“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

The location of this lodge is superb, great views and close national parks. Owen and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean, breakfast is great, both in quality and quantity. If we come back to South Africa, we would definitely return.

Stayed here for one night in February and loved every moment! We had the honeymoon suite which was stunning. The breakfast delicious and the welcome very warm. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we've booked and paid a deposit for next year- 3 nights next time!

This accommodation is so unusual and so perfect in every way. You really feel your are on your own huge luxury home with invisible people anticipating your every need. Enricos restaurant at the bottom of the hill is the icing on the cake.

All the reviews on Trip Advisor regarding Tamodi are spot on.The rooms,setting,quality of furnishings are just absolutely fantastic.As you walk into the reception room the sheer scale of the place is stunning and the rooms themselves are lovely.
The setting and views at breakfast on the decking overlooking the valley is just breathtaking and the breakfast itself simply delicious.
Overall a REAL GEM

For a meal Enrico`s is just down the road, right on the beach and the food and service there was very good.Tenikwa is 15 minutes away where you can go walking with cheetas which is an amazing experience,advisable to book in advance.

We had our best experience in SA in Plettenberg Bay. We had a lot of emotions when we approached the lodge. Beauty, space, view, nature, architecture, clean, modern,... Once inside we were welcomed by Owen and Hastings. Service, friendly, clean, beautifull, serenity were again the emotions we experienced. Everybody at Tamodi Lodge tries to make your stay unique. And it was. Good advices, excellent breakfast, smiles everywhere, quite nad beautifull. Go and spent some days there. You can use it as base to visit from Wilderness to Tsistsikama.

There is a reason that this place has a perfect record of 5-stars on TripAdvisor. It is LITERALLY perfect. I dont think that I will ever again stay at such a high quality place for such a reasonable price. I felt like we were living like kings in the honeymoon suite. Every single detail down to the door handles and faucets are of the highest quality. That is just getting started. The view, the pool, the breakfast, the staff...everything was just perfect.

Yes- this lodge is a bit further away from Plett Bay, but we found ourselves not wanting to even waste our time with leaving. Everything we needed or wanted was right at Tamodi and the view was better from our back yard than anywhere in Plett Bay.

If I could return easily (not so easy being from the USA), I would do so as frequently as possible. When I look back at my two weeks in S. Africa, our stay at Tamodi stands out as one of the best (if not THEE best) parts.

DO NOT MISS.

Room Tip: HONEYMOON SUITE- worth the extra money.

What an amazing place. We had 3 nights and would love to have stayed more.The breakfasts were absolutely fabulous, the home made granola was something else! and the fresh fruits were beautifully prepared, as was the Tamodi cooked breakfast. Swimming in the pool was a fantastic experience, and the peace and quiet there is infectious. The staff are so warm and friendly and the property is absolutely stunning. I had my birthday there and we would love to go back again next year!. Enrico's on the beach was great for lunch/dinner. It is a little out of Plettenberg Bay but well worth the extra car journey. It really was a highlight in our 2 weeks touring around S Africa.

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.
