The location, views and contemporary architecture were stunning. The dinning area on the top floor has amazing views over the sea and we spotted a whale whilst staying there. It was about a 10 minute walk to access the beach which was virtually deserted. The rooms were large & very clean and the property was well run. Staff exceptionally helpful. The location is some distance from the town and there are no local restaurants, so you really need a car to drive into the town to eat. You might be able to manage with taxis. If you like modern architecture it's a great place to stay.

Attention to detail is the name of the game here. Super comfortable beds, spacious rooms, and all the beautiful decorations which give the African feel. This was where we landed on our first trip to South Africa. The breakfasts were gourmet. The staff, led by Christa and managed by Joe, bends over backwards to satisfy your every need- and always with a smile. We loved this place.

Plettenberg bay is a great place to stop in the garden route and this is the place to stay when visiting. The breakfast was one of the best we had in SA - it was nice to get more choices other than the usual traditional cooked options. I loved the pancakes. All the staff were lovely and friendly. The room was so comfy and we enjoyed the views from the massive expansive windows. The pool is very small

Thank you so much - this is the place to stay when visiting - we cannot ask for a better recommendation. I'm not sure which pool you are referring to that is small, but fortunately we have three pools, one of which is a 25m natural pool! kind regards Christa

Nice clean hotel good healthy choices for breakfast lovely room but not the best location for the money 5 minute drive to town and the views you see on trip advisor are NOT the views now as building going up which blocks the views. The town has good choice of restaurants and shops.

Thank you for the review. Christiana Lodge is situated in the select area of Solar Beach, a quiet and peaceful suburb of Plettenberg Bay and a short 7-minute walk to Robberg Beach. Since Covid, a substantial number of people have moved to Plettenberg Bay. As a consequence, more houses have been built, two of which can be seen from Christiana Lodge. Fortunately we can still see the whole of Robberg from the main dining area!

Lovely room, and very useful to be able to walk to the Robberg Penisula if you would like to walk there. It took about 20-25 mins through a short cut. Breakfasts were lovely. You will need to get taxis to go into town and back as it's too far to walk but these were very reasonable and meant we could enjoy some drinks!
