Living the grand life in Plettenberg Bay

Who would have though that you would find a retro-romantic hideaway in the middle of the sunburnt playground of Plettenberg Bay? The Grand Hotel and Rooms situated on the Main Street of Plettenberg Bay feels as though its been transported from a historic Mediterranean village.

With its huge arched doorways, faded velvet drapes, candelabra and antique furniture, it recreates a bygone era. The restaurant is vintage complete with candles, a piano and polo sticks. The well-presented menu has a broad offering from seafood to pizza, curries and burgers. The deck with its lagoon and coastline views invites you to laze and linger.

However, the bedrooms are the highlight of this seven-roomed boutique hotel. Enormous high beds in white linen, theatrical mirrors and a chaise lounge in the dressing room, freestanding baths and private courtyards are a few of the features.  Each room is unique and the honeymoon suite has its own pool and lounge.  Fun and indulgent, the Grand is a wine, chocolates and candles choice for a romantic night away.
