Hotel Overview


In the heart of the Garden Route, close to the picturesque beach resort of Plettenberg Bay.

Rooms at Kurland

Twelve beautiful suites, scattered amongst the original Cape Dutch homestead and fragrant rose gardens. All have pretty, country-house style décor and most come with adjoining loft rooms specially designed for children.

Food and Facilities

Striking the balance between guests old and young is where Kurland really comes into its own. While children are encouraged, they by no means dominate the hotel, so adult guests can enjoy the excellent array of food and facilities. Gourmet meals are served in the dining room, while kids eat in their own conservatory.  There’s riding for all ages, from top class polo ponies to stocky Shetlands for the little ones.  There’s a swimming pool, a spa a gym, tennis courts, and quad bikes to explore the estate.

Activities at Kurland

This is Garden Route central, so the options are almost endless. There are several world class golf courses within half an hour of Kurland, scenic microlight or helicopter tours can be arranged, and there is an elephant sanctuary nearby. There’s boating and mountain biking, fishing and snorkeling, gorgeous beaches, and some fabulous hiking.
