Nature lovers exploring South Africa’s beloved Garden Route couldn’t find a more typically South African destination so in tune with the area’s flora, fauna and heritage than Fynbos Ridge. Featuring a grand Cape Dutch-style country house, set in a beautifully fragrant fynbos garden, Fynbos Ridge enjoys a mountain backdrop and close proximity to the popular beach town of Plettenberg Bay. Award-winning 5-star accommodation is offered in the country house, as well as in secluded garden cottages dotted around the estate’s indigenous gardens. The emphasis here is on tranquility and relaxation, and this luxurious haven is the perfect starting point from which to explore the surrounds.
Choose between staying in one of the Country House’s four double luxury rooms, the double superior luxury room or one of the estate’s three two-bedroom self-catering garden cottages. Rooms in the Country House are fully en suite and boast stunning views of the surrounding area, from the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains to the indigenous gardens below.
Guests can enjoy the dawn chorus from their own verandah or simply from the comfort of their king-sized bed. Breakfasts can be taken on the outdoor patio or in the al fresco dining room. Larger groups and families may wish to stay in one of the garden cottages, which sleep up to five guests and offer private self-catering facilities including a built-in barbeque.
In terms of amenities, there’s a private pool with stunning views, and guests can also take a stroll around the gardens and learn more about South Africa’s beautiful biodiversity.
Mealtimes are something to look forward to as Fynbos Ridge truly offers fine dining. Boasting an exquisite menu specializing in fresh local produce, many of the ingredients are actually from the lodge’s own food gardens. Self-catering guests are of course also welcome to help themselves to the estate’s organic vegetables and herbs – just adding to the home-style appeal of this destination.
And last but not least, with over 85 species of birds visiting the immaculately kept gardens, you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’re in the Garden of Eden.
