Kurland Hotel, Plettenburg Bay

And you’d be entirely right. At the Kurland the staff know that once the children are happy, the whole family can settle back and enjoy themselves. Sample the gourmet food, the excellent wine and warm ambience.

So exactly how is that achieved? You’ll find the Kurland has a huge range of imaginative all-action events and a private playroom for children. There are sleeping lofts above the suites, special menus and dining conservatory, excellent childminders and babysitters. Even invitations to sit at the Chef’s Table in the kitchen.

And all in a place so grown up and sophisticated it hosts international Polo matches and has its own polo club. No fairytales!
