Reviewed 20 April 2014

We booked to stay at the Tamodi Lodge, due to a change in plan did not stay, however upon visiting, we were blown away by the welcome from the management , who offered complimentary tea and a guided tour of this luxury establishment. This excellent approach will definitely result in us returning and staying in the future and highly recommending this to fellow travellers. You will not be disappointed.

What a great place to stay and visit. The views are second to none, the service is just as awesome. Tamodi is well equipped to cater for your every need without invading your personal space. It is ideally located for visits to nearby Plettenberg, Bloukrans bungy, Monkey land to name but a few.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view and are of similar size

From the moment you walk through the big double doors Tamodi will take your breath away. Constructed in the manner of a superior game lodge with high, soaring roof lines, wide spaces open or easily accessible to a South African summer, the accommodations are well spread from each other and supremely comfortable, private and, yes, just a bit decadent but in the most tasteful of ways. The place is a designer dream full of space, quiet art, peaceful moments, stunning views and beautiful furnishings. You really do feel as though this is one of the most stunning place you are ever likely to stay in.

Owen and his staff and very helpful. Breakfasts on the covered balcony area are top class and delicious. There is a great restaurant and beach just a few minutes down the lane so there is no need to drive into Plett if you don't feel like it. Based upon our experience the restaurant (the name escapes me but it is Italian) is one of the better ones in the area full of locals which is always a good test.

Tamodi is not cheap by South African standards but it is a stand-out and worth every penny for a special stay. Go spoil yourselves.

Tamodi is quite honestly Plettenberg Bay's best kept secret !! Tucked away, overlooking an indigenous forest creates the perfect setting for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday. From scrumptious breakfasts, to wine tasting from Owen's private collection, to relaxing at the rim flow pool reading a book from their library, to luxurious accommodation with rooms with a view....Tamodi has it all !! Close to tourist attractions & town but far enough to be in a tranquil setting - I love this place and will return as often as i can !!

An absolutely breathtaking place from the moment you arrive. The welcome, our room and breakfast were all first class. We slept with the curtains open - the stars were so bright in the black sky, and the view in the morning was first class. Will return one day.

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!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Tamodi Lodge and Stables (luxury 4 star accommodation in Plettenberg Bay), a family-run establishment, 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 three luxurious honeymoon suites, and two luxury suites with their own private plunge pools. 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
