About the Resort

The Robberg Beach Lodge offers 30 rooms in four luxurious adjacent villas at Robberg Beach in Plettenberg Bay. Together, Beachy Head Villa, Robberg House, Cottage Pie and Cordovan Villa offer a boutique accommodation experience right on the beach. 

Nestled at the heart of the world-famous Garden Route, Plettenberg Bay is a destination of distinction for all travellers in South Africa. Its splendid sky and seascapes and the unspoilt beauty of its lagoons and beaches, as well as a great selection of restaurants, bars and coffee shops, make it a great destination for all ages.

There are so many things to do in the area, especially for families and couples on a romantic retreat. 


Just five minutes from the bustling restaurants, galleries, coffee shops and bars of Plett’s Main Street, The Robberg is a tranquil beach-side haven. This understated, private retreat boasts 5-star luxury accommodation, and is ideally situated, at Robberg’s beautiful Blue Flag Beach.

Robberg Beach, only a 2 minute walk from the lodge is popular for shore based dolphin and whale watching, striking views of Robberg Peninsula as well as lengthy strolls.

This snow white sandy beach stretches for kilometres between the Robberg Peninsula and Beacon Island. The beach has lifesavers in season, ablution facilities, a deck, boardwalks and benches as well as chair and umbrella rentals and various parking spots.

Plettenberg Bay is home to two superb golf courses, both less than a fifteen-minute drive from The Robberg Beach Lodge. The signature Goose Valley and Turtle Creek course and the Plettenberg Bay Country Club course both offer unique golfing experiences in spectacular surroundings.


In addition, the Jack Niklaus signature course at Simola and the spectacular Pezula championship course are only a 30 minute drive away from the Robberg, in nearby Knysna. Both of these courses are ranked in the Golf Digest top 30 in South Africa. We're happy to assist with reservations at these courses.

Pre-booking is essential at these very popular courses, so please book ahead of time to make sure you don't miss out on a great golf experience.

Robberg Nature Reserve offers great walking and hiking trails and is an excellent view site for cliff based whale and dolphin sightings. There are three circular walks of various lengths, caves, and extensive information about Robberg’s geology, archaeology and existing marine life. If you like to live on the wild side, then the Robberg Nature Reserve will appeal to you.


Whale Watching
In early June, southern right whales leave their Antarctic feeding ground to frolic in the warm waters of the Cape coast. Here they mate, calve and generally hang out, occasionally flopping a tail up, or sticking their heads out of the water to check out the humans.

Robberg House has 2 large viewing decks that offer out-of-this-world views, perfect for viewing the whales and dolphins in the bay.

Wine Tasting
Bramon Wine Estate, is a boutique vineyard and is the first and only Estate this far East of the Western Cape, situated 20km East of Plettenberg Bay in a mountainous area called The Crags.

This family run estate has broken new ground by pioneering vineyards in the Plettenberg Bay area, producing an award winning Methode Cap Classique sparkling wine and now a beautiful still wine The Crags has added to the range.
