The Tamodi Lodge has a beautiful view of The Crags. The rooms are very spacious with all the amenities. I can only think of two things that would improve the experience at the Tamodi: 1-to be able to have dinner here (who wants to leave this place) 2-help with luggage upon check-in and check-out.

Tamodi Lodge is without a doubt the most beautiful place we have ever stayed. From the premises to the rooms and the swimming pool. Everything was fantastic. Great value for money also. Highly recommended!

We spent one night here while driving the Garden Route during our honeymoon in South Africa. The property is gorgeous and the room we stayed in (the honeymoon suite) was amazing. It was almost as large as our apartment at home! The views were incredible (out over a tree-filled gorge) and the indoor/outdoor space was perfect. The lodge is located... More

One of the most beautiful locations of our trip along the SA coast. Magnificent lounges and rooms, spacious, well designed.A pity though the fireplace was not burning and there was no "soul" in this guesthouse. Breakfast was nice, the weather unfortunately not that good on aour day of arrival so the design swimming pool could not be tested.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite for two nights in November. This place is nothing short of amazing. Even on a rainy day it's absolutely stunning. The suite was excellent, beautifully presented with fantastic views across the valley. Great breakfast. We were so sorry to leave!

Unfortunately we only stayed one night. Getting to the lodge felt like taking a wrong turn as the street seemed to lead nowhere. However, we kept driving and arrived to the lodge at the left side. Its part of a small estate where you will also find horses. We were greeted with a glas of wine and very pleasantly surprised... More

We stayed in many beautiful places on our trip but Tamodi Lodge has to be the most memorable stay. We stayed 2 nights in the separate Honeymoon Suite, which has incredible views over Tsitikamma forest, is beautifully laid out with a lounge area, and fire place which we utilised on both nights as the weather wasn't great. The huge bath... More

Perfect room, kingsize bed, very good body lotion/shampoo/..., nice pool, the view is just heavenly, the staff en owner (Owen) are soon friendly and warm, the breakfast is (also :) ) heaven on earth, ...

We stayed in the honeymoon room and it was by far the most amazing place we have ever stayed in. From the stunning view to the outside shower, no detail was missed. The lodge only has 4 rooms and it's a real labour of love. Owen and his family are lovely and we just wished we had stayed longer. Highly... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tamodi Lodge and Stables (luxury 4 star accommodation in Plettenberg Bay) was created by Lynne and Owen Johnston, their inspiration born out of a love for horses and the beautiful valleys of the Crags. This passion is reflected in the carefully designed main house and stable buildings. You will relax in the peaceful setting while looking out over indigenous forests, valleys and the Outeniqua Mountains. Two beautiful standard rooms are available as well as our luxurious honeymoon suite. The property forms part of a natural conservancy area and is also a working equestrian farm with a riding school. We provide a full breakfast, but suggest lunch and dinner at one of the fine Plett restaurants. Keurbooms beach is just 5 minutes away, where you can enjoy magnificent views over the bay while watching the whales and dolphins playing in the surf. ... more   less
