Beacon Island offers four star beachfront accommodation in the Garden Route.
Beacon Island Hotel is built on a rocky headland extending into the warm Indian Ocean. Located in the sleepy coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, the hotel enjoys an unrivaled luxury setting. It is ideal for those seeking to experience some of the finest beaches on the Garden Route. The hotel is set against a breathtaking backdrop provided by the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges, which appear blue-grey in the distance. The hotel is bordered by the Robberg Nature Reserve. The area boasts a splash of rivers and lagoons, indigenous forests and long sandy beaches.
The newly renovated and upgraded hotel consists of two hundred rooms, almost all with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are tastefully decorated. Each is equipped with a television as well as tea/coffee making facilities. The rooms have small safes in which valuables can be secured. Three restaurants that cater to varied culinary tastes are located within the hotel itself.
The resort is ideal for families seeking to enjoy the beaches of the Garden Route. Facilities and activities available include two swimming pools, a sauna, scuba diving, table tennis, floodlit tennis courts, squash, a massage and beauty salon as well as laundry services. An entertainment program for children keeps the young ones amused and affords parents some well-deserved relaxation time.
For over twenty years, I have regarded Beacon Island as a great place to have a vacation. There are very few other hotels in South Africa that are located on a fine beach with waters of an enjoyable temperature. The hotel offers a host of activities that cater to the entire family. It has been refurbished in the last few years. Surrounded by the ocean on three sides and overlooking a backdrop of scenic mountains, I cannot think of another hotel in South Africa with as impressive a coastal setting.Read More
