Living with the birds at the beautiful Sky Villa Boutique Hotel in Plettenberg Bay

Surely one of the most luxurious places to stay in Plettenberg Bay is Sky Villa Boutique Hotel, located high on a hill in Baron Estate.

Upon arrival at Sky Villa you are instantly transported to life in another realm – the sky!

Part of the Cape Summer Villas Boutique Collection, the incredible vantage point of Sky Villa let’s you live with the birds and experience their 360 degree view throughout the day.

Sea-facing rooms offer incredible views across the Keurbooms lagoon and Plettenberg bay. These rooms feature a King Sized Bed and en-suite bathroom with a shower, heated towel racks and under floor heating. Our kids loved the fact that the TV came with Netflix and not just the usual DSTV hotel package. A private balcony opens up to an endless ocean view and is the perfect spot for an early morning coffee (thanks to the inroom Nespresso). The Mountain-facing rooms have equally enthralling views out across the distance peaks, including the aptly named Formosa peak.

Wake early and watch the magnificent bold orange sunrise streak across the sky from your balcony, or linger longer as dusk settles and enjoy an evening drink at the sky deck while everything around you takes on a soft pink hue.

This boutique hotel is impeccably designed with stylish communal areas, both inside and out. The decor reflects the secret life of birds, with beautiful artworks at every turn.

Whereas some places you stay are merely a place to rest your head after a busy day of activities, at Sky Villa you’ll be keen to linger longer and enjoy the peaceful surroundings as much as possible.

Start your morning in the onsite gym then spend your day enjoying the view, your book or just basking in the sunshine next to one of the two pools, then retire to one of the bars for a pre-dinner drink. The downstairs bar, located near the pool area is great for relaxing whilst catching up on the latest televised sporting event. Sky Bar showcases the spectacular views and is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or two!

The restaurant at Sky Villa is a treat and surely one of the most spectacular culinary destinations on the Garden Route. Here every ingredient is individually selected for seasonality, quality and flavour before making its way onto your plate. Enjoy delicious meals in the restaurant as the city lights twinkle in the distance, then retire to spend a cozy evening next to the roaring fireplace in the communal lounge. If you’re traveling with kids you may like to know that the onsite restaurant also offers room service which is incredibly convenient.

One of the highlights of our stay at Sky Villa was certainly the staff and their high level of service and attention. This is truly a luxury destination that offers opulence, striking design and five-star facilities with warm hospitality all in an unrivaled setting.
