We stayed at Periwinkle for 2 nights and wished we never had to leave!
The location is a short walk (steps really) from Robberg Beach, perfect for early morning beach runs, afternoon swims and evening strolls.
The infinity pool and deck chairs allow unobstructed views of the crashing surf and the 'honesty bar' mans you never have to go without a craving. The kitchen fridge is stocked with drinks which are self serve, guests are just asked to fill out a receipt to charge their room later. Brilliant!
Every afternoon, the staff make some sort of sweet treat - we had milk tart and a fridge cheesecake during our stay which is set out with afternoon tea for guest to enjoy.
There are only 7 or so rooms in the whole lodge so it feels really private and quiet. The only time we really saw other guests was in the morning at breakfast time.
Breakfast was delicious, a full spread of croissants, breads, cheeses/hams, fruit, fruit juice etc. The staff come around and take your order to make your eggs/bacon/toast choice fresh for you. They also do teas, coffees, cappuccinos and really go out of their way to satisfy every desire.
We discovered the sauna on the bottom floor which is private for 2 people - great way to detox after enjoying all the delicious seafood Plett restaurants have to offer.
I would highly recommend Periwinkle and will be going back as soon as possible!
