About the Accommodation

Kwendalo means “of nature” in local isiXhosa and our country estate is situated on 16 pristine hectares. Our location distils the belief that our environment and our place within it contributes significantly towards wellness and we invite you to refresh yourself in our gardens and natural surroundings.

In a modern world, we find ourselves in increasingly poor physical and mental health, where we are harried and buffeted by the demands of life – feeling out of balance and unwell. We have stopped growing and started simply surviving. Kwendalo’s holistic approach to wellness encourages self-knowledge, harmony and growth. This is a place where you can restore your balance and learn to start growing again.

Set with sweeping views across the grounds of Kwendalo, the Manor House consists of six spacious and gently renovated suites, each named after a different local bird: Guineafowl, Coucal, Kingfisher, Sugarbird, Wagtail, and Egyptian Geese. We invite you to be at ease at Kwendalo, envelope yourself in comfort and calm, and find serenity and peace while you stay with us. You are encouraged to embrace mornings of contemplation in nature, afternoons of gentle exercise or treatments, and evenings around the fireplace. We hope that you will stay awhile and appreciate all that Kwendalo has to offer. Please note that accommodation is available to all visitors to Plettenberg Bay; our treatments are available to our guests but are not a prerequisite of booking.

We have recently erected a bird hide on our property in partnership with BirdLife Plettenberg Bay. The hide provides stunning views over our wetland. To find out more about our hide and our general approach to avitourism, read this blog post.
