#WishIWasThere: The Bungalow, Plettenberg Bay

A privately owned hotel group Cape Summer Villas has a boutique collection of exclusive accommodations in the Western Cape along the Cape coast to Plettenberg Bay. A total of nine properties, all carefully selected to showcase their surroundings with tastefully decorated interiors, the finest linen and 5-star service, cater to the discerning guest. The Bungalow, a luxury (but laid-back) 5-star guesthouse in Plettenberg Bay, is part of this collection.

Acting manager, Elmar Killian, told me more about this gorgeous space.

What distinguishes The Bungalow from others of its kind?

The Bungalow provides the ultimate experience in beach-side living. You really can’t get closer to the beach than at The Bungalow. It’s right on the water’s edge at Hobie Beach – one of the best locations in Plett. It is the perfect mix of luxury, sea, sun and sand.  It’s a chilled and funky retreat where guests can sip cocktails on the deck, leave their flip-flops at the door and enjoy the amazing sea views. Without a doubt the BEST beachfront vibe.

Imagine sipping on cocktails with this view.

What’s the one thing you wish people walk away with after visiting?

That they leave feeling This is my very own seaside bungalow and, This is the kind of place where I can kick off my shoes, lounge on the sofa, spend time walking, swimming, surfing, reading books … and that they’ll be back very soon!

What, in your opinion, can visitors look forward to once things return to “normal”?

At The Bungalow – no matter what – they can always look forward to the sea, the sun, the beach, the sand and friendly personal service.   

Any advice for business owners during this time?

Stay positive and stay in touch with guests.
