infinity pool boast wonderful uninterrupted views of the Robberg Peninsula stretching to the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The property offers a number of open plan communal areas that are filled with natural light, high-end furnishings and plush, inviting sitting areas, creating the perfect setting for relaxation and socialising at the end of a busy day.


Periwinkle describes itself as 'a little piece of paradise', and we have to agree. We suggest exploring the exciting Plettenberg Bay area then retreating to Periwinkle to enjoy the stunning views and warm hospitality.
