Located in the heart of the Garden Route, Kurland Hotel is a private country home that has been converted into an exclusive hideaway. It offers luxury accommodation and an award-winning restaurant.

Kurland Hotel is one of South Africa's most exclusive country retreats, situated within easy reach of the beach resorts of Plettenberg Bay and the famous Garden Route. This luxury hotel forms part of a vast 1,700 acre estate, between the Tsitsikamma Mountains and the coastline at Plettenberg. The vistas are breathtaking.

The rooms are equipped with all the expected modern amenities including LCD television, electronic safe, mini bar, underfloor heating and heated towel rails.

Evening meals at Kurland are usually taken in the candlelit dining room or in the adjacent courtyard, but the staff are happy to arrange for you to dine on your own private terrace, in the library or in the rose garden if the mood takes you.
