We had a great and relaxing time at BellaManga. Our hosts were very helpful. The staff asked daily how they can help even though we had a self catering lodge. We received great tips and enjoyed walking around the farm and being so close to the animals. For family’s a great place.

Perfect reception by Jenny, and the rondewal was one of the most impressive overnight accommodations I have ever booked. We sat out load-shedding in front of an open fire and had a tremendous breakfast! The location is a little remote but the property is gorgeous.

We visited Plettenberg Bay with a group of 9 students and two chaperones. The cabins were absolutely perfect for our group and the kids enjoyed immensely. Our other hotel cancelled on us at the last minute and Jenny and Chris saved us big time and welcomed us with open arms. They prepared a delicious breakfast for our hungry teenagers and kept our kids happy throughout! I highly recommend this property to anyone wishing for an escape but also wants to be close enough to all the sites and restaurants to enjoy in Plett. Thank you again!

This is one of the friendliest Place I've been on the whole garden route. Super comfortable and large rooms and an amazing outside area with fire places, animals and such a beautiful garden. I would want to go straight back there.

This was a long awaited big family holiday with family members travelling from Cape Town, Johannesburg and France. We stayed in the 3 lodges and it was just wonderful! The setting and gardens are magnificent and the lodges were amazing with everything we needed, clean and beautiful. Jenny and Chris were absolutely amazing from the word go and nothing was too much for them even our own real Christmas tree picked and planted for us, what a special touch! The servicing of the lodges was incredible and allowed us to truly relax. I would highly recommend Bella Manga for an amazing, rejuvenating time away with incredible service offered! Thanks again to Jenny, Chris and all their wonderful staff.

We had a wonderfull stay for 4 nights with our 1 year old son. The cabin was perfect with a well equipped kitchen, a baby chair and cot and separate area where our son could sleep. The whole guesthouse is beautifull with an emence eye for detail, and the hosts are so friendly and welcoming. We had a home cooked meal twice during our stay which was só good and convinient for us! We'd love to come back some day.
