view web site ›'s insider take:

Imagine a California hotel—beiges and pale blues, clean lines, massive windows onto the sea—crossed with an English manor house, and you've got the Plettenberg. Owner Liz McGrath, whose collection of hotels in the region also includes the Marine Hermanus, has put a Laura Ashley stamp on the 37 rooms, which are split between the main building and the Blue Wing. McGrath attempts to make guests feel at home by scattering public sitting areas throughout the property—perfect spots to gather for sherry before dinner at the intimate Sand restaurant. Treatments at the Carchele Spa are a bargain at $140 for day-long packages.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2006
