Visiting Kurland Hotel or Kurland Villa morphs you into a destressed, peaceful and tranquil state. It’s a cocoon of excellent food, attentive staff, comfortable suites, magnificent sunsets, beautiful and safe early morning walks, birdlife, horses, daily polo practice and of course the space to relax and unwind.


Kurland Hotel

Plettenberg Bay. Western Cape.

Kurland Hotel has been designed with exceptional facilities for family holidays and the Mediterranean climate makes this the ideal year-round destination for vacations, romantic getaways, exclusive weddings and family reunions. 


The boutique, luxury Hotel offers gracious country living with just 12 suites that afford utter privacy. It has acquired a reputation as an exclusive hideaway located on a vast 700 hectare private Estate of incredible natural beauty, situated between the mountains and the pristine beaches of Nature’s Valley. 


Kurland Villa has been in the same family for three generations. The villa is situated on private property adjoining the Estate, in a secluded and commanding location near indigenous forest. The villa is a large, recently-built home designed in the Cape Dutch tradition, but with all requirements of modern living fully catered for. The villa is suitable for families or groups looking for an exclusive, secluded country living experience. It is also the perfect base for polo enthusiasts who might be playing/watching polo at the estate. Although ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’, it is close to Plettenberg Bay and its many attractions.


Apart from being a destination in itself, Kurland is a mere 5 km drive from elephants, big cats, the Birds of Eden and Monkeyland and the magnificent Nature’s Valley beach turn-off, with Keurbooms beach only 8 km away. 


Kurland Hotel and Kurland Villa are a perfect marriage of old-world charm enhanced by modern sophistication. The charm of Kurland Hotel lies in its authenticity and it is no surprise that it is regarded as one of the best hotels in the world as well as the most desirable address on the Garden Route.
