Bitou River Lodge B&B in Plettenberg Bay

Watch the birds on the river from your bed; explore the wetlands by canoe; relax in a hammock at the pool or swim at one of Plettenberg Bay's nearby beaches. Enjoy a traditional country breakfast and then go for a short walk along the eco-trail and keep a lookout for otters and birds.

Each spacious, tranquil room has its own entrance and patio with garden and river views; an overhead fan and under-floor heating; a bar fridge and TV with M-Net. The golf courses, game drive, horse-riding, beaches, restaurants and shops just a 10 minute drive away. Monkeys, birds, elephants and wild cats can be visited at the Crags, fifteen minutes away.

Not feeling that energetic. Enjoy the birds in our large indigenous garden; wander along the Eco-Stroll and learn the names of the trees; cook your own supper on a fire next to the river; count the stars.

We speak French, Afrikaans and some German. Children 10 are welcome. We offer free Wi-Fi, so bring your laptop.

The most beautiful Bitou River Lodge. A real home away from home stay in this magical place. Incredible hospitality from the owners. Big spacious rooms with a lounge and patios. Delicious dinner and breakfast spread. Very close to Plettenberg Bay town to shop, walk the beaches of hike in the area. I will definitely be back.

Amazing, peaceful, relaxing guest house on a farm that is remarkably close to town and beaches. Especially love the quaint river that runs next to the guest house.

An absolutely delightful B & B on the banks of the Bitou River. Your hostess, Sue, cannot be faulted for her friendliness and produces one of the best breakfasts we have experienced. A quiet, relaxed environment and a heaven for twitchers (bird watchers for the uninitiated) yet only minutes from the bustling town of Plett. Each room has its own terrace overlooking the river, a plus provided by Sue's architect husband who designed the rooms.
