Perched on a hilltop overlooking the beautiful Plettenberg Bay is the home of Sky Villa – a luxurious hotel that delivers on opulence, striking design and five-star facilities.
With its plush boutiques and smart complexes, Plettenberg Bay is hardly a sleepy seaside village getaway. In spite of developments that have taken place in recent decades, the town remains a shrine to nature’s bounty – boasting the most superb sunrises, golden lagoons, and of course, beautiful beaches.
Unsurprisingly, this coastal getaway draws legions of local and international holidaymakers to its shores – with the Sky Villa Boutique Hotel and its sister property, The Bungalow, being one of Plett’s major attractions.
Activities and packages on offer
There’s the famed Robberg hike, a favourite weekend jaunt for the locals that takes you from the rocky dunes to wave-splattered beaches. This idyllic shore strip is the perfect spot to watch seals at play. Should you want to get closer to them, Sky Villa has a Seal the Deal (swim-with-the-seals) package on offer.
Other exciting experiences to choose from is a cruise down the Keurbooms River (Sky Villa’s Champagne Cruise & Stand Up paddling Package), as well as their Stay and Play Package, which includes a round of golf at the Gary Player-golf course.
Then there are the many boutiques, bakeries and beauty salons to explore. Those who love browsing through interesting stores can meander down Plett’s high street, refuelling occasionally with a flat white and slice of buttery cake – or rejuvenating with a romantic Thai Oil couples’ massage at Royal Thai Plett (included in Sky Villa’s Perfect Date Package).
There’s also just as much fulfilment to be found at the hotel itself (it’s almost as if every angle and corner of Sky Villa has been carefully designed to make you stop and stare). The gardens are even more pleasing – with flurries of fynbos, a smudgy pastel landscape, and a vista that rolls all the way down to a sapphire sea.
Looking for a chilled, funky atmosphere? Then look no further than The Bungalow (Sky Villa’s sister property that is just a hop away). This hotel is cleverly designed to give you the ‘ultimate’ toes-in-the-sand… sipping cocktails… beachside (luxury) living. You won’t be blamed for wanting to take it all in at both these resorts.
Food for the soul
Meanwhile, the panorama from Sky Villa’s restaurant is spectacular (which may be the reason for its favourite foodie destination reputation). Expect plenty of bold flavours which showcase the juiciest ingredients from the garden, along with freshly caught Line fish that pair perfectly with your coastal location. As for the desserts? Let’s just say that it’s an experience so delicious, it will take care of all your cravings for the next week.
Of course, life is sadly not just about dessert – so here’s a word of advice – go hungry! Because Sky Villa’s portions are super generous, you’ll definitely want to do them justice.
To put it succinctly…
A weekend getaway at Sky Villa Boutique Hotel will undoubtedly leave you feeling cosseted and cocooned – and more than ready to tackle life below the clouds.
