Bitou River Lodge

About 3 km (2 miles) on the R340 to Wittedrif (off the N2), Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape, 6600, South Africa

About 3 km (2 miles) upstream from the Keurboom Lagoon, this lovely, quiet, restful B&B has a wonderful location on the bank of the Bitou River, with rooms overlooking a pretty garden and a quiet bird-rich and lily-filled pond. The decor is understated and soothing, with neutral pastels dominating. They don't serve dinner, but you can self-cater. Breakfasts are delicious affairs with freshly baked breads, muffins, and other goodies, in addition to the usual fruit, cereal, and eggs. Bitou feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, but it's only a 10-minute drive from the center of Plettenberg Bay. Don't pass up the opportunity to explore the river in one of the available canoes.
